Foodie Friday ~ Chateaubriand

(Beef Tenderloin Roast)

3 to 4 pound Beef Tenderloin (prepared for Roast)
2 tablespoons softened butter
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped green onions
sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
ground pepper
3/4 cup Sherry or Port wine

Preheat oven to 425°. Place roast in shallow roasting pan (rack may also be used) fat side up.
Spread with softened butter, add water and cover loosely with foil
for first 10 minutes.
Roast for 45 minutes. Adding water keeps meat moist
while roasting.
Sauté onions in butter in small pan till tender, not brown.
Blend in soy sauce, mustard and pepper.
Stir in wine just to simmer. Baste meat occasionally while
roasting, keeping the rest warm to serve with the meat.
Sliced mushrooms may
be added to sauce and over meat.

Let us take you to tour of adventures where you will find your appetite increasing each bit, through garnishing the gravy of memories with masala of desi tadka. This is a place for foodies who love eating and sharing too. If you have tasted something out of ordinary, we would happy to hear in your own desi words. You will find everything from the “mango” words of “mango” people.

Let us share with us
