Steps

Beef Tenderloin Roulade

  1. Trim tenderloin of any silverskin and fat. Using filet knife, carefully open tenderloin so that it can be rolled into spiral. Place opened beef onto piece of double plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  2. In medium sauté pan, render bacon. Cook until crispy and remove from pan. Add mushrooms and cook for 1 minute. Add onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent. Deglaze pan with the sherry.
  3. Add salt, pepper, parsley and thyme. Cook for 30 seconds more. Turn off heat and fold in breadcrumbs.
  4. Remove beef from cooler and evenly spread mushroom mixture on surface. Roll beef back into tenderloin shape, making sure to keep as tight as possible. Using butcher’s twine, wrap and tie beef in five locations.
  5. Bake beef in 350°F oven until internal temperature of 130°F is reached. Remove beef from oven and allow to rest 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside for plating.

  2. In mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until well incorporated.

  2. Purée red pepper and rest of wet ingredients in food processor.
  3. Pour red pepper mixture into flour well and begin to fold dry into wet. Continue to fold ingredients until dough forms. Knead dough until firm and consistent texture is achieved.
  4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes.

Hollandaise sauce

  1. Place small pot of water on stove and bring to a boil.
  2. While waiting for water to boil, place all ingredients except butter into small mixing bowl. Whisk to incorporate.
