horseradish crusted tenderloinOne of the many advanced features of the Wolf Gourmet countertop oven is the integrated temperature probe. Then oft-used “look and see” approach is not always accurate, as we all have probably experienced biting into a piece of dried-out turkey on Thanksgiving. There’s no real secret — the way to achieve the best tasting mustard glazed roast chicken, leg of lamb, or herb-crusted beef tenderloin is cooking to an exact temperature.

When cooking a large cut of meat such as the recipe for beef tenderloin below, ROAST mode is a given. Coupled with the probe feature, you’ll get a delicious crust and a perfectly cooked interior. Because the probe is integrated, you don’t have to fuss with stringing a wire through the oven door opening and trying to keep it from sliding off the counter onto the floor as you take the tenderloin out (can you tell we’ve been there?). Instant-read thermometers require you to open the oven, which lets heat out and can increase the cooking temperature. Our probe is connected inside the oven so the door can remain closed during the entire cooking process. Simply insert probe end into the tenderloin (we’ll tell you the best place in a moment), use the plug end to slide the cover out of the way, and insert it into the jack. This can be accomplished with one hand, which leaves your other hand free to slide the tray into the oven.

Temperature displayThe probe temperature is set from the LCD display. Press the Probe button and use the dial to set the desired temperature. Once the temperature is set, the display will alternate the set temperature and the probe temperature once it reaches 100°F.

As a rule, the probe should be inserted approximately one inch into the thickest part of the food. Ensure the probe does not touch bone, fat, or any part of the oven interior or any heating elements. For beef tenderloin, insert the probe into the center of the roast. It’s best to insert horizontally from one of the ends and set to 125˚F for perfect medium-rare.

Think outside the box when it comes to the temperature probe, it can also be used for baking breads or cakes. Think fresh, warm cinnamon bread baked to perfection all the way through. No more gooey-centered whole wheat bread. Trust us, the probe is for much more than roasts.

Ready to try it? This recipe for Beef Tenderloin with Herb-Horseradish Crust and Red Wine Pan Sauce is very simple and great for entertaining or even a weeknight meal. The countertop oven easily holds this 3-pound roast, and, in fact, you can even fit a 6-pound roast diagonally in the roasting pan. The oven’s advanced convection helps you get the meat and horseradish crust beautifully browned while the probe will tell you when the meat is done to your liking.

Ingredients
Beef Tenderloin
  • 2 garlic cloves one minced, one smashed
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus one teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 3-pound beef tenderloin trimmed of fat/silver skin, tied with butcher's twine
  • 1 small yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot thinly sliced
Horseradish Crust
  • 6 tablespoons jarred white horseradish rinsed and squeezed dry
  • 2 tablespoons plain bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Red Wine Jus
  • 2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter softened
Instructions
  • Season the tenderloin: Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and heat set the oven to 425°F CONVECTION/ROAST. In a small bowl whisk together the minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and the salt, and pepper. Rub the meat with the herb mixture and set the roast aside while the oven heats up. (The tenderloin can be marinated and refrigerated up to 1 day ahead.)
  • Make the horseradish crust: Whisk together the horseradish, breadcrumbs, mustard, parsley, remaining thyme, rosemary, olive oil, and the salt. Set the mixture aside.
  • Broil the meat: Combine the onion, carrot, smashed garlic clove, and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in the WOLF baking pan and toss to combine. Push the vegetables off to the side so that the tenderloin can sit directly on the baking pan. Broil until the meat until it begins to brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the roast from the oven. Spread the horseradish mixture evenly over the top and sides of the meat, pressing it into place. Insert the probe into the center of one end of the meat so that it runs horizontally through the meat. Place the pan in the oven and insert the probe into the oven jack. Close the oven door and set probe temperature to 125°F (for medium-rare) and roast until the temperature gauge chimes, about 15 minutes. Remove pan then transfer the tenderloin to a cutting board and cover loosely with foil.
  • Move the oven rack to the top position and set the oven to BROIL/HIGH and wait for the oven-ready chime to sound.
  • Make the pan sauce: Pour the beef broth and red wine over the roasted vegetables and then place the pan under the broiler. Simmer until the liquid is reduced slightly, about 10 minutes. Strain the sauce through a fine-mesh sieve and into a small bowl and whisk in the butter.
  • Remove the twine and slice the tenderloin into ¼-inch-thick slices. Serve immediately with the jus.
