Maple Onion Glazed Beef Tenderloin

Chef Thomas Horner marinates and bastes grassfed Aussie beef with a maple-onion glaze. The sugars caramelize to make a flavorful crust while the meat grills. Serve this with oil-roasted potatoes on the side.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 20 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 8


    •    Portion size: 6 to 8 oz. beef
    •    Alternate cuts: Strip steak

Fillet Steak:

    •    1 Australian grassfed beef tenderloin
    •    1 bunch fresh thyme leaves, chopped
    •    1 bunch fresh basil leaves, chopped
    •    1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
    •    ½ cup olive oil
    •    ¼ cup maple syrup
    •    Salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl or zip-lock bag, blend the thyme, basil, onion, maple syrup and olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Remove half to a smaller bowl. Add the tenderloin to the remaining half of the mixture and marinate it for 30 minutes. Preheat a grill to MEDIUM heat. Grill the tenderloin, basting it with the reserved onion mixture, for 25 to 30 minutes, turning it 4 or 5 times. Remove the tenderloin from the grill to rest for 10 minutes before carving it into slices.
