There is nothing better than a grilled whole beef tenderloin with Garlic and Blue Cheese. Fancy enough for a special occasion but simple and easy for every day. This is one of my favorite flavor pairings. The tangy blue cheese with the sharp garlic served over a buttery filet mignon. My mouth is watering just thinking about the flavors. 

My husband doesn't love blue cheese so I use a sharp Italian cheese like asiago for his filet. You can experiment with different cheese and spice and herb combinations.

Ingredients

  • 5 Lbs Beef Tenderloin Six 5 oz Filets
  • 2 T salted butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic roasted* and crushed
  • 5 oz Bleu Cheese Crumbles
  • Salt Pepper, to taste
  • 1 t Fresh Rosemary Chopped

Instructions

  1. Heat grill heated to 450 degrees
  2. Season beef tenderloin with salt and pepper, to taste

  3. Let sit covered while you whip up the blue cheese topping
  4. Melt butter.
  5. Remove from heat and add blue cheese, fresh rosemary, and roasted garlic and mix to thoroughly combine.
  6. Grill beef tenderloin to 5 degrees less than the desired temperature. (135 degrees for medium rare and 145 degrees for medium. The USDA suggests cooking to 145 degrees. Remove steaks when the meat thermometer reads 5 degrees less than the desired temperature.)

  7. Top with Roasted Garlic Blue Cheese Sauce and cook for 1 minute.

  8. Remove from grill and serve.

Recipe Notes

*To roast garlic:

Drizzle olive oil over a head of garlic, top removed and roast in a 450-degree oven until soft. You can also do this on the grill, just wrap the garlic in heavy duty foil and cook directly on grates. If you only need a couple of cloves you can drizzle cloves with olive oil and cook just what you need.

My husband doesn't love blue cheese so I use a sharp Italian cheese like asiago for his filet. You can experiment with different cheese and spice and herb combinations.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.

Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
