Spinach-Stuffed Beef Tenderloin

Posted by Solitary Dancer on January 23, 2007

Spinach-Stuffed Beef Tenderloin

This recipe was found at Light and Tasty

INGREDIENTS:

* 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
* 4 green onions, sliced
* 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
* 2 garlic cloves, minced, divided
* 2 packages (10 ounces each) fresh spinach leaves
* 1 teaspoon salt, divided
* 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1 whole beef tenderloin (about 3-1/2 pounds), trimmed
* 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
* 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

DIRECTIONS:

In a large nonstick skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in 1 tablespoon oil for 2 minutes.

Add half of the garlic; cook until mushrooms are tender.

Add spinach, 1/2 teaspoon salt and cayenne. Cook until the spinach is wilted. Remove from the heat; set aside.
Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of tenderloin to within 3/4 in. of bottom.

Open so meat lies flat. Spread with spinach stuffing. Fold one side of meat over stuffing; tie several times with kitchen string.

Rub remaining oil over beef.

Combine the onion powder, pepper and remaining garlic and salt; rub over beef.

Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 40-55 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).

Let stand for 10 minutes.

Remove string before slicing.

Yield: 12 servings.
