Holiday Beef Tenderloin Recipe

Temperature To Cook Beef Tenderloin :

  • Rare (120-125˚F) – 20 minutes
  • Medium Rare (130-135˚F) – 24 minutes
  • Medium (138-140˚F) – 26 minute

Note to Make Juicy Roast :

To ensure a flavorful, juicy roast, remove beef from the oven at least 5 degrees less than your desired final temperature as the beef will continue to cook during the resting period. This resting time also allows the meat juices to be reabsorbed into the meat fibers keeping them nice and juicy.
