Peppered Beef Tenderloin Roast Recipe

Peppered Beef Tenderloin Roast Recipe

A pepper rub gives this moist tender beef a bit of a zippy taste. It takes just minutes to prepare, and the meat slices well. Lining the baking pan with foil makes it a breeze to clean up, too. -Denise Bitner Reedsville, Pennsylvania
