Ingredients
  • 8 ounces Prime or very good quality Filet , tenderloin trimmed of excess fat
  • 1/2 cup Horseradish Whipped Cream
  • 4 slices Rye Bread , cut into small squares or triangles (bite sized)
  • 1/4 cup Mustard (your favorite, we prefer whole grain)
  • 6 small dill Pickles , minced finely
  • 1/2 small onion , minced
  • 8 olives , minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
Optional add ins:
  • Shot of cognac
  • raw egg yolk
Instructions
  1. Cut away any fat from the tenderloin.
  2. Cut meat into large cubes to fit in the tube of your meet grinder.(see notes for alternative to met grinder)
  3. Place tenderloin in the freezer for 15 minutes to flash freeze.
  4. Remove from freezer and place cubes of meat in the grinder, grind meat twice to get a nice even texture.
  5. Immediately place bowl in fridge to keep cold until ready to serve.
  6. Prepare all toppings/mix ins.
  7. Have each guest serve themselves allowing them to mix in their favorite add ins. A raw egg and cognac can be added as a binder as well. (My husband loves the egg, I prefer the cognac, others Ive served this don't want any binder.)
  8. Spread onto rye bread squares and top with the horseradish cream.
Recipe Notes

If you don't own a meat grinder, just mince the meat into small pieces. It will not be as fine as going through a grinder, but it will be perfectly fine. You will need to almost mince the meat in order to have the meat tenderized.
