The best meal for any special occasion
This recipe for Slow Roasted Beef Tenderloin is by far, my most favorite special occasion meal to make. It is not only one of the easiest dishes I have ever made, but it is also sure to impress even the most critical of guests. (Hopefully you don’t have too many critics in your life!)
There are no tricks, fancy techniques needed to execute this recipe. All you need is a great cut of beef, an in oven thermometer, fresh tarragon and butchers twine. After that, the oven does all the work.
Having made this beef countless times, I can tell you that every-single-time, the results are simply beyond impressive.
How to make filet of beef- step by step
The secret to success- The Dot.
The secret to achieving perfectly cooked beef tenderloin is nailing the temperature. The only way that can be done is with a trustworthy in oven thermometer. I came across the Thermoworks Dot years ago and I have several. I gift them frequently to all the cooks in my life. A must have for anyone who wants to remove the stress out of cooking any roast.
The perfect pairing – Basil Parmesan sauce
I have tried many, many sauces to accompany this beef tenderloin recipe, but I always come back to the Ina Garten’s original recommendation of Basil Parmesan sauce.
The combination of herbal flavor from the tarragon combines perfectly with the sweet basil.
