Tender Stuffed Beef Tenderloin

As spectacular as it is to the eye— with ham, cheese and spinach peeking out of every slice— there's very little fuss to making this main dish. The meat turns out extremely tender, too.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing
  • Makes
    10-12 servings


  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3 pounds)
  • Celery salt, garlic powder and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 pound sliced provolone cheese
  • 6 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced fully cooked ham


  • Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the tenderloin to within 3/4 in. of bottom; open tenderloin so it lies flat. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle with celery salt, garlic powder and pepper. Layer with cheese, spinach and ham; press down gently. Roll up, starting with a long side; secure with string. Sprinkle with additional celery salt, garlic powder and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° until meat reaches desired oneness, about 35-40 minutes for medium (140°). Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
