Chef's Notes

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.)
