Doug's JA Magic

Doug’s favorite recipe to enjoy is Whole Beef Tenderloin on his rotisserie grill. Best enjoyed with his favorite hearty red wine and good friends!

How to make it:

  1. Trim the whole tenderloin to remove any excess fat. Cover the tenderloin with a light coating of Olive oil, then rub with “Black and White” seasoning rub from the Butcher’s Block in Bloomington, Indiana (also a great place to get your tenderloin). It is a combination of salt, pepper, celery salt and some other special seasoning.
  2. Place on your rotisserie for 45 minutes to an hour depending on size. Remove when the internal temperature reaches approximately 130 degrees. It will continue to finish cooking when allowed to rest prior to carving.

Doug loves going out to Tinker Street in Indianapolis, Indiana. It’s a “Great place for local flavors for every season! Menu is always changing, but always delicious!”
