Ask the butcher to break down the beef for you. The tenderloin should be ready for preparations right out of the package.

The main point to consider when preparing a beef tenderloin for roasting is that in order for it to cook evenly, it should be the same circumference from end to end. There will be one side of the tenderloin a good bit smaller. Tuck about 3 inches of the smallest part of the beef under, creating a relatively even thickness for the entire piece of beef.

Place the beef on a lightly greased rack on a foil-lined half sheet pan. Tuck about 3 inches of the smallest part of the beef under, creating a relatively even thickness for the entire piece of beef. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness is reached. Remove from the oven & let stand for 20 minutes. Begin gauging the beef temperature on the lower time provided. Check it every 5 to 10 minutes afterwards until the desired temperature is reached.  Look to Cooking Classics: Peppercorn Beef Tenderloin for additional photos, the recipe & instruction.
