2 teaspoons brown sugar 2 teaspoons garlic powder 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper 4 (6 oz. ea.) beef tenderloin steaks 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Mix brown sugar and seasonings.
Brush steaks with oil. Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of steaks; press gently into steaks to secure.
Grill 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness.
Arlis' Note: Yes, this is a simple and basic recipe, but it never ceases to amaze me how many people just don't know how to grill a steak. So, try this and see how it works for you. The brown sugar is the "special" touch that doesn't make this sweet but gives it a flavor that everyone will be asking why your steaks are so good!
Oh my goodness! I made this for my family tonight using T-Bone Steaks! I increased the brown sugar by 1 Tsp because they were larger steaks, but let me tell you they were great! I would also say that the difficulty should be 0 or 1 because this was really easy!
