Whole beef tenderloin

Ant suggestions for a dry rub for a whole beef tenderloin


  • Probably just want the flavor of a quality cut like that.  I'd go naked or with some DP cow lick.

    Just salt and pepper for tenderloin here.  +! with @Crispix49 to let the flavor of the meat be the star.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

  • I like to season my beef tenderloin simply.  Just salt and pepper, maybe some garlic.  But while it is one of the most tender cuts of beef, it can lack the flavor of other cuts so I like to serve it with a sauce on the side.

    Google Southern Living's peppered beef tenderloin with port sauce or something like that.  That is a good one done indirect on the Egg.

    Thanks so much. One other question. Direct or with plate setter.
  • I cook mine direct as I like to get a good sear on mine. Also do salt, pepper and a little garlic. A good sauce if you want is a port wine reduction with mushrooms. I have also served it with Tiger Sauce and got great reviews.

    Roast indirect at 250 till the internal temp is 120. Takeoff egg, raise temp to 500 and remove plate setter and sear all sides. Did one last weekend. It was awesome. Used only salt and pepper.
