How much Beef Tenderloin?

Andiereid | Dec 9, 2006 09:02 PM

I want to make sure I had enough, and last year, the butcher really underestimated, so I'm taking a poll. Some of you have seen the menu for the holiday party, but I'll repeat it just so you know what else is available:

Smoked-Salmon stuffed puffs
Alsatian Tart (kind of a pizza topped with bacon and potatoes, cut into small pieces)
Cherry tomatoes stuffed with crab dip
Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp with Orange Marmalade
Lots of Booze

Spinach Salad with Mushrooms and mustard vinaigrette
Poppy Seed Dinner Rolls
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Beef Tenderloin with Bourbon and Cracked Black pepper sauce
Roasted Green Beans with Shallots
Asparagus with galic and roasted red peppers
Lots of wine

La Bete Noire
Mini Lemon Tartlets
Bourbon Balls
Egg Nog Pound Cake with Rum Glaze
Champagne with Chambord and a raspberry

So it's looking like we'll wind up with 25 - 30 people - all moderate eaters. I'm thinking half a pound per person? Or is that too skimpy? Leftovers are just grand, because I'll make stroganof with what's left, if there's enough.
