While I was intending to make a simple Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio while visiting Certified Angus Beef® brand in Wooster, Ohio, I soon realized that a one pound tenderloin makes A LOT of beef carpaccio, much more than I needed for my salad.

I’m a firm believer that no beef, and certainly not such a fine cut as Chateaubriand (fancy for tenderloin), should ever go to waste.

World renowned Chef Tony Biggs and I set out to find ingredients in the Certified Angus Beef® pantry suitable for such a fine piece of meat. The conclusion, we both worship garlic and bread, seriously, Chef Tony and I are two peas a pod: Garlic Aioli smothered thick on grilled bread with a few eye pleasing embellishments.

I could seriously eat this garlic aioli with a spoon by itself… or on anything else deemed to be a suitable vehicle to get it from point A to my mouth. Another fun fact, it is rumored to be the favorite sauce of the King of Jordan! But shhh… you didn’t hear that from me.

So I understand that not everyone is out crusting, searing and thinly slicing their own beef carpaccio.

The alternative is very thinly sliced, rare roast beef from the deli counter. It won’t have the same crust, but it will still taste delicious!

Crostini are seriously the perfect party appetizer. They don’t require a plate and can be eaten in one of two bites without any mess.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat up grill to high heat, lightly char cut bread. if you do not have a grill, toast under a watchful eye on broil in the oven. Remove and set aside.
  • Place whole egg and egg yolk in your blender. Turn on high and allow to whip around until eggs are a light and fluffy. Remove the center hole of your blender lid. While running on high very, very slowly drizzle in olive oil. If you add to fast it will not emulsify properly.
  • Leave blender on after adding olive oil and now add whole garlic cloves, juice from a fresh lemon and 1 teaspoon lemon zest. Season with a sprinkle of fine sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Continue to blend on high for at least one minute. Stop and taste, add more salt and/or pepper to taste.
  • Smear garlic aioli on each slice of bread. Drape one slice of beef tenderloin carpaccio on each slice. Garnish with a sprinkle of course black sea salt on two corners, a grape tomato halve on the third and a rosemary spring in the center.
  • Enjoy your Beef and Garlic Carpaccio Crostinis!
