I highly recommend using a meat thermometer to measure the done-ness of your beef tenderloin. For medium-rare, remove the beef from the oven at 115 degrees F and let it rise to 125 degrees F while resting. For medium, remove the beef from the oven at 120 degrees F and let it rise to 130 degrees F while resting.
Instead of red potatoes, try baby golden, fingerling, or sweet potatoes.
Instead of cremini mushrooms, try button or shitake mushrooms, sliced portobello would also work well.
Any leftovers can be stored can be store covered in the fridge and are best enjoyed within two days. The beef can be enjoyed cold in sandwiches, or heat up leftovers in teh oven, covered with foil at 360F til warmed through.
Instead of Roquefort (blue cheese), stilton or gorgonzola cheese would also be delicious.
Christmas Dinner Ingredients & Notes
- Beef Tenderloin: I prefer to buy my beef tenderloins trimmed and tied (with the silver skin and fat removed and the beef tied into an even log)– just ask your butcher and they can help you find one!
- Olive Oil: Helps the beef and vegetables brown without burning.
- Salt & Pepper: The best way to flavor beef tenderloin– they lock in the flavor of the meat and enhance it’s natural meatiness.
- Garlic Powder & Thyme: Add delicious flavor to the potatoes- you can also add them to the mushrooms if you prefer.
- Butter & Flour: Create a roux that thickens the sauce.
- Heavy Cream: Adds richness to the sauce and helps the cheese melt.
