Ideas for stretching 1-1/2 lbs beef tenderloin

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

  1. 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.

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

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

          1. 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.

            1. 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.
