The Most Amazing Life Changing Beef Tenderloin

Where have you been all my life???  My hairdresser that has been cutting my hair for as long as I can remember, longer than I have been married, gave this recipe to me.  It took me so long to try it because it sounded to easy and I could not believe that these directions really worked.  If you have priced beef tenderloin, you don’t want to screw it up. Well I bit the bullet and gave it a try.  It was so amazing, that I cannot even find the words to describe it–tender, juicy, decadent, life altering to name a few.  If you want to do a very special dinner this is a must.  So great for Christmas as you are not cooking all day or worrying about the meat getting done on time.  Believe me this works.

Here it is in a nutshell:

Smear the meat with butter ( a must), salt and pepper liberally.  Place in a 500 degree oven for

22 minutes for rare

24 minutes for medium rare  ( I do the 24 minutes)

Take out of the oven and cover with foil and let rest for 15-20 minutes.  Carve and serve.  Christie serves this with a gorgonzola sauce, but since I am the only one in my family that likes that and we love the taste so much of the beef, I do not do this.  I am sure it would be out of this world

I purchased my tenderloin at Costco
