Wow! This marinate was delicious! Following the advice of other reviewers I used 1/2 cup soy sauce and !/2 Worcestershire. I cooked mine to medium, and it took about an hour and 20 minutes. I covered the meat with foil after an hour to avoid burning on the outside.

I made this for a party last night and everyone said it was the best! I used Worchester sauce instead of soy.

This was a winner! I did not have soy sauce, so I used Worchester sauce instead. Also, I forgot to put the bay leaf in the bag. But it came out great! I covered the roast for the first half hour and then cooked remaining time uncovered. This was a big hit!!! Very tender and tasty!

I used this marinade on 7 1/2 pounds of tenderloin on Christmas Eve dinner for 15 adults and 5 kids. I have never seen that much tenderloin disappear so fast! HIGHLY recommend!!! I only cooked it for 35 minutes.

I marinated 4 individual tenderloin filets over night and put them on the charcoal grill. They were delicious! I might cut the recipe in 1/2 next time as this makes a lot, which just gets tossed. I did save 1 cup as recommended and will use again in a few days with other beef entree.
