For cooking a Whole or Half Beef Tenderloin.
John Henry's Beef Tenderloin
Whole or Half
Oil & Skillet
or 3 inch deep pan
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
Sprinkle meat generously with salt & pepper - be sure to add enough. Tie with kitchen twine.
Heat oil in skillet. When oil is hot place tenderloin in skillet and sear for a few minutes on each side. Add a few tablespoons of butter to the pan to sear in buttery flavor as well. Once nicely browned on each side, remove from skillet.
Place tenderloin in 3 inch deep pan or roasting pan - do not cover! Put several tablespoons of butter all over the meat.
Insert the needle of the thermometer into the meat lengthwise so that it will get an accurate reading of the internal temperature while cooking.
Use the Beef Doneness Chart to know when to remove the meat from the oven. Remember, it will continue to cook internally for a few minutes after you remove it from the oven.
Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Baste meat in the butter and juices from the bottom of the pan.
