Foolproof and perfect color from the center to the edge every time. My new go-to method.For years I used the high heat method with tenderloins (400F for 25-30') until I tried Lynch's way. The high heat is quick, but it can wreck an expensive tenderloin if you don't know what you are doing and have a questionable oven, plus it overcooks the tail, even if you tuck it.
I made the recipe for the first time for Christmas. I followed the recipe exactly, and there were rave reviews all around. It was easy, tasty, and perfectly cooked.
I made this for Christmas Eve dinner. Declicious!! I usually cook tenderloin at 350 so was a little unsure about the lower temp, but the slow cook method worked very well. The thyme gave off a delicious aroma when taken out of the oven which was icing on the cake. I will make this again.
This is about as foolproof as you can get. I catered for many years, as this is the easiest way to go. The only extra thing I do is put it on a hot hot grill for 1 minute a side go give it the grill flavour. The most common comment I get is" it looks just like the picture in the cookbook"
