    The balsamic killed the sauce for me... and generally I am a big balsamic fan. Found it way too overpowering for such a gorgeous piece of meat.

    To serve more people, I'd recommend cooking multiple roasts, 2-3, as opposed to one large one and leaving on in a few minutes longer for those wanting a more well done piece. Then either make the sauce in multiple pans or after deglazing, combine it all in one pan. It will take a little longer for the sauce to reduce. Grainy and smooth mustards worked wonderfully and was well received even by those that weren't mustard fans.

    I made a 3.5lb tenderloin last night and it came out perfectly. It was too long to fit into any of my pans straight, so I browned it on a grill pan and then put it into my largest pan to cook in the oven. After adding the shallots, I used a probe and cooked until the temperature reached 145 deg F, just under 20 minutes. The center was medium and the ends closer to medium-well.

    I'd like to make this recipe for my family for Christmas, 2008. How can I up this recipe to feed 14. I assume I will need at least a 7 lb tenderloin and am uncertain how to calculate the cooking time. In addition, will the end pieces be more medium well than medium? This would work nicely because one family member wants everything cremated:) Thanks in advance
