Herbed Beef Tenderloin Recipe

Cooking on the grill has always been one of my favorite hobbies. This recipe is a popular choice for my family's Sunday dinners or our special birthday dinners. I like to serve tenderloin with baked potatoes and homegrown vegetables.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 30 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon each dried basil, thyme and rosemary, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Place tenderloin in a large resealable heavy-duty plastic bag. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over meat. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect medium-hot heat, using a drip pan. Drain and discard marinade from beef. Place beef over the direct heat. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 10-15 minutes or until beef is browned, turning frequently. Move beef to indirect side of the grill. Cover and grill for 20-25 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 12 servings.
