British Tenderloin & Pumpernickel Crostini Recipe
I like to use an oven-proof skillet when searing the tenderloin. This way all the flavorful meat juices stay in the pan while the meat finishes, and it makes for easy clean-up! —Sharon Tipton, Winter Garden, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing YIELD:36 servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 beef tenderloin roast (2 pounds)

- 2. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 25-35 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
