- 5 bacon strips
- 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups seasoned stuffing cubes
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 beef tenderloin (5 pounds)
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
- In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the stuffing cubes, broth, salt, garlic salt and pepper.
- Preheat oven to 425°. Make a lengthwise slit down the center of tenderloin to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open meat so it lies flat. Mound stuffing over the center. Bring up sides of tenderloin; tie at 2-in. intervals with kitchen string. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Arrange bacon over the top.
- Bake, uncovered, 50-80 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Remove meat to a serving platter. Cover and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 16 servings.

Reviews for Genrose's Stuffed Beef Tenderloin

Agreed. There was some serious nastiness in that comment, as well as many of her others! I am just here to learn how to better feed myself and my husband, not sling venom at others who wish to do the same.
I made the original recipe as is and a second one using a pork tenderloin omiting the onion and adding 1 thinly sliced granny smith apple. I made two sauces one made with whole cranberry sauce and sweet red wine the second was Hot apple cider with a little of the drippings and corn starch to thicken. both were the talk of the event. HIGH praise for Genrose, hope you submit more recipes
kiltyone: Has it not occurred to you that a recipe is just a starting point or do you want some cheese with your whine? Herbs and spices to suit your taste work wonders. It's called "imagination". As to a sauce, has it occurred to you to research a simple red wine butter or blue cheese sauce or, God forbid, a Madeira sauce (easiest thing in the world to make)? If you prefer you can use canned gravy (sarcasm intended). I believe you have a computer. Do some work; not everything is given to you. This recipe stands on it's own and with my modifications I will make it again and again and... thank you Genrose
This is quite tasteless and has no appropriate sauce to serve with it.
I would never make this again.
I also used a prime tenderloin..What a WASTE!
