Summertime is a great time for making your favorite grilled meals on the barbecue and there isn’t much that tastes better than a grilled filet of beef tenderloin and roasted fresh vegetables. Tim and I both love filet so we make this a lot!
We like to serve it with Roasted Mushrooms, Green Beans and Onions with Garlic Parmesan Butter.
The following recipe is simple and flavorful and uses a dry rub created by our friend Steve. A dry rub is a must for great grilling on the barbecue because it gives fuller flavor to any meat. I prefer to use organic grass fed beef but any USDA prime or choice cut of beef is good.
Move the tenderloin to the side of the grill and let it cook for 15-20 minutes for medium-rare. (Check the meat for desired temp with a meat thermometer. See our Grilling Guide for safe beef temperatures.) If cooking a larger tenderloin, cook 20-25 minutes per pound for medium.
Package the rub in a nice container and give it to the host and/or hostess at the next barbecue you attend. A Gr8 Gift Idea!
