I need some advice. I am cooking a beef tenderloin (2 5lb. tenderloins actually). I thought I would sear it at 500 or 600 degrees first, then let it cook at 300 for about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs. QUESTION: Does this sound okay? Also, what is a good marinade?

    Scott Strickland, I'll leave the times & temps to the more experienced, but the most incredible tenderloin marinade EVER is in Steve Raichlen's Miami Spice cookbook. If you'd like the recipe just let me know. JCA

    Scott Strickland,
    I've not cooked a tenderloin but my thoughts regarding such a fine piece of meat is to simply season it with salt/pepper and let the flavor of the meat come thru. As tender as that meat is, you don't need to marinade to make it more tender.

    Scott Strickland,
    Your plan is fine, but make sure you have a good thermometer in the meat so that it comes off at 130-135 for medium rare. Let it sit for 15 minutes before cutting. happy New Year.
