I've got a pound and a half of beef tenderloin. Any ideas on stretching this to feed 4 people?

      Great ideas! Thank you!
      I'll probably go with Stroganoff because I think I have all the ingredients.
      I'd love to grill it but it's end pieces left over from when I bought a whole tenderloin.

        Butterfly and stuff it. Grill or roast to desired done ness. Serve a cold soup as an app if it's hot where you are, or an heirloom tomato bisque. Soup will fill up your guests a bit so they aren't ravenous & looking for more food.

          Slice into 4 six oz servings, grill mediaum rare.
          Serve with grilled asparagus and roasted new potatoes.

            Vietnamese Shaking beef or any type of stirfry should do the job. Stroganoff is also a terrific idea.

              Beef Stroganoff


              I made this recipe for Christmas Eve last year. Wonderful, and plenty for four.

                Whether it's this recipe or another one, Beef Stroganoff would be my choice.

                  I use this recipe too but I use sour cream instead of whipping cream.
