Beef Tenderloin

My grocery store had a sale on beef tenderloin for $5.99 a lb. , I decided to make it for dinner. I tied it with kitchen twine, salted it with kosher salt, seared it in vegetable oil. Made a mixture of hot-sweet mustard with evoo, basil, salt and pepper, onion powder, brushed it on the meat. I had the oven preheated at 450 degrees, cooked meat for about 25 min , til temp reached 125 degrees, took it out , let it rest for 15 min. It was so tender and delicious! We don't like bloody meat, it was just right for us, pink on the inside .

A word of caution. I have heard of, but not seen, a different cut or cuts of meat that are being sold with tenderloin as part of their name. Something along the lines of top round tenderloin or shoulder tenderloin. These are not the same true tenderloin and may be disappointing if you are expecting the real thing.

If it's the real thing, go buy a freezer and fill it.

Thanks Andy - I just went and checked out the label and it says beef tenderloin --- I hope it tastes as good! Better that I prepare it first before I go and get more, huh? You are always looking out for me, thanks!

Hi, Katie. Welcome to DC.

26 minutes for steaks is a very long time! Grills differ from one to the other. So do techniques so it's hard to give an exact time.

Your best bet is to use a meat thermometer and take them off at an internal temperature of around 125F to 130F and let them rest for 5-20 minutes before cutting into them.

I'd start them on high heat to sear both sides then move to indirect heat to finish the interior to the right level.

Thanks so much. It is a weber grill that is fairly new. So, maybe sear 1 minute on each side (high heat) then put to indirect heat? I (well, hubby) made last year for Easter and they were amazing. I know he wont remember how long he cooked for. Thanks so much for your help. Is it true never to pierce meat?
