Added by: on Jan 5th, 2011
This ultimate steak sandwich is made with the most expensive cut of the steer, the tenderloin, the only cut tender enough that it doesn't need to be slicedfor a sandwich. One caveat: If you like well-done meat, don't make this sandwich. Because it is so lean, tenderloin dries out as soon .. more >

Ask your butcher to remove the chain, or small muscle that runs along the side of the tenderloin and the shiny tissue, or silver skin, that covers the meat. If you bought your meat at the supermarket and there were no butchers in sight, you will need to do the trimming yourself with a sharp knife.


Slice the tenderloin into 8 perfectly round steaks, each about 3/4 inch thick. Rub the steaks with olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper.


Build a very hot fire in a charcoal grill with the coals 2 to 3 inches away from the grill rack. Use enough charcoal to make a double layer large enough for all the steaks. Or, preheat a gas grill to high.


Meanwhile, if using bread slices for the sandwiches, use a cookie cutter or small bowl to cut the slices into rounds the exact size of the steaks. Brush the bread rounds on one side or the muffins or buns on the cut side with butter.


Grill the steaks for 1 minute, rotate them 90 degrees, and grill for 1 minute more. Using tongs, turn the steaks over and grill for 2 minutes more.


Grill the bread, muffins, or buns on both sides just long enough to brown them. Transfer the steaks to a warmed platter. Serve with the bread and condiments, and let diners assemble their own sandwiches.

These seem to be an Indiana thing -- and I can't tell you how much I miss being able to get one in any sandwich place, like you can back in Indiana. I've never seen them anywhere else. Serve these on hamburger buns (they're a lot bigger than the bun) with slices of fresh, homegrown, ripe tomato (if you can get it -- tomatoes are to Indiana what bourbon is to Kentucky), lettuce, ..

The 'tender' in the name of this sandwich refers to the ease with which you can sink your teeth into it. The cut of pork is actually boneless loin, 'tenderized' with a meat mallet. Serve these monster sandwiches with sliced tomato, sweet onion and lettuce.

To make this dish, you prepare and sauté the pork noisettes in the same way as for Pork Tenderloins with Mushroom Sauce, but apples and apple juice replace the sautéed mushrooms and pureed mushroom sauce. The Calvados, apple brandy from Normandy adds a note of authentic flavor, but it can be omitted. Makes 4 main-course servings.
