What to do with my WIERD fillet?

This is odd. Friend bought a whole PSMO fillet in the cryo. Thing is, it is awful flat. Kind of scrawny, too. Usually, you separate the chine, and then the nice large muscle up top, and you have your fillet, ready for slicing into steaks (or whole roasting). This poor cow somehow got squashed, so that the fillet is not a tube, but flattened out. Anyway, I cut some nice steaks and tied them. Came out fine. But now I have a bunch of good meat, in not so good shape. Want to do something besides traditional steaks. Ideas? Like cut down into strips for fajitas? Other thoughts? Thanks.
