Oven at 500 for 30 minutes, remove and cover in foil for another 30 minutes. That's how we roll.

It has. It has been my experience that I enjoy it more if I break it into big filets. I use the trimmings and smallest medallions to make amazing sliders with seasoning, onions, and cheese on jalapeño Hawaiian rolls.

Reverse sear in the oven at 225° until 125° internal, rest, portion into steaks, sear on blazing hot grill.

It'll be the best filet you've ever had.

Make sure you get all the silverskin off. Reserve the chain and trim it up later to make cheesesteaks with it. Reverse sear or sous vide whole to about 125. Slice into steaks and char on a rocket hot grill. Cram into cramhole.

Also, by sear I mean max 30 seconds a side.

Gaston described what we have done for a few Christmases. Got the idea from my sister in law in Oregon. Serve with a gorgonzola butter topping.

Get some puff pastry, mushrooms, some pate, and make individual Wellingtons.

They are stupid easy to make and will be the best outcome for that piece of meat.

No offense, but that's a terrible way to cook meat.

My Dad has been cooking whole tenderloin for as long as I can remember to rave reviews and requests. We can't serve enough of it at parties.

He trims it of fat and silverskin and then ties it back together. He likes lemon pepper so he seasons it generously with that. He cooks otvon a big barrel charcoal pit on the side off the coals to medium rare in the middle. I think he turns it away from the coals a few times. It's like butter.

How you figure?

Cook to internal temperature, rather than guess.

re: Whole beef tenderloin...
Well at least you didn't use the stupid phrase "perfect medium rare". The difference in internal temperature is why it's a good method for us. Rare to medium...if we all had to agree on one temp almost no one would get what they want.

That's fine.

It's just easy to ruin meat by just guessing.
