1. Sautéed mushrooms
1. While the beef tenderloin is the show-stopping main on the grill, the supporting cast of side dishes is just as important. And these sautéed mushrooms may just steal the show. They’re earthy and full of umami flavor from the mushrooms and soy sauce, with a bit of smokiness from the paprika and a hit of freshness from the parsley. These mushrooms are simple to prepare and can be made while the beef is resting. Simply slice and serve.
2. The key to great sautéed mushrooms is to use a combination of mushrooms. The most common types of mushrooms used in this dish are cremini, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms. But feel free to use a mix of your favorite mushrooms, such as portobello, porcini, and chanterelles. The more variety you have in your mix, the more complex and interesting the flavor will be.
3. The mushrooms are cooked in a combination of butter and olive oil. The butter adds richness and flavor, while the olive oil adds a fruity, slightly bitter note. You can also add some garlic and shallots to the pan for even more flavor. Be sure to cook the mushrooms until they are browned and crispy around the edges. This will give them the best texture and flavor.
2. Roasted asparagus
Asparagus is a delicious and healthy side dish for any main course, and it’s especially good when paired with grilled beef tenderloin. To make this simple yet flavorful side, trim the asparagus and toss it with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Serve the asparagus hot or at room temperature, with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
