Marinated Beef Tenderloin Recipe

Marinated Beef Tenderloin Recipe

My three grown children and grandkids enjoy this tempting tenderloin. Leftovers make wonderful sandwiches with oven-fresh bread and Dijon mustard. I sometimes substitute a marinated eye of round roast...and it turns out fine.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 55 min. + standing YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 to 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; mix well. Cover and refrigerate 1 cup for basting. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add bay leaf and tenderloin. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade and bay leaf. Place tenderloin on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 55-60 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting often with reserved marinade. let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.

"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."
