1 whole beef tenderloin, about 3-4 pounds, tied but not fatted
¼ cup olive oil, separated (picual preferred)
2 TBS Tony’s Euro-Crust, Z Blend, Tuscan Grill rub
-or your favorite seasoning blend to taste
24 Tony’s rolls: knot, dinner or brioche rolls
-or 2 baguettes, or 1 loaf ciabatta bread
1 container Organic Girl arugula, mixed greens or baby romaine
1 pint cherry tomatoes, split
Lars’ Crispy Onions, to taste
1 batch horseradish sour cream
1 batch Sriracha Mayonnaise
1 jar spicy or honey mustard
Preheat oven to 400°.
Brush tenderloin with oil and sprinkle generously with seasoning of your choice.
Heat a heavy roasting pan, oven safe pancake skillet or two oven safe skillets over medium high heat. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and brown tenderloin on three sides. Turn to the fourth side and transfer to oven (convection fan on for even more browning). Roast to desired temperature (about 30 minutes, 120° internal suggested), remove, tent with foil and rest for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, reduce oven to 350°. Split rolls, leave halves together and place on a cookie sheet in oven to warm.
Cut tenderloin into thin 1/8 inch slices, transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with pan drippings. Serve on rolls with greens, tomatoes and Lars Crispy Onions. Compliment with horseradish sauce, Sriracha Mayonnaise and mustard.
