This recipe is taken from Alton Brown's Good Eats, the Tender is the Loin episode.

If you've got a nice vacuum packed PSMO Tenderloin to carve up, here's a great way to use the chain and any scrap meat.

The meat is butterflied or pounded flat, then seared and chopped up. Peppers, onions and mushrooms are cooked in the juices, then cheese placed on top to melt. Then it's all piled onto a nice french bun.

Flatten your chain meat and any other scraps you have. You can flatten it by butteflying it or by pounding it flat.

Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat a heavy pan over medium-high heat.

Brush the meat with oil, then sear in the pan for 3 minutes per side.

Remove the meat from the pan. If you wish you can sautee some vegetables.


Chop up the meat into small pieces.

Return the meat to the pan over low heat and cover with cheese to allow it to melt.

Meanwhile toast your french roll.

Pile the meat on top of the roll, including any veggies if you used them.

Serve while hot!
