Beef Tenderloin With Artichoke Puree on Rye Toasts

“A sophisticated appetizer I adapted from Bon Apetit. The original recipe called for 2 8-ounce tenderloin steaks, cooked and thinly sliced. I cheated and used deli roast beef to simplify things. The leftover puree makes a nice sauce for dipping vegetables or chips, and it makes a great sandwich spread!”
