Let me sum it up for you: Once upon a time there was a man who loved meat and potatoes. He grew up in the country and that’s how his momma raised him. This is the man I married.So, one day I’m flipping through my recipes, looking for such a recipe when I saw – it.
Marinated. Beef. Tenderloin. Have three words thrown together ever sounded so delicious?
I glanced through the ingredients. As usual, I didn’t have exactly what the recipe called for, so some adjustments would have to be made. Not enough to call off our date with the beef though! I decided on beef round steak because I didn’t have tenderloin and an eight mile trip to town didn’t make it to my ‘to do’ list.
Imagine, for a moment, the sound of sizzling steak. The juices snapping and popping and delicious smells filling the kitchen. The guys crowd around the oven, salivating in anticipation. It does a cook’s heart good to know their food is anticipated. (They may have even chalked up points for dessert. Shhh.)
I saved the marinade they’d been splashing in (the steaks, not the guys) and heated it on the stove. Wow. My kitchen smelled great. Maybe I could patent a candle. You could light it and a delicious aroma. . .no, delete that thought. Can you imagine how crazy the neighborhood dogs would go?! Not to mention the other meat and potato guys circling your house like vultures.
Okay, back to the recipe. After the steaks were browned and cooked thoroughly, I sliced them up and poured on the marinade.
Yum. Yum. Double yum. (You’re licking your lips, aren’t you? Heehee.)
I’ll be nice now and share the recipe. This was adapted from a recipe shared on the GFCFrecipes yahoo group.
Marinated Beef Tenderloin (casein-free, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, anti-candida, low-carb)
1 c. beef broth
1/2 c. soy sauce (Coconut Secret’s Coconut Aminos are soy-free and gluten-free)
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. water
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 t. thyme
1 t. pepper
1 t. Tabasco sauce (optional) (read label carefully – may contain sugar)
6 lb. beef tenderloin
1. Lay beef tenderloin in a shallow baking pan. Combine broth, soy sauce, olive oil, water, crushed garlic, thyme, pepper, and Tabasco sauce and pour over beef. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours or overnight. Turn once so that both sides get a chance to soak it in.
2. Preheat oven to 325.
4. When meat is nearly done, heat reserved marinade to a boil.
5. Slice tenderloins and pour marinade over top.
6. Scoop some corn and potatoes on the plate and you’ve got a meal to make your meat and potato guy one happy camper!
