    1 ½ tbsp. Gustare Vita olive oil
    2 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, chopped

    1 tbsp. Gustare Vita olive oil
    ¼ c. shallot, chopped
    1 ¾ c. cremini mushrooms, chopped
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee no-salt-added beef broth
    2 clove(s) garlic, minced
    3 c. fresh spinach, chopped

    ½ tsp. lemon zest
    ⅛ tsp. kosher salt

    Things To Grab

    • Large skillet
    • Paper towels
    • Roasting pan with rack
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • 100-percent cotton kitchen string
    • Meat thermometer


    1. Let beef tenderloin stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, prepare Spinach-Mushroom Stuffing: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cremini mushrooms; cook 10 minutes. Add beef broth and garlic; simmer until liquid evaporates. Stir in spinach, prosciutto, lemon zest, kosher salt, and black pepper. Cook until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and cool.

    3. Pat tenderloin dry. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a roasting rack; place in a roasting pan. Open tenderloin so it lies flat. Spoon stuffing down the center. Fold tenderloin together; tie with kitchen string. Rub a mixture of olive oil, thyme, parsley, salt, and black pepper over roast. Place on prepared rack. Roast, uncovered 30 to 40 minutes or until medium-rare (130 degrees). Let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Garnish with additional thyme and drizzle with balsamic glaze, if desired.
