Haven't gotten around to it yet! Been busy and didn't make time to do it yet, as the meat is now in the freezer, so need to unthaw it

Re: Whole beef tenderloin [Re: Rasputin]

I do mine exactly the same as Rasputin, only completely different.

Sometimes I just drizzle olive oil and grind a lot of pepper over the tenderloin. If the meat is really good then you don't need anything else.

Often I will do a marinade:
4 or 5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp salt
1 Tblsp black pepper
1 tsp hot sauce (I love Cholula, Tabasco leaves a lot to be desired)
2 tsp thyme
1 cup red wine - a nice Cabernet is good - don't cook with wine you wouldn't drink
1 cup olive oil
1 or 2 bay leaves

You can marinade in a covered dish or in a suitably sized Ziploc bag. Longer is better - I usually do a day or so.

Pull the meat out of the refrigerator a couple of hours before cooking starts. It will cook more evenly if it starts at room temperature.

I cook mine on a medium-high grill, about 350F, until the internal temperature is around 130F; this could be within 10 or 15 minutes of an hour, depending on the exact temperature of your grill and how windy it is. If you don't have a meat thermometer cook until pressing your finger into the meat feels similar to pressing your finger into the pad of your palm where your thumb attaches to your hand. Either way will get you to medium-rare after the meat sits for 10 minutes. Don't slice until after the meat has rested.

sail fast and eat well,

I mix together:

1 jar Dijon mustard
1 - 2 Tbl minced garlic
1 - 2 Tbl brown sugar
1 - 2 Tbl olive oil

Slather the whole tenderloin with the mixture and roast at 450 until it an instant read thermometer reads 120. Let rest 10 min. before carving. Makes a wonderful crust!

Carol:

You put it in the freexer !

Reminds me of people who only buy fresh swordfish (that costs more than previously frozen swordfish), then they take it home and put it in the freezer ! What a waste.

Oh well,to each their own. But Carol, please just leave the Velveta off of the beef tenderloin !

Hey, I bought a whole one when it was on sale, ate about half and put the rest in the freezer. So shoot me! And, just for YOU, I'll leave the Velveeta off!
