Salt Crusted Beef Tenderloin

Salt Crusted Beef Tenderloin

There is nothing like salt crusted beef tenderloin. Beef tenderloin in general makes my mouth water as long as it’s cooked the right way (a.k.a medium rare).  Salt is a must because it locks in the juices to give it the melt in your mouth taste. My husband and I came up with this simple way of making beef tenderloin on the grill and it is perfect every time. 

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time – 30-45 minutes (depending on size)


Beef tenderloin (size depends on how many people you are serving)

Kosher or Sea salt

FRESH cracked pepper

Garlic Salt

Garlic Powder

Preparing Salt Crusted Beef Tenderloin:

Preheat the grill to high. Lightly brush the tenderloin with olive oil. Coat generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with garlic powder and garlic salt. Put the tenderloin on just long enough to sear all sides.
