  • This looks like a relatively easy recipe to make. But, it is all about timing! Getting the heat just so hot--so it doesn't overcook or not cook enough. - 1/6/13

  • Absoulutly a exellent recipe!!!!5 stars,as far as I'm concerned.And I am a very-very picky eater,especially when I cook for myself.I thought it looked like way too much rosemary,because I doubled the recipe(and used fresh)but it was perfect.Not one family member had anything negative to say about it - 8/15/11

  • Delicious recipe..thx. But 8 servings seems like a lot for just 1 lb of beef... also I baked to 145 degrees as we prefer more rare beef. - 1/16/11

  • I prefer cooking tenderloin at higher temperature for less time (475 for 20 min). Otherwise, this rub is very good. - 8/29/10

    It could have been better. My tenderloin was a little bigger and was not nearly done in the allotted time. It really dry on the outside. I would love to try it again. It would do better at a lower temperature and less rosemary. It was really overwhelming. - 5/11/10

  • Our store didn't have tenderloin (?), so I used tri tip instead. Also, I combined all ingredients and rubbed it over the beef, then let it sit for 4 hours before barbecuing. These flavors were excellent on the beef... it's the best beef I've ever had, honestly. - 4/6/08
