Mushroom-Blue Cheese Tenderloin Recipe

“This is a simple recipe that tastes fabulous. I usually double the mushroom-Roquefort sauce, because it always disappears very fast. Enjoy the tenderloin!” —Eric Schoen, Lincoln, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 45 min. + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth, undiluted
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 green onions, chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Add the beef; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Rub the beef with garlic and pepper; place in a shallow roasting pan. Add broth to the pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 45-55 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the cheese, Worcestershire sauce and caraway seeds; cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Stir in onions; heat through. Serve sauce with beef. Yield: 10 servings (1-1/2 cups sauce).

"Delicious! The sauce has a very heavy blue cheese taste so a little goes a long way. My husband had 3 helpings! I served this with a sautéed spinach recipe I found on this website & it went perfectly together."

"I made this for an elegant dinner party for friends at Christmas. It was wonderful! All our friends raved about the beautiful presentation and the flavor, which they described as delectable. It was quite easy to prepare ahead of time. I made the cheese sauce just before guests arrived and kept it warm in my smallest crockpot. I found the sauce a little too rich as written so I added beef broth for a thinner sauce. Just delicious!"

"Wow, this was so good. The marinade made the beef taste so good. I loved the sauce, but my husband - who doesn't like blue cheese - didn't. However the beef tasted so good he ate it happily without the sauce and I gobbled it up with."
