Roasted Beef Tenderloin 10/10
Oh My! This is hands down one of my favourite recipes I have ever made! 10 out of 10! Thanks, Ree Drummond. I am sometimes a little hesitant about new recipes because of the cost of so many ingredients, but this one was well worth the price. This is a lovely supper, and it’s also a great dinner such as a Birthday Celebration if you would like to impress your guests.
The main ingredient here is a whole beef tenderloin that weighs about 7 lbs. Next you n,eed a little bi,t of spice such as salt, pepper, sugar, oil and, BACON GREASE! This was a total shock to me. I had never used bacon grease really in anything other than frying flapjacks, and I did not ever save my bacon fat. So I did have to make some bacon and start saving my fat. Being in Canada, we have some wonderful bacon, and the fat is ridiculously flavourful. So get frying your bacon and start saving your fat for this big beef of tenderloin!
So I like to let my meat rest for at least an hour on the counter before I start to cook it. I always add just a touch of salt to the meat while it rests. So I did just that before I started to make my loin. When my meat was ready I seared the meat win a hot pan that contained oil and butter ensuring thatI seared all sides. As my meat was searing I made the rub which was a combination of salt, pepper,sugar and oil and bacon fat. It was now time to almost put my meat into my 450 F oven.
Before you put this beef loin in the oven, you need to put the rub on it. When you are finished, place the loin in a pan on a rack that fits inside your pan. You can roast for about 15 minutes, then take it out to rest on your cutting board for 10 minutes. Then slice and serve with your favourite side dish.
