How to Make Italian Beef Sandwiches

I love Italian beef sandwiches! However to get a decent one I have to drive about 30 minutes and they are a rarity in my life. I had some leftover beef tenderloin I smoked a few days ago and decided to try making my own. I should have done this years ago. They turned out fantastic.

How to Smoke a Beef Tenderloin

Smoking a beef tenderloin is simple and one of the greatest ways to prepare this choice cut of meat. Done properly, the tenderloin will be perfectly cooked from crust to crust.

How to make Posole

So this weekend I had a 2 lb pork tenderloin staring at me from the fridge. I was having some friends over for dinner and it had started to really cool off in the early afternoon. So I decided to make Posole out of it. I was feeling a bit lazy so about 70% of the ingredients are not in the pictures. This great soup is easy to make and super delicious.
