Allergic Living Magazine [1]Serves 4-6

Free of: Gluten and Top 8 allergens.



  1. Pre-heat grill on high. Rub beef with 3 tbsp of olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Coat well and set aside 10-15 minutes.
  2. Grill tenderloin until seared on all sides. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking with the lid closed, 12-15 minutes for medium-rare. (Internal temperature of 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium taken with a probe thermometer.) Remove beef from the grill, tent with foil and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Arrange watercress on a serving platter. Thinly slice beef and arrange on top of watercress.
  4. Drizzle generously with vinaigrette (see recipe below) and serve.

*Note: Budget-friendly flank steak also works ­well. Follow the same method, but adjust cooking time. Grill over high heat 4-6 minutes per side for medium rare.
