Stuffing Stuffed Beef Tenderloin

Slices of this elegant but easy special-occasion roast look so attractive, and you'll be delighted with the flavor. Water chestnuts add enjoyable crunch to the savory stuffing. It's an entree I'm proud to serve to guests. -Mark Trinklein, Racine, Wisconsin

    12 servings


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed

  • In a shallow dish, combine the oil, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Make a lengthwise slit about three-fourths of the way through the tenderloin. Place in dish; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Open tenderloin; spoon stuffing on one side. Close and tie with kitchen string. Place in a greased shallow roasting pan.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for about 1-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Let stand for 10-15 minutes before removing string and slicing.

    Awesome recipe, although I had to substitute a "cheaper" (that's a very relative term!) cut of meat for the tenderloin since tenderloin here is over 50 euros a kilo. It was still wonderful!
