Beef Tenderloin to die for !!!


     How lucky am I to have a Hubby that is a Master when it comes to preparing meats !!!  His usual go to is always on the grill, the smoker, or THE BIG GREEN EGG !!!  He first bought that EXPENSIVE EGG when our youngest daughter, Chelsea, was about 8 years old ( shes now 22).  The "incident", as we refer to it,  occurred when I left him in charge of babysitting while she had a friend over.  Not sure how your husband does when he's in charge of babysitting, but before my Sweetheart knew what was happening, he heard a VERY LOUD crash coming from the driveway.  Upon inspection, he witnessed about one MILLION little porcelin green egg shreds and two little girls frozen in fear!!!  Chelsea and her friend decided it would be a good idea to push the BIG GREEN EGG from the garage to the Basket ball hoop in the driveway so they could climb up it and dunk the ball just like her older brothers...... So long thousand bucks ... and no more baby sitting gigs for Dad ... Luckily, all this dish requires is a Cast Iron Skillet ... and we are grateful Chelsea happens to be in Russia for Spring Break right now !!!  ;)



Ingredients:
1 pound Beef Tenderloin
Juice of one Lemon
1 Cup Italian Dressing
1.5 oz of Scotch
EVOO


      Combine all ingredients in ziplock bag to marinate for 24 hours.  Cover bottom of cast iron skillet with EVOO and bring to simmer, then remove meat from bag and sear on each side til light brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.  Finish by roasting in the cast iron skillet in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes for medium rare.  Enjoy the heck outta this!!! It's the best tasting meat I have ever had!!!  Cheers ;)
