Searing does not hold in the juices as once thought, but it can add some nice, deep caramelized flavor, so I usually do it.

Additionally, most "roasting" recipes aren't really roasting, they're baking, so the temps aren't hot enough to give you that caramelization. "Roasting" needs to be at least around 450 degrees or more with some fat, which will caramelize for you.

If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Mom puts the roast in the oven at 500 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn it down to 350 for the remaining time till done.
She also uses Kitchen Bouquet as a basting before she puts it in the oven.
The outside sears nicely and no presearing in a pan is necessary.

Before roasting, I slather my trimmed and tied roast with a mixture of Dijon mustard, garlic, brown sugar and a bit of olive oil. Makes a great crust!

I don't tie mine... leaving it untied allows you to make the thicker part medium rare & have the more-cooked ends for people who prefer it more done.

And actually, if the skinny little tip gets burnt I like to cut it off & munch on it like one of those overcooked, brown potato chips...

I won't cook a tenderloin any way but rare to med. rare...
If anyone wants well done, I'm more than happy to let them use the microwave!

Gross. That's just mean. It's not the cook's job to impose his preferences on the diners... Would it make you feel justified if your guests just didn't eat your tenderloin at all because it was cooked to your preference instead of theirs? If so, that's pretty selfish.

When I cook for people I do it because I want to treat them to something they'll love, not educate them on how they "should" be eating or what they "should" like. Most people will try a sample of something different from what they're used to & maybe they'll like it better! But to say you won't make it a certain way? I hope the smilie at the end of your,post indicates that you're just being facetious & if so I sincerely apologize for coming down so hard.

All you have to do is ask people what they like. I'd be very hurt if someone invited me to a meal & then told me they didn't care what I liked or disliked. It's not as though you're having to make a separate meal in this case. Have a little empathy, man!

WOW!I meant that as a lighthearted comment on cooking beef tenderloin to well done...
(hence the at the end)...
sure never expected that reaction...

P.S. I don't know anyone who likes well done tenderloin...
and if I did, I would have something else for dinner (like a well marbled ribeye) when they were guests of mine...
