Grilled Marinated Beef Tenderloin

Now that the weather is finally cooperating, it's time to fire up the grill with this recipe from Jodi.

  • 1 5-lb. beef tenderloin or cut of beef of your choice (flank steak or London broil)


  • 11/4 Cups port wine (or other sweet wine or 1/2 Cup red wine vinegar + 1/2 Cup water plus 1/4 Cup sugar)
  • 1/2 Cup olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup fresh lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
  • 1/4 Cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. CAYENNE PEPPER
  • 1 tsp. THYME
  • 4 cloves minced garlic (or 1 tsp. PENZEYS MINCED GARLIC)

Rinse the meat and pat dry. Place in a shallow dish. In a bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and mix well. Reserve 1 cup of the marinade separately for basting/sauce making. Pour the remaining marinade over the beef, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least a few hours.

Remove from the marinade. Grill over medium heat and baste with 1/4 cup reserved marinade as needed. Grill to your desired level of doneness. Our 5-lb. tenderloin done to medium-rare took about 25 minutes. Put the other 3/4 cup reserved marinade in a small pan and boil until reduced by half. Serve with the tenderloin.

Prep. time: 10 minutes plus marinade time.
Cooking time: 25-40 minutes or so, depending on thickness, heat of grill and desired level of doneness.
Serves: 12-14
