Marinated Beef Tenderloin
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 recipes, looking for a meat-and-potato-man kind of recipe – when I saw it. Marinated. Beef. Tenderloin. Have three words said together ever sounded so delicious?
I glanced through the ingredients. I didn’t have exactly what the recipe called for, so some adjustments would have to be made – but not enough to call off dinner!
Beef – it’s what’s for dinner!
Imagine, for a moment, the sound of a sizzling steak. The juices snapping and popping and delicious smells filling the kitchen. The guys crowded around the oven, salivating in anticipation. It does a cook’s heart good to know their food is anticipated. Plus, they chalk up points for dessert. 🙂
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!
You know. . . you could patent a candle that smelled like this. 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 that would be circling your house like vultures.
Tastes so delicious
And the taste? Yum. Yum. Double yum. (You’re licking your lips, aren’t you? Heehee.) Okay, I’ll be nice now and share the recipe.
Marinated Beef Tenderloin
This Marinated Beef Tenderloin is sure to please your meat and potato kind of guy!
- 6 lb beef tenderloin (thawed)
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup Bragg's Liquid Aminos
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce ((optional – read the label carefully – may contain sugar))
Combine the marinade ingredients. Lay beef tenderloin in a shallow baking pan and pour the marinade 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.
Option 1: To broil in the stove, place tenderloins in a shallow baking pan and reserve the leftover marinade. Place pan under broiler and brown both sides. Turn off broiler and turn oven to 325. Bake 1 1/2 hrs. or until meat thermometer is 140 degrees F. (Cooking time will vary depending on how thick the meat is. Watch thinner cuts of meat or they will become overdone.)
Option 2: To grill, heat your grill and cook meat until the desired doneness. Reserve the leftover marinade.
When the meat is nearly done, heat reserved marinade to a boil. Slice tenderloins and pour marinade over top.
