This melt-in-your-mouth roast beef tenderloin is what to serve any time you want to entertain in high style and let guests know that they are truly special.
If you want to pull out all the stops for dinner guests, this roast beef tenderloin should be at the top of your list. It isn’t a budget savvy choice, for certain; however, it will not disappoint. This cut of meat is second to none and is unparalleled in wow factor.
My old and dear friend Ashely Polk served this tenderloin at a supper club YEARS ago, and all of us who were there declared it the BEST beef tenderloin any of us had ever eaten. We were all literally raving over this recipe and were thrilled that Ashley was willing to share it with us. It is the only recipe for beef tenderloin I’ve made since my first taste of this over a decade ago.
Ashley’s recipe specifies a very expensive sherry (Hartley & Gibson’s) that I have never found locally. A mid-range moderately priced sherry works just fine, and leftover sherry can be used for myriad purposes (i.e. deglazing pans or these sherried mushrooms).
Per this recipe, you will end up with a rare tenderloin. I cook this longer, at least to medium in the center and medium-well on the ends. A cooking thermometer is key to determining desired doneness without having to slice into the meat. I use a CDN Quick-Read Thermometer and love it.
I recommend serving the tenderloin with Gourmet Gruyere Cheese Grits, Baby Blue Salad, roasted asparagus, yeast rolls, and Fallen Chocolate Souffle Cake. This menu would impress and delight any guest and make a meal to remember.
