Tenderloin is the tenderest cut of beef. It literally melts
in your mouth. I experimented with a small piece (enough for two people) of
meat but if you are cooking for a large party, just increase the ingredient
amount accordingly. It was plenty for my husband and I. The potatoes and
peppers accompanied it very well. I like my meat cooked well so I cooked it
well but I know that many people prefer to have a pink hue in the middle. The
cooking time can be adjusted to attain that.
You may use leftovers for sandwiches and eat it along a side
of plain yogurt. Enjoy!
