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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2012

"I have made this recipe twice and both time with rave reviews! I put whole peppercorns in a plastic bag or between pieces of wax paper and crushed with a rolling pin. A lot of work, but worth it. I also rubbed the beef with the mix and let sit in the fridge for several hours. You can't go wrong with tenderloin!"

"This was my first time preparing tenderloin and it was for a large crowd. It took forever to grind all the pepper with a hand grinder. Definitely would recommend getting that done ahead of time. I did receive many compliments. Everyone seemed to really enjoy this entree."
