*Why is my beef tenderloin tough?
Beef tenderloin is one of the tenderest cuts of beef and, in general, should be pretty easy to grill. But...it can happen to the best of us, right? Tenderloin is a pretty lean cut of meat and you shouldn't grill it willy-nilly and hope for the best. Keep an eye on the temperature and the time it's been on the grill and you should be just fine. Rare to barely medium is the most common way to go. Cook it past 145°F and you might just end up with a slab of beef-flavored charcoal. Our preferred temp is about 125°F.
