Sesame Ginger Beef Tenderloin

  • 3/4 cup Knorr Sesame Ginger marinade
  • 1 tbsp finely minced fresh ginger
  • 1 grated zest of an orange, plus juice 1
  • 1/2 tsp dried chili flakes or asian chili sauce (optional)
  • 2 fresh oranges, quartered
  • 1 large mango, peeled and cut in 6th's
  • 1 1/2 lb whole piece of beef tenderloin
  • 1 red onion, peeled and quartered length-wise


  1. In a shallow dish, whisk marinade, ginger, zest, juice and chili; reserve 1/4 cup.
  2. Add tenderloin, orange quarters, onion, and mango pieces. Marinate 1 hour.
  3. Grill tenderloin over medium heat, or about 4 inches from heat source. Turning several times and basting with reserved marinade mixture, cook approximately 20 - 25 minutes.
  4. Add onion, oranges and mango pieces to the grill. Cook about 5 - 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  5. Remove beef, fruit and onion to a platter and tent with foil for 5 - 10 minutes. This will produce a medium rare tenderloin.
  6. Serving Suggestion: Slice beef and serve with grilled mango and onion, accompanied by basmati rice. Squeeze the juice from the grilled oranges over top. Note: Any tender cut of beef (grilling steaks) can be substituted for the tenderloin in this recipe. Adjust cooking times accordingly.
