  • Cooking Directions

    For the tenderloin, remove meat from refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. Preheat oven to 500°F. Fold over thin end of meat and tie with string.

    For the spice rub, in a small bowl, combine spice rub ingredients. Rub meat generously with the spice mixture. Let meat stand for 15 minutes and repeat rub.

    Place meat on a rack in a roasting pan; arrange quartered red onions around meat. Do not cover. Place in oven. Turn oven down to 400°F. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of roast is 130°F for rare or 145°F for medium. Remove from oven; let meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

    For the gravy, in a medium saucepan, combine broth, Worcestershire sauce, coffee crystals, and seasoned salt and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer.

    In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the water and whisk into broth mixture. Cook until gravy has thickened to the consistency of cream. Whisk in butter 1 chunk at a time. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
