1 (5 pound)
whole beef tenderloin
garlic cloves, minced

Excellent! I used this rub on filets and while simple is best this rub was wonderful. Rosemary and thyme always pair well together and this was no exception. Let your steaks come to room temperature before grilling. We also grilled them with a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary to give them a really nice flavor. This recipe is a definite keeper!
This was ok, we made it with steaks instead of a roast...I am not sure if the cut really makes the difference. My daughter liked it though and she is a picky eater.
great recipe BUT watch the servings. I had 6 hungry adults, served taters and vegetables and was barely enough. I would go 8 max.
I cut the recipe back since there were only two of us. I used the small end of the tenderloin which was about 1.2 lbs. I followed the recipe exactly except of course the amount of time to cook. I seared it on high for a few minutes on each side, turned down to medium and then moved to the other side of the grill. Cooked it for 10 - 12 minutes and it was perfect! Was very tender, flavorful and tasty. I put the rub on earlier in the day and left it on a dish in the fridge covered with saran. I took it out about an hour before cooking. I'll definitely make this again.
Perfection. My husband is always worried about barbecuing for guests, but this was phenomenal. I put the rub on the meat the night before and let it sit almost 24 hours. The beef was so tender and delicious. Definitely a recipe we'll keep!
Made this with filets instead of a whole beef tenderloin. This was lovely and I have been thinking about it all week. In fact, I made it again for friends a couple of nights ago.
Thanks for this awesome recipe. So far, I have made it twice. The first time was for Mother's Day. The wet rub is fabulous and came out wonderfully. The really great thing about this recipe is the fool-proof grilling directions. Follow them precisely and you will not be disappointed. If you need additional help with prepping your tenderloin, the Joy of Cooking has great detailed instructions. Also, if you are using a tenderloin in the 3.5LB range, you can half the recipe for the wet rub and there is still plenty. Thanks for the great recipe. It came out perfect and rosy with a yummy, peppery grilled crust on the outside.
This recipe is absolutely killer. The herbs really make it pop without drowning out the flavour of the beef. This is one of the few recipes that I make pretty much exactly as written. Make sure you start with a good tenderloin and that you clean it well. Use a meat thermometer and don't overcook. It couldn't be simpler. The second time I made this I considered using fresh thyme from my garden, but hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. We usually make more than we need. Nothing like filet and eggs the next morning followed by steak panini's for lunch. Highly recommended!
