These are approximate times to cook the tenderloins.
Take the times and cut in half, for each side. Seven minutes will be 3 1/2 min per side.
Seven minutes will be rare, nine minutes will be medium, and eleven minutes will be well done.

Letting beef rest after cooking is very important. If you don't, you'll end up with a dry steak. Resting allows the juices to relax back into the meet and not run out on your plate when you cut into it.
