  • Car Wash Mike, Man they look good! Makes me hungry, thats what we had Saturday night. I buy a whole loin from my butcher, then he cuts them for me. I marinated the ones I did Saturday and then forgot to put the seasoning on before I Egged them, must have been the beer! Enjoy![p]Hugh, "Sitting on The Dock of The Woods" Drueling! You know what I mean.

    Dock of The Woods, Speaking of the whole loin. A friend of mine and myself have been working on a great recipe for the whole beef tenderloin. Basically, we cook the loin to rare, cut a pocket in the middle and fill the pocket up with a whiskey, butter, garlic mixture. Cut portabella mushrooms in 1/4 inch strips and lay on top of the open pocket. Cook to medium rare, let sit for 10 minutes, while the grilled shrimp is cooking then serve.
    Everything is great.

  • Car Wash Mike, You have done it now! Boy you flung a craving on me! When you refine that recipe put me on the list, I want a copy. Problem is you can't experiment to often with $60 whole beef tenderloins. Like I said put me on that list! Sounds really good![p]Hugh, "Sitting on The Dock of The Woods" with a big craving!

  • Car Wash Mike, did you do 2 minutes on each side @ 700, followed by 20 minutes rest, followed by 4 minutes of dwelling on each side @ 400? Or did you use a different technique? Thx.

    It was closer to 2 1/2 - 3 miuntes on each side (when you are cooking at high of a temp, time seems to slip by) and dwell for about 5-7 minutes. The temp got to over 700. I move my steak to side of the grill when dwelling and leave my wifes over the hot lump. The reason for the diffence is my wife likes hers done and I like mine medium rare.
    Thickness is an issue, these were about 1 1/4 inch.

    Dock of The Woods,
    That is expensive. We are carefull when we eggsperiment. We did buy 6 whole beef tenderloins at $3.99 lb. I don't want to waste money but that was cheap. Average weight of loins was 6lbs.[p]CWM

    Car Wash Mike,[p]Wow! That IS cheap! Last beef tenderloin I got was $9.99/lb, so was closer to the price Dock of the Woods mentioned. I too would be interested in your recipe.[p]QBabe

  • Can someone explain the term 'dwelling' to me?[p]Thanks!
