Grilled Beer Marinated Prosciutto Wrapped Fillet Tip Skewers5P

Don’t roll your eyes at me. I’m not even sorry that I keep making you skewers.

I’m in a mood to put meat on sticks these days, and the grill is officially open. I’ve also discovered that filet tips are perfect for getting soaked in beer, stabbed with a metal skewer and thrown on a hot grill. Which makes them my new meat best friend.

Let’s talk about those tips I speak of for a second. When you decide it’s a good day to throw a Hot Meat Party (normal humans call these “barbecues”) and invite your friends to partake in said hot meat for the price of some (hopefully good) beer or other edible offering, you should choose your meat carefully. You want something that’s going to impress, but feeding an army of hungry beer thieves takes a lot of meat. Tips can often be less expensive than buying a whole filet and better flavor than buying a cheap cut.

Beer marinading is a must with Hot Meat, the natural meat tenderizing properties of beer give the meat an added ability to stay tender and full of flavor even when exposed to high levels of grill induced heat. It also makes your beer bearing friends so impressed with your grill skills, they’ll bring better beer next time.
