Beef Tenderloin Sandwich

So... what can you do when you have some leftover meat from dinner?
You can turn it into a delicious sandwich!

We wanted to try this recipe for quite some time, though I was not able to find "truffle butter" which I assume it would be hard to find it in Chile also, I substituted it with a lemon mayo.  In this case, we used leftover beef tenderloin (which made the sandwich absolutely scrumptious and delicious), but you can use any kind of meat you have and/or want.


1/2 lb. beef tenderloin (or any other meat)
1 French baguette
1 cup mayo
1/2 lemon, juiced
Sliced Parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)
Fresh baby arugula


Slice your meat about 1/2 inch thick and set aside. In a small bowl, mix the mayo and lemon juice.  Split the bread lengthwise and spread the bottom generously with the mayo mixture.  Top with a layer of sliced meat and sprinkle some salt and pepper if needed.

Using a vegetable peeler, shave the Parmesan cheese into thin shards and scatter them over the meat.  Finish with a sprinkling of arugula leaves.  Cover with the top of the baguette, and cut diagonally into 3 or 4 sandwiches.
