DIRECTIONS

  • Send DH out to set a medium fire in grill.
  • Rinse filets & pat dry. Sprinkle cut sides with garlic & pepper, pressing them gently onto filets.
  • In small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat & add 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce and Cajun seasoning, garlic, onion, green pepper, parsley.
  • Stir & sauté until onion translucent & sauce darkened & slightly thickened. Do not burn garlic - it will become bitter & spoil baste.
  • Add bottle of beer, 2nd tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce & simmer 15 minutes on medium-high heat.
  • Lay filets onto oiled grill grates or place on oiled aluminum foil over grill grates ( I prefer this so I can sop the filets without flareups & ash). Cook 20 minutes (or 1 cold beer) over low-medium heat, raising lid only to baste generously. Done when thickest area of fillet flakes easily. Enjoy!
