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
