Beef Tenderloin Sliders with Horseradish Dijon Cream
If you do not have time to cook your own beef tenderloin, pick it up already cooked from your favorite market or the prepared food area of your local grocery store and have it sliced thick (1/4-inch). Place a slice or two of beef on a “slider” or mini hamburger bun and add the Horseradish Dijon Cream or serve it on the side.

1 cup sour cream or non-fat plain yogurt (preferably Greek-style)
