Loved it! The herbs flavor came through. Very basic and easy. Cooked at 350 for about 1-1/2 hours. Took out at 130 degrees and let rest. Inside was pink, outside well done and moist. Read More

I only made a half tenderloin. I tried it twice. I recommend cooking at lower temp 400 and for only 35 minutes with smaller size. I also sauteed mushrooms with butter on stovetop and added to tenderloin for the last 10minutes. Read More

I had a 4 lb. beef tenderloin and 6 people for dinner. I didn't want a 2 step process(sear and roast). I mixed the olive oil and all the ingredients togetherand spread like a paste. Added salt and peppe first. I cooked it for 50 minutes. It was fabulous. Medium rare from edge to edge and very flavorful. Read More
