Prep Time



Total Time






3-pound beef tenderloin
cup red wine vinegar
cup olive or vegetable oil
tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
cloves garlic, finely chopped
  1. Place beef in resealable plastic bag or large glass or plastic dish. Mix remaining ingredients; pour over beef. Seal bag or cover dish and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours, turning beef several times to coat.
  2. Heat oven to 425º. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Place beef on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of beef.
  3. Roast uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until thermometer reads 140º (medium-rare doneness). Cover beef loosely with tent of aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes or until thermometer reads 145º. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5º and beef will be easier to carve as juices set up.) Cut beef across grain at slanted angle into thin slices.
