Beef tenderloin makes for a delicious, memorable meal. It’s one of those meals that my entire family looks forward to eating all day long. It’s so simple and easy to prepare, but delivers big flavor that is sure to impress your family and guests. They’ll swear you’ve slaved away over it for hours.
If your grocer doesn’t keep beef tenderloin in stock, call ahead and ask your butcher to order one for you. Pick it up the day before you plan to serve it. You’ll want to marinade it up to one hour before cooking or up to overnight the night before. The longer the better for lots of flavor.
During the warmer months, we’ll prepare our beef tenderloin on the grill or on our Big Green Egg for a delicious smokey flavor. During cooler months, simply place your beef tenderloin in a large roasting pan, cover with aluminum foil, and cook until the beef tenderloin reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. We utilize a digital thermometer that you can program the desired temperature. When the meat reaches the desired temperature, the thermometer alarms, alerting you that your meat is ready.
