Traeger Smoked Beef Tenderloin is more than just a piece of meat on a grill. In less than an hour, it transforms into something truly incredible. This tender and flavorful cut of steak is perfect for those times when you want to feel a little fancy but still have a simple and delicious dinner on the table.
Mastering the Traeger Smoked Beef Tenderloin Recipe
I know, trying out expensive cuts of meat can be intimidating. But fear not! With some cool tools and tricks, you can achieve a perfectly cooked piece of steak that might just be the highlight of your fall and holiday season.
What Makes Beef Tenderloin Special?
Beef tenderloin comes from the same muscle as filet mignon, but it’s not cut into individual steaks. This particular cut of beef experiences very little movement, which keeps it incredibly tender. It’s one of my personal favorites, and if you come across a sale, don’t hesitate to take advantage of it!
Exploring Different Cooking Methods
There are several great ways to cook beef tenderloin. You can roast it in the oven, cook it on the stovetop, grill it, or my personal favorite – smoke it!
Smoking beef adds a deep flavor, beautiful smoke ring, and ensures the perfect tenderness. One helpful tip is to cut the beef tenderloin into large segments, depending on its thickness. This way, you can remove each segment from the grill at different times, ensuring they reach the desired level of doneness.
Serve Your Smoked Beef Tenderloin with Spectacular Sides
Pairing sides with smoked beef tenderloin is a breeze! My go-to recommendation is always the Perfect Grilled Asparagus. It’s quick, easy, and sure to impress. A freshly tossed Greek Salad would also be an excellent choice!
Since the grill is already hot, take advantage of it. Once you remove the beef, crank up the heat for a few minutes and throw on some grilled veggies while the tenderloin rests.
For a more indulgent meal, consider serving Creamy Noodles or Scalloped Potatoes alongside your smoked beef. And if you want to elevate the dish even further, try our Smoked Parmesan Potato Stacks. Homemade Rolls would also take this meal to the next level!
Personally, I find this smoked tenderloin even better than the best prime rib. Both options are perfect for family gatherings or special holiday meals that will leave everyone craving for more.
