Beef Tenderloin Roast or Chateaubriand happens to be on of my favorite roasts since it's so incredibly tender you can almost just cut it with the side of your fork.

It can be a little intimidating to make a more expensive cut of beef, but you'll be surprised just how easy it is to achieve restaurant quality results at home.

Here's my secret to how I make a delicious Beef Tenderloin Roast with Mixed Mushrooms:

First I start with a Certified Angus Beef ® Brand Tenderloin Roast. I love that I can trust the quality of beef when I see the label at the grocery store. It always has a consistent quality for a reasonable price. I know they sponsored this post but I really do love their beef for the quality.

We had bought a whole Beef Tenderloin on sale. Colt used this easy Certified Angus Beef® Facebook Video on How to Trim a Tenderloin Roast to prepare our roast, but you could ask your butcher to prepare your roast for you if your uncomfortable with trimming it yourself.

Trimmed uncooked Beef Tenderloin Roast.

First make sure to trim off any silver skin off of your Tenderloin Roast and tie it, if it didn't come prepared that way.

We trimmed our roast down to about 2 1/2lbs and used some of the leftover pieces to make Stir Fry. The remaining pieces are going to be used to make Beef Stroganoff From Scratch.

Beef Tenderloin Roast covered with herb butter.

First we'll make a herb butter crust. In a bowl mix together:

  • 1/3 cup Soften Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Chopped Fresh Rosemary 
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme Leaves with Stems Removed
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
Spread all over roast until well covered.

I like to cover the roast with an herb butter crust because it gives a delicious flavor to the outside of the roast and helps the outside become deliciously golden brown.


Roast Perfect App from Certified Angus Beef® Brand.

Then I used my Free Roast Perfect App from the App Store on my phone to calculate the cook time of my roast and used the timer based on my roast size. I love this app because it makes it easy to calculate cook time and also the timer makes it easy to cook my roast to desired doneness.

It also comes in handy to calculate how big of a roast I need to buy at the store, and features lots of delicious Chef tested recipes.

I had about 2.5lb Tenderloin Roast so the timer told me for Medium Rare to roast the Tenderloin at 450° for 15 minutes, then the timer went off to drop the temperature to 325° for 27 minutes more. I like to baste the roast with pan drippings about mid way through to promote even browning.

The timer then reminded me to rest the roast for 10 minutes. So I moved the roast to a warm platter and covered with foil while I made the mixed mushrooms.

I like to still use a meat thermometer to check the roasts is my desired doneness especially if you're picky about having a perfectly done roast.

I love to use this easy Degree of Doneness Chart with photos that makes it easy to know what temperature my roast should be.

I really love that if I make a 4lb Tenderloin Roast next time the app will calculate the additional cook time needed, or the cook time needed for a rare or well done roast.

Cremini and Chanterelle Mushrooms in a roasting pan with shallots being sautéed.

While the roast rests make the Mixed Mushrooms and pan sauce. 

If your roasting pan is stove top safe you can make them in that or transfer roast drippings to a large sauté pan. Add:
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 large Sliced Shallots
Cook over medium-high heat until shallots start to soften. Add:
  • 2 pounds Mixed Mushrooms Cut To Similar Size (I used 1 1/2 pounds Cremini Mushrooms and 1/2 pound Chanterelle Mushrooms)
Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Cook until Mushrooms are softened and cooked through about 6-8 minutes.

Add:
  • 1 1/2 cups Beef Bone Stock
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Chopped Flat Leaf Italian Parsley (I totally forgot this but it adds a nice contrast of color.)
Cook for another 3-4 minutes to condense pan sauce and reduce by about a 1/3rd. 

Taste sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Arrange mushrooms around roast if desired and spoon pan sauce over the top of roast. 

Alternatively the roast can be sliced and plated with mushrooms served on the side. Drizzle pan sauce over the top.
