  10. Place tenderloin on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  11. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
  12. Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for rare 140 degrees, medium 160 degrees and well done 170 degrees).
  13. Let stand 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Very good recipe and not too hard to make. The blue cheese was too pungent when I made it the first time, so the next time I used shredded swiss instead of the blue cheese and my guests loved it.
