Chef Way At David Burke's Primehouse, Burke serves three mini beef tenderloin hot dogs, topping each one with a different kind of homemade relish, such as one made with citrus and red onion or another made with wild mushrooms and herbs.

Easy Way Burke grills beef tenderloin, cuts it into long, thick slices about the length and width of a hot dog, then cradles each piece in a soft bun. One summery relish, made with kernels of sweet corn and bits of red onion tossed with cider vinegar, goes on top of all the "dogs."

  1. 1 cup fresh corn kernels (from 2 ears)
  2. 1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  3. 2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
  4. 2 tablespoons finely diced celery
  5. 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 3 tablespoons canola oil
  9. 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  10. 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  11. 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  12. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  13. 1 pound center-cut beef tenderloin in one piece
  14. 1 baguette, halved lengthwise and cut into four 6-inch pieces
  1. Light a grill. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the corn kernels and cook them for 2 minutes. Drain and cool the corn under running water. Shake off the excess water and pat the kernels dry. Transfer the corn to a bowl and add the bell pepper, onion and celery.
  2. In the same saucepan, heat the cider vinegar with the sugar and a generous pinch of salt and pepper just until the sugar dissolves. Pour the vinegar over the vegetables and refrigerate the corn relish until chilled.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir the canola oil with the garlic, paprika, dry mustard and cayenne and season generously with salt and pepper. Using a very sharp knife, quarter the tenderloin lengthwise, forming 4 long "dogs." Rub the tenderloin dogs with half of the seasoned oil. Brush the cut sides of the baguette with the remaining seasoned oil.
  4. Grill the dogs over high heat, turning them occasionally, until they are lightly charred outside, about 10 minutes for medium-rare meat. Grill the baguette, oiled-side down, until lightly toasted. Serve the beef tenderloin dogs on the toasted baguette, topped generously with the corn relish.

Suggested Pairing

Firm, blackberry-rich Syrah.
