This is a recipe I cooked for my birthday. It was my very first tenderloin on the grill. The recipe was VERY easy. And it got rave reviews at the party. I actually scaled the recipe down for just 1 lb of tenderloin, but I'm including the whole recipe here. I got the recipe online from Food & Wine. I believe they used fresh herbs in the original recipe. I didn't have any fresh on hand, but I had a Ton of dried, so I used that and it was still wonderful. I have changed the recipe to reflect my use of dried herbs.

Directions

  1. Fold the thin end of the tenderloin roast under to make the meat an even thickness. Tie the roast at 1-inch intervals and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the garlic, pepper, thyme, marjoram, rosemary and salt. Rub the herb oil all over the roast and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  3. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
  4. Light a grill. Grill the roast directly over moderately high heat, turning often, until nicely charred, about 30 minutes for medium-rare.
  5. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Slice the roast 1/2 inch thick and serve.

What a delightful marinade. It really brought a lot of flavor to the beef, without overpowering its natural taste. It could really make something special even out of a mediocre cut of meat.
