This is the absolute best marinade for beef tenderloin. We've used it for our Christmas Eve dinner the past several years and it never disappoints. We use it for tailgating, too - just put the meat and marinade in a ziplock bag and put it in the cooler until time to grill at the game. It's also great for other meats - I've used it on quail with outstanding results. We've tried other tenderloin recipes, but always come back to this one.
This is one of the best recipes ever - easy to prepare, to cook and serve - your guests will love it and what an impression you will make. I made it with roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus with hollandaise. I am not a big beef eater but this is something I crave. Outstanding.
