Transcript:How to Make a Beef Tenderloin Sandwich
Hi, I’m Roblé for About.com. Today I’m going to show you how make a very tasty beef tenderloin sandwich. Here we go.
Beef Tenderloin Sandwich Ingredients:
- 6 oz. beef tenderloin
- 1 cup watercress (cleaned)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 vine ripened tomato
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 small can chipotle peppers
- 1 sandwich roll
- kosher salt
- black pepper
- canola oil
Slice Tenderloin into Medallions and Season
The first thing we want to do is to take our filet and cut it into medallions. I’ll cut for medallions out of this fillet. They will cook fast and they will cook evenly. Next, we will season the fillet with salt, pepper and oil on each side. We will let the fillet rest while we prepare the rest of the sandwich.
Blend Chipotle Mayo for the Sandwich
Next I will show you how to make a delicious chipotle mayonnaise which we will smear on the sandwich. For the first step we want to put the chipotles into a blender. I’m using a hand blender. You can use what ever kind of blender you have handy in the kitchen.
Purée the peppers and the sauce in the can until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon of the chipotle purée into your half cup of mayonnaise. Season the mix with salt and pepper. Mix together with a fork until fully incorporated.
Begin to Layer the Sandwich Ingredients
We'll prepare our sandwich. The first thing we want to do is take this tomato and clean off the stem area. Next we are going to slice off three nice slices for our sandwich. Next I’m going to take my role and slice into it. I’m not going to slice all the way through it so I can open it up like a book.
Next I’m going to smear the chipotle mayo on the inside of the bread. Next add the watercress to the sandwich and then the tomatoes.
Cook Beef on High and Complete the Sandwich
So, we have a screaming hot sauté pan over high heat, to which we are going to add some oil. Once the oil smokes add in the filet. We are going to series very quickly for about 15 seconds on each side.
I’m cooking my meat a rare if you would like to cook it more to about medium rare or medium, cook it for about 25 to 30 seconds on each side. This meat is done cooking. I’m going to put it right on top of these tomatoes. And here is your tenderloin sandwich with vine ripened tomatoes, watercress, and chipotle mayo.
