What Is a Beef Tenderloin?

Beef tenderloin is cut from the beef loin, which is part of the steer’s back. The whole loin runs along both sides of spine, beginning at the bottom in front and extending to the tailbone in back.

The tenderloin is not a muscle that’s often exercised, so it tends to be quite tender and lean. Very little fat is on the exterior of this cut because it comes from an area where there simply isn’t much room for fat deposit.

Beef tenderloin is a particularly choice cut of beef and it’s popular at fine restaurants. While you can find this cut already trimmed, it’s more economical to buy an un-trimmed piece and trim your own before cooking.

What Temperature Should Beef Tenderloin Be Cooked to?

The best method for cooking beef tenderloin is to medium-rare, which is achieved by cooking the meat to about 130°F – 132°F and allowing it to rest for 10 minutes.

BEEF DONENESS GUIDE

  • RARE: 120˚F TO 125˚F
  • MEDIUM RARE: 130˚F TO 135˚F
  • MEDIUM TO MEDIUM-WELL: 140˚F TO 145˚F
  • WELL: 150˚F+

Keep in mind that these temperatures account for the fact that the temperature will continue to rise about 5 degrees while the meat rests.

Storage and Reheating Instructions

To store, place any extra portions in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, wrap sliced tenderloin in foil and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
