“I was having a party of 22 and I served this tenderloin. I come back to this recipe over and over again because it is so easy to make up and I can marinate the beef up to 3 days in advance. This is one of my favorites recipes to do on the grill for a large group....I hope it will become one of yours!!!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: The recipe calls for Grey Poupon peppercorn mustard. As this mustard is not available where I live -- I give the marinade a few good grinds of my peppercorn mill. (anywhere from 1 tsp to 1T).
  2. Wipe the tenderloin clean with a paper towel. Cut slits into the beef and add the garlic slivers. The amount of garlic used is up to personal preference.
  3. Combine mustard, bourbon, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, olive oil and garlic in a zip lock bag. Add beef and turn to coat both sides. Chill for several hours or overnight. Note: I have marinated the beef up to 3 days.
  4. Preheat grill.
  5. Remove marinade from zip log bag. Reserve marinade. Coat grill with vegetable oil or Pam. Sear beef for 2 minutes on each side. Cover grill and cook 45 - 60 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 150, brushing with reserved marinade occasionally.
  6. Alow beef to sit for 5 - 10 minutes before carving.
  7. The reserved marinate can be made into a sauce by combining it with 1 cup sliced mushrooms in a small heavy saucepan over moderate heat and cook until heated through.
