MikeZev, you mentioned beef tenderloin lollipops wrapped in bacon for Super Bowl. I've been having a hard time getting them out of my mind. Do you have a recipe? Any special tips? Do you marinate first? etc. Too cold to grill here so I'll be using my George Foreman.

At least use your broiler, or cast-iron skillet if you have one. Don't throw a tenderloin onto a freakin George Foreman.

i dont really have a recipe for them but heres my plan: bacon strips go in the microwave for about a min or two to get a started. cubes of tenderloin (about 1.5 inches) will get a nice peppering and seared (maybe in butter or bacon fat) bacon gets wrapped around cubes and secured with a toothpick then grilled on the end of a popscicle stick. walla. i'll prolly do a few different dipping sauces garlic aioli, dijonnaise, soy/ ginger, buffalo/ bleu cheese, something spicy, etc.. i'm still kicking around some ideas. suggestions are very welcome...

I was thinking myself that blue cheese fondue, maybe with caramelized minced shallots in it, would make for a mighty fine dipping sauce. How bad could it be? Would doing the tenderloin on a George Foreman really be so horrible? Why?

Now that I think about it a little bit, I'm sure you guys are right. I'm going with the broiler.

"Too cold to grill here so I'll be using my George Foreman. " that would have not been a problem if you had a Big Green Egg

Yeah, because you can pull a Big Green Egg inside where it's warm and grill with it in your living room.
