Recipe

Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches With Horseradish Spread

  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • FOR THE TENDERLOIN:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Creole Seasoning
  • One 2-pound beef tenderloin, trimmed of fat
  • FOR THE HORSERADISH SPREAD:
  • 3 tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
  • TO ASSEMBLE:
  • 2 cups baby arugula, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 loaf French bread (about 15 inches long), cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices and lightly toasted
  • 1/2 pound Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350?F.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix together the olive oil and Creole seasoning. Spread this evenly over the tenderloin. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, then sear the tenderloin for 5 minutes on each side in the skillet. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 25 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from the oven and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the tenderloin into thin slices.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, horseradish, salt, and black pepper and whisk to mix. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss the arugula with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Spread about 1/2 teaspoon of the horseradish mixture on each slice of toast. Top with a slice of beef and a few cheese shavings, then finish with a little of the arugula. Top each sandwich with a slice of toast. Pass on a platter to serve.
