I don't cook much beef at home (enjoy it at restaurants) but I am interested in making an appetizer for an upcoming dinner party. Reading recipes online, looks like the tenderloin is the way to go. My initial thought was cooking a skirt steak (alton brown recipe) & slicing that as I've never made a tenderloin. Also, was thinking of serving with chimichurri sauce or red pepper aioli.
Also, can I make the tenderloin a day ahead? FWIW, I always cook non-veg dishes day of party. Lastly, this would be for about 10-12 people, along with other apps.
