How to Cook Beef Tenderloin in the Oven Perfectly Every Time

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1 Pair this roasted beef tenderloin with traditional mashed potatoes and a steamed green vegetable of your choice.
  • Tip 2 When cooked properly, beef tenderloin is indeed tender. You must keep in mind that this meat is extremely lean when cooking it, whether using this recipe or another one. Overcooking a tenderloin is a mortal sin because it lacks fat. With a tenderloin, overcooking it or cooking it at an excessively high temperature will result in a tough, dry piece of meat (and, dare we say, a financial waste). Because their fat renders and helps keep things moist and juicy, other cuts can withstand the heat a little better. This is the perfect opportunity to be cautious with your ingredients; the result will be a tenderloin roast that is absolutely stunning.
  • Tip 3 If you enjoy cooking a lot of meat and are particular about how it should be done, a meat thermometer is a useful appliance to have in your kitchen. An oven-safe thermometer that can be inserted at the beginning of cooking and give you a reading as it progresses is required for this recipe. An instant-read digital thermometer is another option for keeping an eye on the temperature; it can read out temperatures in a fraction of a second and isn’t oven-required. Some models are rather pricey, but as the market for them continues to grow, it’s getting simpler to find reasonably priced but good alternatives.
  • Tip 4 Filet mignon and other tenderloin-derived steaks are among the most expensive beef cuts available. Despite making up such a small portion of a cow’s yield, they are in great demand, so prices continue to be high. A beef tenderloin roast in the oven is certain to impress and be a meal that’s remembered for years to come when you have something to celebrate and only the best will do—well worth the investment, in our opinion.

  • A high-quality meat cut, like beef tenderloin, doesn’t require much special preparation to taste delicious. In actuality, the less preparation you give the beef tenderloin, the better. Olive oil, salt, pepper, and a light dusting of marjoram, an Italian herb that is essentially a milder version of oregano, are the only ingredients needed for this recipe. With this delicate preparation, you’ll get a tender, flavorful roast that truly embodies the beauty of simplicity.
