  • 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)


  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the stuffing cubes, broth, salt, garlic salt and pepper.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
