Why Beef Tenderloin Is Great for the Grill

A boneless beef cut that cooks to a juicy, tender texture is called tenderloin. It’s ideal to cook on the grill because the high heat sears the tenderloin’s exterior, leaving it browned and flavorful.

Cooking the beef outside prevents smoke from entering your kitchen during the searing process, as a lot of smoke can develop. Additionally, if you’re feeding a large group of people, a grill can accommodate a larger roast. Additionally, you can prepare other meals in your oven and stovetop by using the grill.

What is the difference between beef tenderloin and filet mignon?

The term for the large cut of beef before it is sliced into steak is beef tenderloin. After being cut into steaks, it is referred to as “filet mignon” in French. Put differently, the meat is identical; one is sliced, while the other is not!

  • The marinade is rich, savory, sweet, and umami thanks to the addition of Dijon mustard, molasses, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • A straightforward spice mixture of ground black pepper, kosher salt, and garlic powder forms a dry rub for the meat.
  • The glaze ingredients are Dijon mustard, bourbon, and light brown sugar, which you will brush onto the tenderloin in the last few minutes it is cooked on the grill.
