Bleu Cheese Beef Tenderloin

February 22, 2008 at 7:00 pm 10 comments

T’s CW always raves about her butcher so a couple days ago she gave T a good size beef tenderloin to try and tonight I decided it would be a good friday date night-in dinner. I always get nervous with big pieces of meat (NB, don’t even go there… you dirty girl!) b/c I never know when its done. But ever since getting my trusty little meat thermometer I have (hopefully) overcome my fear.

(Recipe from | photos from me!


1 (3 pound) whole beef tenderloin
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup red wine
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup sour cream
1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


Place beef in a shallow dish. Combine teriyaki sauce, red wine and garlic; pour over beef. Allow beef to marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Place tenderloin on broiler pan, and cook in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and cook for 30 to 40 more minutes, or to desired doneness. Allow to set for 10 minutes before slicing.

In a saucepan over low heat, combine blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until smooth; serve over sliced tenderloin.

I served with baked potato and sauteed asparagus.


Husband rating: A/A+
He really loved everything – beef, baked potato and asparagus. He thought the bleu cheese sauce was good but only on the side and not alot.

Wifey rating: A
I really liked the sauce! You could probably even use it as a dipping sauce for chips or veggies if you wanted. I liked the beef tenderloin but its not my favorite protein.
