TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 45 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sherry or reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the sherry, soy sauce, soup mix and brown sugar. Pour 1 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add tenderloin. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 5 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 425°. Drain and discard marinade. Place tenderloin on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, 45-50 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting often with 1/3 cup reserved marinade. Let stand for 10-15 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring water and remaining marinade to a rolling boil 1 minute or until sauce is slightly reduced. Slice beef; serve with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
