I know, I know….. I finished grilling season a month ago…..
But we’ve had some lovely weather and mon mari had this whole bag of charcoal and these steaks looked really good.
What can I say…. I succumbed to the moment.
I will have to admit that mon mari, while very happy that he got to play with fire one more time this fall, was not at all happy with my choice of meat.
Normally, if we want to do steak on the grill we go to a specific butcher and pay a rather significant price to get good beef.
I bought these at the supermarket.
Beef from the supermarket is normally only edible if I do it in the slow cooker for a week.
I promised to make a marinade that would transform them into the perfect steak.
I have no idea if my marinade was actually that transformative or if I got really lucky choosing the steaks but they were really good.
Considering the weather where some of you live, you could also broil these or simply pan-fry them
Total time: 20 minutes plus 6 – 10 hours marinating time
- 2 – 6oz (180gr) beef tenderloin steaks (fillet mignon)
- 3 tbs ketchup
- 3 tbs red wine
- 3 tbs red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Mix all ingredients except steaks.
- Put steaks and marinade in a food bag and seal well.
- Massage marinade into both sides of meat and refrigerate.
- Turn beef a few time during the marinating time
- When read, remove from marinade and grill on barbecue over high heat 3 – 5 minutes a side.
- Remove from heat and serve.
I’m busy playing – so here’s my favorite of the year’s morning glories for you to gaze at while you wonder where I am wandering…..
Yes, I’m taking photos….
