This is a very simple, quick, delicious recipe for garlic-stuffed steaks. We use a lot of garlic! Serve with baked potatoes and a green salad.

You MUST love garlic to enjoy these steaks. I would like to recommend making your slits for the garlic on the sides - all around rather than the top and bottom. This also would work well with other cuts of beef - not just tenderloin. Garlic lovers will love these steaks. Read More

I'll stick with marinating next time. I refrigerated mine with the garlice for 8 hours and felt these lacked flavor. Read More

It is hard to stop saying this but you are using some of my favorite ingredients. I think I put garlic in everything. This is mouthwatering. The last time I did these I added a little butter in the holes with the garlic just to make it even juicier. I had throat surgery and the juicier the meat the easier it is to go down....Wxcellent flavor!!!! Read More

This was good and easy. I added a little Fiesta Fajita seasoning and Cavender's Greek seasoning before grilling because we like a lot of flavor. Read More

This was VERY easy to do and very simple/basic. I put in the fridge for 12 hours and it turned out very well. I do think that we like our meat with a little bit more flavor. It was a good basic recipe for us. I will definately use again and play around with more flavors. Thanks for the post. Read More

This is a garlic lovers' dream come true!!! I use this recipe on sirloin steaks also. Although with sirloin steaks I have our butcher cut the sirloins 1 1/2 inches thick!!! With that thickness I then stuff garlic slices about every inch on BOTH sides of the steaks then allow the steaks to set for at least 4 hours and then charcoal broil the steaks. Read More

We loved the steaks grilled this way. We did let the steaks sit for 5 hours to get more of the garlic flavor infused and did not cut the cloves too thin about 5 slivers per clove. Also added blue cheese at the end of grill time as another reviewer suggested and drizzed garlic butter over steaks when they were done can't get too much! Read More

Used minced garlic. Didn't like the appearance. Think it would have been just as good to use garlic powder. Read More
