Beef tenderloin is a very tender cut of beef. It should be prepared in such a manner where it will not dry out nor shrink too much during cooking. Crock-pot cooking is one such way of preparing beef tenderloin.1) Rinse the roast, pat dry.2)In a large skillet or Dutch oven, brown the meat on all sides in 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil.3)If required cut the roast in half after it has been brown to fit in the crock-pot. Waiting until the roast has been browned before cutting it will keep it from drying out, especially on the cut ends.4) Place roast in the crock-pot. If it was a must to cut the roast, make sure both halves are resting on the bottom of the crock-pot, not one on top of the other.5) Mix the brown gravy and mix with enough water to thoroughly dissolve the mix. Pour the brown gravy mixture over the meat. Stir the meat and brown gravy mixture well.6)Add enough water to thoroughly cover the meat.7)Add the onion whole without chopping or cutting it in halve.8)When meat is done, remove it to a serving platter, allow it to rest for 15 minutes, then carve.
