Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place roast into a shallow, glass baking dish. Pour soy sauce and melted butter over the tenderloin.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn the roast over, and continue cooking 35 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally until the internal temperature of the roast is at 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium. Or, cook to your desired degree of doneness. Let meat rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Really good and easy but I think the time is way off. I only had 2lb tenderloin and had to cook it for the same time as 3lb and it was only med-rare which we like but for some that just wouldn't work. Adjust cooking time with your sides so they aren't cold by the time the beef is. Very tasty though!

I always have a beef tenderloin on hand but was looking for something different to do with it. When I saw this recipe with only three ingredients, I had to try it because if it was good...then I had the easiest recipe of all time in my recipe arsenal! I even tried it out on my husband and two guests (I did use low sodium soy sauce and unsalted butter which I would recommend)...and everyone loved it and said they'd give it 4.5 stars. Since I couldn't do the half star...I'm going 5 because of the simplicity. Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe.

DELICIOUS!! This will impress your guests! I made a 5 lb tenderloin and doubled the sauce to serve 6 with leftovers. Added a mix of oyster, cremini, and baby bella mushrooms last 15 minutes as suggested by other reviews. Served with potato gratin and green bean bundles from this site. This was a very impressive dish with minimal effort, although the cut of meat is expensive.
