Roasted Beef Tenderloin Recipe

An oven-roasted or pan-seared beef method from Cumbrae's butcher shop.
Ingredients

4-5 lb. beef tenderloin
Salt and pepper to taste
4 tbsp olive oil

Directions

Oven Method

Step 1: Allow beef to thaw to room temperature.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 3: Season and lightly rub beef with olive oil.

Step 4: Roast beef for 10-15 minutes, then turn temperature down to 350°F and roast 12-15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 120°F for rare and 125-130°F for medium-rare (time may vary depending on thickness of tenderloin).

Step 5: Remove from oven and allow to rest for 7-10 minutes.

Note: The only true way to measure doneness is by using an instant read thermometer.

Searing method

Step 1: Allow beef to thaw to room temperature.
