As an alternative to turkey or ham for the holidays one year, I decided to try this recipe. My family liked it so much, it's become a standard at our house. The meat is very tender and flavorful, and the potatoes get nicely browned. The marinade cooks into a terrific sauce. -Mrs. Clifford Davis, Fort Smith, Arkansas

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + marinating Bake: 1 hour + standing
MAKES: 10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3 envelopes (.7 ounce each) Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 10 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Pierce tenderloin in several places; add to the bag and turn to coat. Seal and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook for 15-20 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; toss with butter, salt and pepper.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. Place tenderloin on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Arrange potatoes around meat.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 60-75 minutes or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing; serve with pan juices and potatoes. Yield: 10-12 servings.

Thought this was very good. Didn't use a rack, though, as I like to cook veggies in the gravy. Will definitely be making this again.
