Step by step

  • Step 1

    Prepare the garlic bread: Place the butter, garlic, and cilantro in a mixing bowl and whisk to mix. Lightly butter each bread slice with the garlic butter and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Make the chipotle sauce: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chipotle, and adobo sauce and stir to blend.

  • Step 3

    Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. Ideally, you’ll be working on a wood-burning grill. Brush and oil the grill grate.

  • Step 4

    Grill the poblanos until charred on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool. Scrape off any burnt skin, remove the stems, and cut the chiles in half. Scrape out and discard the seeds.

  • Step 5

    Skewer the onion slices crosswise on skewers. Brush on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the onions until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to the cutting board, let cool, and remove the skewers.

  • Step 6

    Make a lengthwise cut in the tenderloin (do not cut all the way through) and open it like a book. Season the meat, inside and out, with salt and pepper. Spread the inside with half of the chipotle sauce. Lay the strips of poblano end-to-end in the pocket you cut in the meat. Top with grilled onions and slices of provolone. Close the meat around the cheese and vegetables and tie at 2-inch intervals with butcher’s string. Brush the outside of the tenderloin with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.

  • Step 7

    Grill the tenderloin until well-browned on the outside and cooked to taste, 4 to 5 minutes per side, 15 to 20 minutes in all for medium-rare (about 135 degrees). Transfer the beef to a cutting board and let rest for a couple of minutes. Remove the string, then cut the tenderloin crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices.

  • Step 8

    Meanwhile, grill the garlic bread until browned on both sides, about 1 to 2 minutes per side.

  • Step 9

    To serve, spread the garlic bread with the remaining chipotle sauce. Top with grilled beef and serve as an open-faced sandwich.
