    OT - what to do w/ a beef tenderloin

    My first thought was "Duh - eat it!" :)

    When you start to get tired of beef, I say slice it real thin, pan-sear it, and serve it with a balsalmic vinagrette on a bed of spinach with tomatoes, candied walnuts, and whatever else makes you happy.

    OT - what to do w/ a beef tenderloin

    So, FMIL somehow had a zillion pounds of beef tenderloin and gave us half a zillion of them. I seriously have a whole cow in my freezer...lol. What do I do?

    Can i pan sear it and then put it in the crock pot? Or is it better in the oven? I have about 7 of them so if I fail the first 3 times hopefully the next 4 will turn out well...hahaa. :-)

    recipes welcomed!! (think cheap, and easy...mostly cheap)

    Beef tenderloin shoul not be wasted on stew, or crockpot meals. For a roast, bring to room temp.[45 min],lightly oil and salt&pepper. Roast in oven , til 10degrees less than you want it. Take out ,put foil on loosely to cover and let rest for 10 min. Pan fry it basically the same way, use tongs to turn it, and make sure the meat isn't really cold because that ruins the texture of it. www.allrecipes is a good site to get easy recipes from.

    It might be considered a waste, but what if you cut it into chunks and made beef stew once or twice?

    Beef fajitas too...yum!

    Can you marinate some of it and freeze it for a few weeks out? If so you could use the grill later on...

    We did pan fried tenderloin Saturday night with mashed potatoes and green beans...I didn't have salt and ran out of Worcestershire, so I marinated them in A-1 for about 10 minutes and it came out great

    I forgot to mention the cheese. That's the best part! I normally go with gorgonzola, but I'm sure you can find something else good that's cheaper. Trader Joe's has a good selection that's pretty cheap.

    Slice it about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick for beautiful filet mignon steaks.
    I just saw the Barefoot Contessa roast a tenderloin roast in a 500 degree oven. She cooked hers to 125 for rare (I'd go 130 for medium rare). Makes a lovely roast sliced. She actually let hers cool and made wonderful looking sandwiches with arugula, parmesean and tomatoes on crusty french bread. Recipe should be available at Foodtv.com.
    Last time I made Beouf Bourguigon the butcher sold me tenderloin tips and it was delicious, so I'd say go ahead and make some into beef stew. But don't over cook it or it might completely fall apart.
    Normally I'd agree not to "waste" it on stews - but since you got it for free, you should do whatever you want! :)

    I've done something very similar to this one of Rachel Ray's, and it can be adapted to have a cheaper topping than gorgonzola. Blue cheese would be good, too, for less.

    thanks, maggierep for your advice. I was sick thinking someone would actually stew a tenderloin our treat it as chuck beef. www.allrecipies.com or www.cooks.com have many ideas for such a tender cut of beef.

    ETA. Don't you ever put it in a crockpot - that is for less tender meats. Like chuck roasts. Tenderloins you can almost eat raw. Treat it with respect.

    Good for you arms! See, you are already a pro --- but do put that meat thermometer on your wishlist. Even tenderloins turn out different. - Pingo


    [Quote]OK tried the first one tonight -- turned out great and practically no effort! I didn't do anything fancy just oil salt pepper and garlic powder, put it in for aobut 25 minutes at 425.

    Yummmy. :-)

    Dont know if I could do tar tar...eek.[/Quote]

    Ams - a meat thermometer is pretty cheap. I would just buy one, if you have that much tenderloin. You don't want to mess it up, and it'll come in handy later.
