Turn heat down to 400 degrees and roast without basting on center rack until meat thermometer reads 130 degrees for rare or 145 degrees for medium.

    Very Good
    It doesn't say how much coffee to use, and for us, that was a problem. We made it with pork tenderloin because beef tenderloin was not available. Honestly, this wasn't my favorite flavor - but I would try it again with less coffee and cayenne, on beef this time. - 7/31/11

    I halved the recipe, used ground coffee on tenderloin steaks, and pan fried them. OH my!! Loved it! I'd drop the splenda amount as i like heat over sweet, but great recipe! - 9/11/10
