Steak and Roasted Tomato Phyllo Appetizers

A few weeks ago, one of the lawyers Randal works with sent him a box of smoked beef tenderloin from Perini Ranch. Since then I have been trying to think of ways to use them, and these little phyllo cups are so good. This is the second time I have made these, the first was on valentine's day but my camera wasn't working then so I couldn't take pictures. This time Randal wanted to change up the original recipe by having roasted red pepper on his instead of the tomato.

1 box of frozen phyllo pastry cups
Cooked beef tenderloin
12 cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 400, cut the tomatoes in half and place cut side up on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the oil and season with salt, pepper and the sugar. Roast for 20 minutes.

Combine the mustard and mayo in a bowl and mix well.

To assemble, spoon the mayo mixture into the phyllo cups, top with the sliced beef, 2 cherry tomato halves and the chives.

Menu Plan Monday

I haven't posted a menu plan for the past 2 weeks, because Randal has been working so late at his new job that I haven't had to cook a single meal since he started there, and when I say he's been working late, I mean really late, one night last week he didn't get home until almost 2am.

Hopefully this week he will be home at a normal time, and if he is this is what's planned

Monday: Apple sage pork chops, mashed potatoes and peas

Tuesday: Tacos

Wednesday: Tilapia with red pepper relish, rice and broccoli

Thursday: Chicken cacciatore

Friday: Eating out
