Slice a pocket down one side of the tenderloin. Fill with savory bread dressing, or duxcelles, or a crab-meat stuffing.
Or, have you ever made tournedos. Very tasty. The tournado is a small, round steak cut from the end of the tenderloin. It is usually pan-fried in a little oil, and often wrapped around the outside in bacon or cull fat. When It is seasoned with salt & pepper, and often topped with foie gras, or truffles. But for my paycheck, that would be chicken liver pate', or drilled portabelo mushroom caps.
Another great way to serve steak is to top it with a compound butter, or something like Sauce Bercy. Then, there's always Steak Diane. All of these are found easily by doing a Google search.
Tip, cheap steak cuts, such as round steak, skirt steak, and such, is great when grilled to no more than rare, then diced, and pan fried with small dice onion, orange, red, and yellow bell pepper, a chopped jalapeno, Cilantro, and lime juice to make Carne Asada filling for tacos, and burritos. It's one of my favorite ways to use inexpensive steak cuts.
Hope that helps.
