Perfect - simple is best with filets. No need for meat tenderizer. We just rubbed these with olive oil and minced garlic. If you let the steaks come to room temperature before grilling, you'll get a very tender steak and you don't want to ruin a filet.

I don't like to use meat tenderizer so I subbed seasoning salt and fresh cracked pepper. Simple and good. With tenderloin, you don't have to get fancy -- you want that great flavor of the beef to shine through and this is one way to do just that.

Very simple, very quick and very good. The flavor of the beef is enhanced, not hidden behind a marinade or sauce. We needed to add s+p at the table (which is why I gave this 4 stars), but I did use a light hand with the meat tenderizer.

This was exactly the type of recipe I wanted- something simple that would bring out the flavor of the grilled meat, and not take a lot of time or ingredients. This is a keeper!
