Apple Ale- and Whiskey-Marinated Beef Tenderloin
This easy roast was a huge hit at Christmas dinner. The hands-on prep time is less than 10 minutes--it's the marinating that takes many hours. I've used wine-based marinades before and decided to try apple ale, which is a favorite at our house. We thought it tasted much better than with the wine marinades.
