  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing
  • Makes
    16 servings


  • 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 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Remove meat to a serving platter. Cover and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

    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

    Why do you come on this site to complain about every recipe and now you are trying to make people feel stupid when they are giving their opinion about their own personal experience.. Seriously get a life..

    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!

    Tender and delicious. The stuffing was savory and really gave the roast a mouth watering effect!

    I made this for Easter dinner this year. I used a 2 lb tenderloin portion and cooked for about 45 minutes for a nice medium rare piece of meat. My husband and I couldn't stop raving about the flavors in this dish. It is definately a keeper.
