Add robust flavor to beef tenderloin by sprinkling it with a coffee and ground black pepper rub. Thin slices of beef pair well with a creamy mustard sauce.
Try topping these hearty appetizers with watercress instead of the thyme.
Chilling the beef before slicing it makes it easier to cut. If you're short on time, place the beef in the freezer for 1 hour instead of refrigerating it for 4 hours.
