Slow Roasted Beef Tenderloin with garlic, rosemary and mushrooms is a delightful meal perfect for a weekend dinner or special meal.
Want juicy roasts? Let them sit before and after cooking.
Thick cuts of beef and pork, like roasts, should always be left out at room temperature for a period of time before cooking for even cooking and juicier meats. Depending on the thickness, 20-30 minutes is sufficient and of course be sure to check for doneness with an instant-read thermometer.
And then after cooking, allow the roast to rest outside of the oven for another 15 minutes to allow the meat to relax and the juices to be reabsorbed.
