Beef Tenderloin

Easy
Makes 4-6 oz. per person
Ingredients: 

2-4 lb. whole beef tenderloin

1/2 cup dry red wine

1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp. Kitchen Bouquet Browning and Seasoning Sauce

- salt and cracked black pepper, to taste

Instructions: 

Arrange tenderloin on an oiled broiler pan. Tuck "tail" under for uniform thickness and even cooking. Roast in a preheated 425° oven 35-40 min. for rare (135° internal temperature) or 40-50 min. for medium (150° internal temperature). Arrange meat on a cutting board; let stand, covered with foil, 10 min. before carving. Serve with Au Jus.

AU JUS: Pour wine, water and Kitchen Bouquet Browning and Seasoning Sauce in bottom of broiler pan. Warm over medium heat, stirring to loosen any cooked-on drippings; season to taste with salt and cracked black pepper.

Good to Know: A good instant-read thermometer allows you to check the temperature of the meat for perfect doneness. Insert thermometer in thickest part.
