Beef Tenderloin Sammies for a Crowd
You can assemble these sammies or serve the sliced beef tenderloin on a platter alongside the sauces and greens for your guests to get creative and make their own!
- 1 beef tenderloin
- Extra virgin olive oil ( EVOO), for drizzling
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 bunch watercress, roughly chopped
- 1 bunch arugula, roughly chopped
- 1-2 baguettes
For the Horseradish-Sour Cream Sauce:
- 2-3 heaping tablespoons horseradish
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
For the Mustard-Caper Sauce:
- 3/4-1 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup capers, chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 450°F.
Arrange the beef tenderloin on a roasting pan or heavy duty cookie sheet. Drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and cook for 15 minutes at 450°F, then turn the oven down to 350°F and cook for 30 minutes, until a thermometer inserted in the meat reads 140°F. Let the beef rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
While the meat is resting, combine the ingredients for each of the sauces in separate bowls.
Cut the baguette into 3-4-inch chunks and cut each chunk lengthwise for sandwiches. Slice the beef and assemble onto the sliced baguettes. Top each sandwich with your choice of sauce along with a small bunch of arugula or watercress.
