Grilled Beef Tenderloin Filet
Our Leahy’s Angus Beef Tenderloin Filets are wonderful when grilled, but you need to be careful not to overcook the filets. It can be easy to overcook these prized pieces of meat, and with something so delicate, you don’t want to cook them too long! Never fear, this simple recipe will help you perfectly grill your filets.
Season the filets on all sides with the LGCM Ultimate Steak & Roast Rub, or your favorite steak seasoning. Let sit at room temperature while you heat the grill.
Heat your grill to medium high heat, and set up for direct heat cooking. Once the grill is hot, place the tenderloin filets directly over the heat, and cook for approximately 8 minutes. Cook for 2 minutes per side on the long sides, then cook for 1 minute per side on the short sides. This will help ensure even cooking, and a beautiful sear on all sides.
Take a temperature of the filets while it is on the grill. We recommend removing the filets at approximately 135ºF for medium-rare, or 140ºF for medium. We do not recommend cooking beyond medium. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving and enjoy.
