Horsey Sauce Directions:

Serve on the side with Grilled Tenderloin, Steaks or Prime Rib

Tenderloin Preparation Directions:

Remove from the cryo-vac package, pat dry with paper towel and place onto a cutting board
Carefully separate the layer of silverskin from the top of the tenderloin and down into the front chain
Remove the chain by cutting along the barrel of the tenderloin and into the head of the tenderloin
Next trim off the second layer of silverskin being careful not to remove any of the meat
Next flip the tenderloin over and trim off any of the “feathers” or connective tissue
Next lightly oil with the Canolive oil
Now season as light or as heavy as you prefer, on all sides with a 50/50 blend of Rub-A-Dub and Island Boys Coffee Rub.
Allow the rub to sit on the tenderloin for 20 minutes while you prepare the weber for direct cooking

Preparation Directions:

Wash all tools prior to use
Clean and sanitize all cutting boards and prep surfaces prior to use
Read all manufacturer’s instructions before using grills, starters and any cooking tools
Heat Weber grill to 500˚ F
Place the tenderloin over the heat/flame and sear for 5-7 minutes on all sides
Once all sides are seared move the tenderloin to the warming rack and insert the weber Connect Probe
In the weber connect App, set the target doneness temp to your desired doneness level
Close the lid and cook at 500˚ F degrees until the tenderloin reaches temp
*** You can move the tenderloin around the grill as needed to get more or less crust/char/sear
Remove from the Weber at doneness to allow for resting and carry over.
CHEF TIP:  I remove my tenderloin about 5-7 degrees before my desired temp, this allows carry over and resting
Using tongs and heat proof gloves, remove pan from the grill and bring into the kitchen.  Allow to rest for 2-3 minutes and devour.
