The beef tenderloin is one of the best cut you can spend at your local butcher. Having said that, it certainly is not a cheap buy if you were to buy one piece. The reason why it is expensive is that it is the most tender cut you can get and it has great taste without requiring too much marinating or cooking.
This is the kind of meat you want to serve in a gourmet steak BBQ session. But be prepared to spend big bucks and know some tips on how to grill it properly.
Here in this article, we will tell you a little more about grilled beef tenderloin as well as some recipes that will go well with it too.
But first, let us learn how to prepare your beef tenderloin…
How To Prepare Your Beef Tenderloin
#1 Trim Your Tenderloin
When you have purchased your beef tenderloin from your local butcher, the first thing you need to do is to trim it.
What?? Yes. trim off the silvery skin off it which is actually the fat and membrane that layers it. You can either choose to remove it using your hands or a knife. This silvery part actually runs down on one side of the tenderloin only.
You might be removing quite a bit from your tenderloin cut but that is to be expected, and yes you will feel the pain of throwing a lot away of fat away. Still, if there is any fat hanging, remove it completely.
If you prefer to get a tenderloin cut that has less fat, by all means go for it. If you feel like you are not sure about what I’m talking about here, take a look at the video below to watch the steps of trimming your beef tenderloin cut.
