For Labor Day Weekend Dom and Mark smoked Big ‘Ol Beef Loins from Colorado Craft Beef for the crew. This is the cut of meat that you get filet mignon from! We wanted to make sure everyone at Grilla got a fantastic lunch before we sent them on an extended weekend! Watch the video to see how we made delicious Rosemary Garlic Butter Steaks for everyone at our Holland Showroom!
Side Dish Recommendations for Rosemary Beef Tenderloins
It’s tempting to just dive in and feast on slices of your fresh-from-the-grill rosemary garlic roast beef. But you probably want something to accompany the meal.
If you’re looking for side dishes that go well with this sensational meat, you can’t go wrong with any type of potato, whether it’s baked, mashed or roasted. Plenty of rosemary garlic butter sauce and a dollop of sour cream and chives on top will make your potatoes pop.
Another favorite beef tenderloin pairing is anything from the produce department, nearest farmers market stand or your home garden. Sear up some veggie kebabs made with chunks of zucchini, onions, whole mushrooms and peppers. You can also add in a little pineapple for a dash of exotic sweetness and flavor.
Finally, offer up some crusty bread or rolls. Bonus points if you make your bread by hand on the same day.
How Rosemary Seals This Meal
Your beef tenderloin is the star of this show but don’t underestimate rosemary as a supporting player, though. Rosemary and beef have a long history together because rosemary holds up well against beef’s strong presence.
What makes rosemary the ideal seasoning to set off your grilled meat? First, it’s robust and earthy. You might be reminded of balsam Christmas trees or even lavender undertones after taking a whiff of a rosemary sprig.
Second, rosemary doesn’t fade into the background. It reminds you that it’s here to stay, which is perfect when you’re finishing off your garlic beef with a buttery bath.
Do you want to include other herbs as part of your final product? Thyme and oregano make nice partners for rosemary.
Superb Substitutes for Beef Tenderloin
Beef tenderloins aren’t difficult to find, no matter what part of the country you live in. Still, you might need a last-minute sub.
Some good cuts to give you basic beef tenderloin overtones in this recipe include ribeye roasts and sirloin butts. Just make sure the cut of meat you choose isn’t too fatty, or ask your butcher to trim a good portion of the fat.
If you’re leaning away from red meat this week, a port tenderloin can steal the show as well. It’ll be a little less fleshy, and you’ll have to cook the pork meat thoroughly to stay within food safety guidelines. Just make sure not to overcook your pork, so it stays tender.
