I was looking for a quick beef tenderloin recipe and decided to try this one. AWESOME. Quick and easy but doesn't taste like it. My wife said it was the best dinner I have ever made. Followed all directions except left out the hot sauce and cooked until internal temp was 140(med rare for the wife). I like my beef center cold. Making it again tonight.
Absolutely wonderful, my family loves this recipe. We like it med/rare so I use a meat thermometer and cook until it reaches 125 degrees. Let stand for 10 to 15 mins before carving and the end pieces have slight red and the middle is rare. Perfect!
This is one of the best tenderloin recipies ever. Though for personal taste I leave out the mushrooms and use a red onion instead, it has such a fantastic taste. The first time I made it for my family they all had seconds (and one of my kids is a really picky eater)!!!
