Mushroom-Blue Cheese Tenderloin

Here’s a simple entree that is sure to impress. I usually double the mushroom-cheese sauce because it always disappears fast. Enjoy the tenderloin! —Eric Schoen, Lincoln, NE
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 45 min. + standing
  • Makes
    10 servings (1-1/2 cups sauce)


  • 1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth, undiluted
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 green onions, chopped


  • If desired, tie tenderloin with bakers twine. In a shallow dish, combine soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce; add the beef and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Drain beef, discarding marinade. Rub the beef with garlic and pepper; place in a shallow roasting pan. Add broth to the pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 45-55 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Let stand for 10 minutes and remove twine before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the cheese, Worcestershire sauce and caraway seeds; cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Stir in onions; heat through. Serve sauce with beef.

    I made this easy dish for a dinner party and it was a hit. I doubled the sauce and was glad that I had; there wasn't a drop left! I'll make this again.

    Amazing recipe! I'm not a great cook but this was easy to make. My family has asked for it again for Christmas dinner. I only use Clemson blue cheese! YUM!

    Delicious! The sauce has a very heavy blue cheese taste so a little goes a long way. My husband had 3 helpings! I served this with a sautéed spinach recipe I found on this website & it went perfectly together.

    I cut the recipe in 1/2 for a smaller crowd and everything worked out perfectly. I absolutely LOVE blue cheese and this sauce was to die for! The beef cooked to perfection. Definitely a keeper for special occasions!
