This is a recipe that comes from lots of trying and tweaking. My husband and 4 children love this savory tender meat with the sweet sauce drizzled over it. It's elegant and pretty enough for a dinner party, but not a lot of work.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet. Cook and stir mushrooms and garlic in melted butter until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Mix bread crumbs, blue cheese, pistachio nuts, cranberries, parsley, onion powder, and seasoned salt into the mushroom mixture.

  • Cut a long slice lengthwise down the center of the tenderloin to within 1/2 inch of the other side. Spoon stuffing into the slice and fold meat around the stuffing. Secure tenderloin closed with kitchen string. Brush olive oil over the tenderloin; sprinkle with salt. Put tenderloin in a roasting pan.

  • Roast in preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer reads 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), 35 to 40 minutes. Cover beef loosely with aluminum foil and rest meat 15 minutes before slicing.

  • As the beef roasts, stir currant jelly, Merlot wine, beef broth, and 2 tablespoons butter together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until thick and syrupy, 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Arrange beef slices onto a platter and drizzle with currant sauce to serve.
