Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin

  • Yield: Serves 8
Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 (2 1/4-lb.) center-cut beef tenderloin roast, trimmed (2 1/2 inches thick)
  • 14 thick bacon slices (1 ¼ lbs.)
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. 1. In a small bowl combine rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper; rub and press evenly on all sides of beef. Set aside.
  2. Place a long sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface. Arrange bacon slices crosswise on plastic wrap, slightly overlapping each piece to form a rectangle. Place beef lengthwise on bacon slices. Bring bacon slices up around beef and secure ends with toothpicks. Wrap beef tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove beef from refrigerator; remove and discard plastic wrap. In a large roasting pan placed over two burners heat oil over medium heat. Place beef, seam-side down, in pan. Cook until bacon begins to brown, turning to brown on all sides.
  4. Place roasting pan in oven. Roast beef, uncovered, 30 to 35 minutes (145°F for medium-rare) or to desired doneness. Transfer beef, seam-side down, to a platter; remove toothpicks. Let beef stand 10 minutes before slicing.
