If your grocer doesn’t keep beef tenderloin in stock, call ahead and ask your butcher to order one for you. Pick it up the day before you plan to serve it.

Then, add the Stone House Seasoning to the beef tenderloin at least one hour before cooking or up to overnight. You can also prepare it even more ahead of time if you like. I actually like to plan ahead for holidays meals like Christmas by seasoning my beef tenderloin and wrapping it tightly with plastic wrap up to four days in advance. I’ve found that the longer I let the let the Stone House Seasoning rest on the beef, the more flavor the beef has once cooked!

Just be sure to keep your wrapped beef tenderloin on a baking sheet in the refrigerator.

The Stone House Seasoning forms a crust on the beef tenderloin as it roasts that always impresses.

For my beef tenderloin recipe, you can either prepare it in the oven or even on the grill or Big Green Egg if you are looking for a more smokey flavor!

You’ll cook your beef tenderloin until it reaches an internal temperature of 145º F when checked with an instant read internal thermometer.

You can also use a digital thermometer that you can program the desired temperature. When the meat reaches the desired temperature, the thermometer alarms, alerting you that your meat is ready. This is especially when you have multiple things going on in the kitchen or on the grill!

You’ll find that on the beef tenderloin there are thicker and thinner areas. You’ll want to be sure to check the temperature in both, but make sure that it registers 145º F in the thinnest part of beef tenderloin and about 140º F in the thicker area.

Then, remove the beef tenderloin from the oven or grill, tent with foil and allow to rest for about 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

  15. This sounds delist! You mention Worcestershire in the description. Do you add Worcestershire along with the seasoning before you wrap it?

  16. My question is also about the Worcestershire ….it is in the picture and mentioned in the description – but it is not on the recipe card at all…..is it used and how?

  17. How much Worcesrershire? Looks delicious!

    • Hi Jeanette,
      I’m sorry for the confusion, but I’ve now corrected the blog post to match the recipe. I no longer use Worcestershire sauce, I just use my Stone House seasoning and follow my recipe instructions. It is absolutely delicious and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! Thanks so much!

  18. Looks amazing! You mention Worcesteshire sauce and it is in the photo, but not listed in the recipe.Please add it in so we will have the same delicious results!.
    Thanks!

    • Hi Donna,
      It is amazing! I’ve corrected the blog post to match the recipe as now I only use my Stone House Seasoning and follow my recipe instructions. It is so delicious and such a favorite in my family – I hope it is in yours as well! Thanks so much! xo

  19. I’m surprised no one has mentioned the absence of the Worcestershire in the ingredients or the directions, even though it’s mentioned in the blog. I too want to know at what stage to add and approximately how much.

    • Hi Mardi,
      Thanks for mentioning that – I have corrected the blog post to remove mention of Worcestershire. I now only use my Stone House Seasoning and follow the instructions in my recipe. I hope you enjoy this – it’s a family favorite and I hope it is in your home as well! Thanks! xo

  20. Is there a substitute for the Stone House seasoning. I have not seen that in my area.

    • Hi Betty,
      The Stone House Seasoning is my name for this seasoning I make. If you click the link I give, it will take you to the recipe. It is simple to make and so delicious! I hope you enjoy it! I make it and keep on hand – and even give it to friends. Thanks!

  21. I too, would like to know about the worcestershire sauce, when to add and how much.

    • Hi Michelle,
      I’m sorry if this was confusing, but I’ve corrected the blog post as the recipe itself is correct. Now I only use my Stone House Seasoning and follow my recipe instructions. I hope this helps! Thanks so much – I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!

  22. What do you recommend serving this with? What sides? Mashed potatoes? Green beans? Would love to hear what your full menu would be as I’d like to make this for Christmas Eve!

  23. The beef tenderloin wa had at your barn was phenomenal. Can I just hire y’all to cook me one for Christmas? 😜. Merry Christmas to you all!

  24. Hi Robyn I don’t always have time to make your recipes but I want to say what a pleasure it is to read them and all the personal comments and touches that you add. I gave you a cookbook to my niece for her birthday and she was thrilled. I look forward to your emails and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. This message is from Beth in New Hampshire. xoxo

  25. That was supposed to say Beth Kelly somehow my talking email rename me as Berh! LOL

  26. This recipe says to rub the seasoning all over the roast. I’m looking at the picture and it looks like much more than 1 T. of seasoning. Will it be Ok to put more than 1T? I would like a well-seasoned roast.

    Thanks and I always LOVE your with.
