While thick, marbleized chunks of grilled beef tenderloin may be a dish dad has had a million times, the accompaniment — a creamy corn and bacon relish — is an innovative and unexpected surprise. To add depth of flavor, the corn is grilled before being tossed with the remaining relish ingredients. You can cook the relish in a saute pan over the coals like the recipe does, or if you prefer, throw things together in the comfort of your kitchen.
