Stuffed Beef Tenderloin from Dillon's


1 to 1 and 1/2 pound beef tenderloin
3 to 4 oz  Blue cheese ( gorgonzola maybe used also)  Room temperature
2 to 3 oz chopped Walnuts ( pecans maybe used also)
Black Pepper
Olive oil
Kitchen string


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Being careful not to slice all the way through the meat, need to make a lengthwise slice in middle of meat to make a pocket
  • Mix together Cheese and Nuts, stuff into meat pocket. Tie the whole thing together with kitchen string.
  • Rub with olive oil, then salt and pepper all sides
  • In a saute pan, over medium high heat, sear meat on all sides.  Place into oven proof roasting pan. Place into oven. Check internal temperature with meat thermometer after 20-25 minutes, temperature should read 125 degrees, for rare.  Medium rare, 140 degrees, pink inside.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest a few minutes before slicing.
