I will usually sear it in a pan then roast it with salt, pepper, and a couple sprigs of rosemary. Then make a brandy cream sauce or something else with the fond in the pan. Add in some sort of veggie and some form of potato (I like au gratin with this) and it makes a pretty nice meal for two.

Oh, I makes filets out of the rest of it.

How about slice it up fairly thin, ~1/4", and saute it up in some butter, onion, green pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss it on a good roll.

that's a good option too - but i'm having a brisket sandwich right now for lunch...lol

i think i'll go with your first suggestion - with a brandy (or bourbon? scotch?) cream sauce, lemon risotto and maybe some green beans.

Or, while it would be a waste with tenderloin, you could make a really damn good quesadilla or teppanyaki. A lot of times I will do that with the chain off the tenderloin.

lol, well that's what i've usually done, cube it and use it for something...."normal".

this didn't have a chain, it wasn't a full-on psmo - just a supermarket mini-psmo.
