Prep Time:
Stand: 20 Minutes
Chill: 8 Hours


  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup coarse-grained smoked salt
  • 1/3 cup smoked black pepper
  • 1 (1 1/4-pound) beef tenderloin, trimmed
  • Toasted baguette slices
  • Pickled Onions


  1. 1. Combine sugar and kosher salt in a small bowl. Combine smoked salt and smoked pepper; rub on beef. Place in a deep pan, and cover with sugar mixture. Chill, uncovered, 2 days, turning beef occasionally.
  2. 2. Remove beef from curing mixture, wiping away all residue. Wrap beef in cheesecloth, and hang above a bowl in the refrigerator (to drain away liquid) 8 hours or overnight.
  3. 3. Cut beef into very thin slices. Top baguette slices with beef and Pickled Onions.
