This is an easy but impressive roast beef recipe for whole beef fillet, or tenderloin, roasted and topped with a rich and complementary blue cheese sauce that is super simple to make.
I only made the blue cheese sauce to complement a sirloin steak and complement it did. Delicious. Dead easy to make too. - 04 Jan 2014
THANK YOU so much for this wonderful recipe! I made this for a party of 12. I was in awe of how it turned out-fab presentation!! I felt like I created a tavern on the green original. One note-do be very careful and WATCH the internal temp closely!! Remove from oven when it's 140 for medium-which was my goal. The temp will go up (for me it went 8 degrees more) while the tenderloin "rests" 10-15min prior to slicing and serving. It came out PERFECT-so juicy and flavorful!! I did put the garlic- in small chunks from the marinade on top of the tenderloin prior to putting it in the oven. Everyone raved! This is my new fav guest/dinner party menu item .....the only downside is the price of beef tenderloin ($13.99/lb) or we'd have this more often and not just special occasions. The cheese sauce was great-but it gets thick once it cools....I'd suggest to keep it in one of the thermal gravy type servers if you have it avail. - 14 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh My Stars! I screwed this recipe up and came away with a complete winner that has blown us away!!!!! Hubby and I were preparing our Valentines dinner, we had two strip steaks. I didn't read the recipe correctly. I halved the amounts due to just having two steaks. I did not marinate the meat, we grilled it with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I then put ALL of the ingredients together in a saucepan. The exceptions were that I used FETA cheese and used the garlic out of the jar from the produce section. I used a really good Merlot that we had with our dinner. This gave the mixture a pink appearance that was PERFECT for Valentines Day! I was worried in the beginning, but it turned out beautiful (candlelight makes us all look better - LOL!) We served this over the steaks, sauteed onions, jumbo cooked shrimp along with a baked potato that I had coated in olive oil and sea salt and then baked at 425 for one hour. We couldn't eat our salads. This needs to be submitted as its own recipe! My husband kept going "mmmmm" during the meal, LOL! *** 2/14/05 Made this again tonight for my children for Valentines Day. I only added a splash of Teriyaki sauce and 2 splashes of Worc. sauce and hubby and I liked it much better. My son went crazy over this! Delish! Thanks :-) ***Updat - Made this for Christmas Eve 2005. I made it exactly to recipe and it was DELICIOUS! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe! - 12 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
