  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Cook time: 12 Minutes
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes
  • Stand: 5 Minutes


  • 4 (6-oz.) beef tenderloin fillets
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Sprinkle fillets with pepper and salt.

2. Grill, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes.


We cook our tenderloin fillets to medium-rare. If you like your meat cooked medium or well done, increase the grilling or pan-searing time per side. (Cook approximately 1 minute more on each side for medium, 2 minutes more on each side for medium-well, and 3 minutes more on each side for well done.)
