- Whole Beef Tenderloin (4-5 pounds)
½ cup Spicelopedia Chili Lime Adobo seasoning
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot work well)
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- Fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme) for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Prepare the beef: trim excess fat and silver skin from beef tenderloin. Season the tenderloin generously with Chili Lime Adobo seasoning.
- Sear the beef: Heat olive oil in oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the beef on all sides until browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.
- Roast in the oven: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast the beef for about 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads your desired doneness (135°F/57°C for medium-rare, 145°F/63°C for medium).
- Rest the beef: Remove the beef from the oven and let it rest on a cutting board for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
- Make the wine glaze: in the same skillet used for searing, add minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the red wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze it. Add beef broth and balsamic vinegar. Simmer and reduce the liquid by half.
- Finish the glaze: Stir in butter until melted and the sauce has a smooth consistency.
- Slice and serve: Slice the rested beef tenderloin into thick slices and arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle the wine glaze over the sliced beef. Garnish with fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme.
- Serve warm: Serve the roasted beef tenderloin with wine glaze immediately, and enjoy!
The dish pairs well with roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a side of your choice. The wine glaze adds a rich and flavorful touch to the tender beef. Adjust seasoning and cooking times based on your preferences and size of the tenderloin.
