Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin

Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin with a pepper crust, roasted mini tomatoes, and thyme that has been marinated in red wine, beef stock and lots of garlic. I kept the beef in the marinade for 24 hours, for the flavors to sink in.

I browned the beef for a few minutes, covered it in freshly ground pepper and some sea salt, topped it with thyme and baked it until pink and juicy. To make it even more exciting, I added a few mini grape tomatoes to the baking dish, they got perfectly roasted and are such a nice compliment to the beef.

Why You’ll Love This Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin:

  • Very easy to make with minimal prep work.
  • A hearty and delicious meal, that looks good to be served for a special occasion dinner.
  • This meal is perfect for busy weeknight meals, and also for a fancy get together.
  • The meal is packed with protein, so a light side dish like roasted veggies or salad is perfect and also easy to prepare.
  • The beef can be marinated in advance and cooked before dinner.
  • This dish is very flavorful and you will have delicious leftovers.

Tips and tricks to make the perfect Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin:

  • Use grass-fed, organic stew meat if possible – grass-fed meat tends to be extra tender, which is perfect in this recipe.
  • Brown the beef – this has double purpose, first it locks the meat from the outside together.
  • The wine can be replaced with beef broth if you want to skip it.
  • Plan in advance so you have time to marinate the beef long enough, this way you will have a flavorful and tender roasted beef tenderloin.

What to serve with this Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin?

Can I substitute pork for beef?

Yes, pork  or ham is a great alternative for beef in many recipes including this one. If you are going to use pork or ham instead of beef, I would recommend using pork tenderloin. The cooking time will also vary best on the cut that you choose.

More of a chicken person? Try my other favorite chicken dishes like Cranberry Orange Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken and Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken.

What is the difference between the beef loin and beef tenderloin?

The main difference is that these are not cut from the same part of the animal, they also look very different. The loin yields the most tender and expensive cuts of beef, however not the most flavorful. The choicest portion is the tenderloin, which is exquisitely tender and lean.

Tools/Ingredients that I used to make the Wine Roasted Beef Tenderloin:

  • Dried Thyme – I like to have dried thyme on hand for many recipes, including different rubs and marinades, it adds a nice flavor
  • Garlic Powder – no recipe in my house is made without garlic unless we are talking about cake. Garlic powder is versatile and it will add a lot of flavor to your main dishes
  • Onion Powder – great to have on hand to season main dishes and also to make meat rubs
  • Beef Broth – I always use organic in recipes, it also adds a tone of flavor

I love those salad kits! Makes everything so simple. And that beef tenderloin looks perfect. I have cooked one a couple of times now and it is so nerve wracking (don't want to see all that money go down the drain!)


Shelley @ Two Healthy Kitchens

What an absolutely, stunningly gorgeous recipe! And I just love those Eat Smart Salad Kits! Seriously - I buy them all the time, and just whip them up for my lunch or to go along with dinner. They're really delicious! Such a great idea to cut slices of your beef tenderloin and serve them atop the pretty salad!
