Grilled Beef Tenderloin and Garlic Feast

Difficulty Level:Easy-Prep Time:20 Minutes-Cook Time: 45 minutes-Resting Time:10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes-Serving size: 4
4 heads garlic
8 tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 tenderloin steaks, 1 to 1½” thick
2 pounds red bliss potatoes
6 cloves peeled garlic
4 tablespoons butter
¾ to 1 cup milk
salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Prepare the grill for cooking with medium to high heat.
2. Slice the tops off each of the heads of garlic to expose the cloves.
3. Place each garlic head on a separate piece of foil and drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on each head.
4. Use the foil to make loose pouches around the garlic.
5. Transfer the garlic pouches to the grill over medium to high heat and cover the grill.
6. Roast the garlic for 30 to 35 minutes.
7. For the steaks, rub each with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon Kansas City Steak Rub and set aside.
8. While the garlic is roasting, boil the red potatoes (unpeeled) with 6 cloves of peeled garlic for 25 minutes.
