    Here is how I made the most of leftover tenderloin.

    I made that roulade the other day, but I bought the entire tenderloin. When you cut the Chateaubriand out of the middle, you are left with two considerably large pieces that you really can't do anything with. One of them tapers off very quickly, and the other one is thick but it is made up of several muscles that don't really hold together well. I probably should have taken a picture.

    Anyhow, I'm not serving this at some fancy restaurant where people might feel cheated by what I did. Everybody here at home (well, me and Mrs Mosca) is perfectly fine with this.

    Bacon wrapped filet mignon.

      Amen, Dude!!!

    Really nice Mosca ! I like mine Med to Med/Rare.


      Good grief. Cheating? Anything with tenderloin and bacon ain't cheating!


        Bacon-wrapped tenderloin has been around for years. I may be wrong, first 1844 in Milwaukee, along with PBR.


          I'm all in on this one....no harm no foul on those lil beauties


            Very resourceful, them both sound an look like deliciousness jus waitin to happen, Brother!

            Did ya cook em indoors, or out on yer cooker?

            I certainly wouldn't be feelin cheated, I can tell that from here!


              What's this " left over" tenderloin you speak of? Never heard of it


                Brilliant idea, I might do that and use "meat glue" to hold it together as well as the bacon. I never know what to do with that portion of the tenderloin. Funny thing is that part costs the same as the Chateaubriand.


                  Great call!
