This recipe has definitely made it into my list of “special occasion recipes” folder. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com. It is worth seeing the comments if you don’t believe me, “It was soooooooooo incredibly good.” Here is the link if you want to see it with the original title: Fabulous Beef Tenderloin.
The cut of meat is super expensive here (“lomo fino” to all my Peruvian friends), but so worth it for a special occasion like Christmas or New Year’s. I bought little hoagie style rolls and we ate mini-steak sandwiches for 2 days afterward. If there was an Arby’s Super Gourmet restaurant, I am pretty sure they would serve something like these.
I followed the recipe exactly and got excellent results. The only critical feedback I received from Greg is that he wished I had doubled the sauce. I totally agree with him. There wasn’t enough of the sauce to drench our mashed potatoes for every meal. 🙂 And what I really love… it is super easy. So easy that I am not going to make you go to the link if you don’t want to. I can type it out from memory.
Fabulous Beef Tenderloin (serves 6)
1-3 lb beef tenderloin (or 1.5 k lomo fino)
3/4 c soy sauce
1/2 c melted butter (but we will be doubling the bottom 2 ingredients next time)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place tenderloin in shallow baking dish and pour sauce over the meat.
2. Bake 10 minutes, and then flip over continuing to cook the roast another 35-40 minutes. Baste occasionally. (when interal temp is 140 F it is medium). Cook to desired doneness. After taking it out, allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
We like ours medium and 40 minutes was PERFECT. If you are looking for a yummy, special meal try this out.
