  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place roast into a shallow, glass baking dish. Pour soy sauce and melted butter over the tenderloin.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn the roast over, and continue cooking 35 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally until the internal temperature of the roast is at 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium. Or, cook to your desired degree of doneness. Let meat rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

We made this recipe with unsalted butter and low sodium soy sauce and it was still WAY too salty. Cut back on the soy sauce and replace it with low/no sodium beef broth and reduce the butter by ...

I was a little skeptical with so few ingrediants, but it was very easy and turned out quite good. I added fresh mushrooms the last 15 minutes, which I always like with my tenderloin.

I have made this twice. The second time I used low sodium soy souce which was even better (and I am a salt fan). Very tender and, best of all, easy.

Considering this being my first time roasting beef tenderloin, I have to say this recipe turned out pretty good. It does not call for much ingredients, it was simple, but very, very tasty! My hu...

I just made this dish for some very picky eaters and everyone loved it! A lot of them said that it tasted a lot like prime rib. I added some diced red potatoes to the casserole dish and it turne...
