Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Green Beans and Sweet Potatoes

What could be better than steak that has been marinated and then grilled.  I can't think of a single thing. The green beans came from our garden which is really doing fantastic.  The garden is my husbands project, I will make something out of whatever he decides to plant (I am okay with that).

Steak Marinade 
This recipe came from a co-worker of mine.  I have enjoyed this recipe for many years.
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used tamari)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
Combine all in a jar.  Cover and shake well. Marinate meat for 1 hour or overnight.  Grill steaks over high heat for about 5 minutes per side (we like ours medium rare)

Green Beans with Walnuts
Clean green beans, remove ends if needed.  Steam green beans until tender. To a skillet add 1 tablespoon of butter, melt over medium heat.  Add a handful of walnuts and saute (just till they warm up), then add green beans and toss until coated.  Serve.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes
Take 2 Japanese sweet potato, slice super thin.  Place slices onto a piece of foil, overlap the slices slightly.  Add a couple of slices of butter; place the slices throughout the top of the sweet potato slices.  Sprinkle the top with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.  Place another piece of foil on top and turn up the ends so that you are sealing the potatoes into a foil packet.  Place the packet onto the grill over high heat, cook for 5 minutes, turn packet over and cook for another 5 minutes.  Removing to warming rack for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.
