Hot Tenderloin Sandwiches


by: Chef Ria

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, onion, and the mandatory mustard. Warning: If you've never had one, these are seriously addictive.

1.  In a small bowl, mix the sour cream, horseradish, and mustard. Set aside.

2.  Trim the tenderloin of any excess fat and silver skin and allow to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Lightly brush or spray with oil and season with salt and pepper. Sear over Direct Medium heat until well marked, about 15 minutes, turning a quarter turn every 3 to 4 minutes. Continue grilling over Indirect Medium heat until cooked to desired doneness, 15 to 20 minutes longer for medium-rare, turning once. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into 1/8-inch slices.

3.  Lightly brush the cut side of the baguette with oil and grill, cut side down, over Direct Medium heat until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds.

4.  Spread the baguette with the sour cream mixture, layer with arugula and sliced tenderloin, then top with the grated cheese. Cut crosswise into individual sandwiches.
