What to do with leftover tenderloin????

I have half of a very rare nice beef tenderloin left over. What can I do with it besides make french dip or other sandwich?

  1. I wonder if it might work to cut it into thick crosswise slices, let the sliced beef come up to room temp, quickly grill or pan sear it over high heat, and then prepare as tournedos.

    1. Slice it thin and top a salad of fresh mesclun or crisp romaine, and add thinly sliced red onions and chunks of blue cheese. Dressing should be a light vinegraitte, balsamic preferable. Great steak salads are wonderful

        Drool... I might add a touch of mustard to the vinaigrette, too!

      2. Here's one of my favorite recipes for leftover beef:

        It's very forgiving. I make it with leftovers or will grill a steak specifically for it. It's really (really!) good.

          So is this more or less like a salad do you serve the meat cold or do you re-heat it?

            Yes, it's very much like a steak salad. I usually aim for room temp for the meat, but it's often on the cool side. Definitely not reheated.

          1. I like to add it sliced, to some pasta with a simple white sauce
