Beef Tenderloin & Veggie Wraps

Discussion in 'Grilling Beef' started by smokinvegasbaby, Jun 21, 2016.

  1. After tasting and eating ribs all last week.......I wanted something different for dinner today.  So I rummaged through my freezer and found some Beef Tenderloins pieces I was going to make Beef Kebabs with them a couple of weeks ago but, never got around to making my kebabs ;o( So today, I made one of my Jerry's favorite dinners....Beef Tenderloin & Veggie Wraps and they were really good...I made more than I could eat for dinner today.  I will have the leftovers for breakfast in the morning with eggs and a glass of orange juice!


    For the Marinade

    1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    3 cloves garlic, minced.  I used roasted garlic because that's what I had in my fridge - you can use fresh garlic if you prefer

    1 teaspoon sesame oil

    1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

    1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce

    I added all the ingredients in a glass measuring bowl and whisked together until well combined. Set aside.

    Preparing the beef

    I started off with about 1 1/2 lb. beef tenderloin pieces.  You can make this recipe with sirloin or top round steak if you prefer.


    I placed the beef tenderloin in a plastic bag and pounded it out super thin - about a 1/4 " thick



    After I pounded out all of my beef tenderloin pieces, I wrapped with plastic wrap and placed in the fridge while I prepared my veggies

    The Veggies

    1 zucchini, sliced thin and cut small

    1 yellow squash, sliced thin and cut small

    1 large carrot, sliced thin and cut small

    2 green onions, sliced thin and cut small

    **NOTE - you can use any kind of veggies you like.  The veggies I used was what I had in my fridge!

    I sliced up my veggies super thin and cut each piece small according to the size of my tenderloins.  I lined up all the veggies and cut again to make sure they were all the same length. 


     After I trimmed all my veggies, I put the trimmings (and leftover veggies) in a small sauce pan. I added a little olive oil, pinch of Aleppo Pepper flakes and a pinch of kosher salt - will sauté and serve as a savory bed of veggies.


    Preparing the Beef Tenderloin Wraps

    I removed my tenderloins from the fridge.  I brushed 6 pieces with the marinade on ONE side


    I had 5 more Beef Tenderloin Wraps leftover - I will have those for dinner tomorrow.  I DID NOT brush them with the marinade.  I will do that tomorrow before I grill them.....don't want to over marinade my beef tenderloin.


    I added my veggies on top like this


    Then I rolled up tightly and secured my tenderloin wraps with a toothpick.  I continued until I wrapped all of my Beef Tenderloin & Veggies Wraps


    I brushed another layer of the marinade all over (6) tenderloin wraps - now they are ready for the grill


    I placed my beef tenderloin wraps in a preheated grill - over medium high heat.  I grilled on one side for about 2 minutes.  After 2 minutes, I rolled on the other side and cook for 1-2 minutes.  That little piece in the front (with no veggies) is for my Sophie (the beagle)...she is such a pampered pooch!



    If you like yours rare or medium rare - just cook for less time.

    My finished meal - Grilled Beef Tenderloin & Veggie Wraps on a bed of Sautéed Veggies - my Jerry's favorite!  Happy Belated Father's Day to all you "Smoking" fathers on SMF!  Be Blessed and Keep on Smoking!  Josie
