Grilled Beef Tenderloin Steaks in Balsamic Marinade

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by swissms

This is a very simple but delicious marinade. The balsamic vinegar gives the grilled steaks a deep, rich color and flavor which nicely compliments the natural flavor of the steaks. Bon Appetit, July 1998.

Fabulous! I always get nervous trying a new marinade on tenderloin steaks, since they are so pricey, but this just sounded so good. I made the marinade exactly as posted, except I added some fresh chopped parsley as well. The steaks actually marinated about 17 hours before I grilled them and they came out wonderfully. The meat was tender and flavorful, and my guests really enjoyed them. Thanks for making my dinner party a success!! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
