Grilled Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches Recipe

Grilled Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches Recipe

My daughter shared these hearty sandwiches with me, and I think they're a savory melt-in-your-mouth treat. The sweet-sour onions and mushrooms are perfect over the tender beef and lip-smacking garlic mayonnaise. —Ruth Lee of Troy, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 70 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (1 pound)
  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 slices French bread (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 cup fresh arugula

Directions

  • 1. Combine the first four ingredients; rub over meat. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut top off of garlic. Brush with oil.

  • 3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil and saute onion for 5 minutes. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 10-12 minutes or until onion is golden. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Add next four ingredients; cook until reduced slightly
  • 4. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into 4 slices.
  • 5. Serve warm on bread with garlic mayonnaise, arugula and onion mixture. Yield: 4 servings.
