When I decided to make this recipe, I called my buddy Brad at the Butcher Block in Southaven MS. He trimmed up and sent me a beautiful cut of meat that I’ll be using for this dish. I’m cooking it whole with just a few complementary ingredients to let the real taste of the meat shine through.
Beef Tenderloin is considered one of the best cuts of meat, and with good reason. Cook it right and it’s tender, juicy, and full of flavor. This recipe is something that anyone can make, because it’s easy and doesn’t take that long to cook. It’s a great dish to impress friends, co-workers, or neighbors the next time you have them over to grill out.
I chose ingredients and spices that would add to and compliment the tenderloin’s flavor without overpowering it or taking away from the meaty taste.
There’s a step-by-step walkthrough of making this dish in the video and recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here’s a quick overview of how I did it.
The first slice into the beef showed me pure awesomeness. The middle was a perfect medium-rare, and I could see the juiciness of the flavors in the meat. I dipped a piece into the creamy horseradish sauce and got me a bite. It was a tender, juicy, flavorful bite of beef heaven! The peppery note paired with the creaminess of the horseradish blended with the flavor from Royal Oak Charcoal and the seasonings created a mouthwatering earthquake from the first bite. This tenderloin recipe is absolutely incredible.
Typically 1-2 pieces will feed most appetites when you pair them with some mashed potatoes and asparagus.
Place the leftovers in a ziplock bag or airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can heat them up and use them on a sandwich, in tacos, stir fry, or as a base for chili or soup.
