What to do with leftover beef tenderloin? Philly Sandwich a la grill

Last night we had a whole beef tenderloin with company. We knew we had too much but we never like to come up short. Also it is just so easy just oven roast it to minimize work and maximize talk time.

So I have a pound of cooked beef tenderloin. What to do? I have been want to try a Philly sandwich but hadn't done any research and it was already 6:30 and something need to be done. So I spent 5 minutes getting the french fries cut and going (See Easiest French Fries Ever) then put the griddle on the grill to preheat on high and started cutting.

OK, it probably won't be repeated frequently because how ofter do you have these leftovers but it is too good to be a 3. It could be more spice for some people but was just right for us. Total time 25 minutes from start of preheat and serving with the fries.

Notes: I used an mandolin for most of the meat cutting but to stay cross-grain, I did need to hand cut some.


Tools: Griddle for grill and a mandolin is helpful

Ingredients:
1 pound of cooked beef to slice thin
1 medium onion sliced 1/4 inch slices and cut in half
1 green pepper cut in 1/2 inch slices
1 red green pepper cut in 1/2 inch slices
1 T vegetable oil
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t salt
1.2 pepper
1/2 t crushed red pepper
1 T precrushed garlic or 3-4 cloves

Instructions:
1) Preheat grill on high with griddle for 10-15 minutes.
2) While preheating a) cut meat into 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick slices. b) cut onion into 1/4 inch disks and then cut them in half. c) cut peppers into 1/4 inch slices.
3) Add 1 T oil to griddle and add onion and peppers to griddle. Stir every 2-3 minutes.
4) While #3, add remaining ingredients to meat in medium bowl and mix will.
 5) After 5 minutes of cooking the vegetables, add meat and stir ever 2-3 minutes for a total time of 10 minutes from the start of the vegetables.
6) Serve on a toasted brot or sub buns and add provolone cheese.

Nice use of leftover beef tenderloin. I hadn't tried it that way but I did use the chain of bull (side meat from a tenderloin) for philly cheese steaks and they were fantastic. I can imagine how good yours tasted.

With this combination of ingredients, it couldn't miss unless I did something stupid.
