Tenderloin Roast

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Place roast, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert oven-proof meat thermometer in thickest part of roast. Do not add water or cover.

2. Roast according to chart. Remove when meat thermometer registers 135 degrees F for medium rare, 150 degrees F for medium. Let the roast stand 15 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise 10 degrees F to reach desired doneness and roast will be easier to carve.)
