Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (2 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

Nutritional Facts

5 ounces stuffed cooked beef equals 238 calories, 12 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 82 mg cholesterol, 417 mg sodium, 3 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 28 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1-1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the mushrooms until tender. Add the garlic; cook for 1 minute. In a small bowl, combine the mushroom mixture, spinach and cheese; set aside.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the tenderloin to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open tenderloin so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 3/4 in. thickness. Remove plastic; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread stuffing over meat to within 1 in. of edges.
  3. Close tenderloin; tie at 2-in. intervals with kitchen string. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 30 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 13, 2012

this is fabulous, sometimes we add prosicutto in the middle or we change the cheese to a milder cheese to make a kid friendly meal. Turns out perfect each time!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2010

This was wonderful. I used regular spinach and added it to the pan of

mushrooms, after I turned off the heat. I also used roquefort cheese instead of blue.
