Beef Tenderloin Roast Recipe

Beef tenderloin is a simple way to dress up a holiday dinner. This impressive entree is actually easy to make because it bakes in the oven unattended, allowing you to prepare other parts of the meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Bake: 45 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 cup beef broth


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, garlic, pepper, garlic salt and onion salt; brush over tenderloin. Place in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 45 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°)
  • 2. Remove tenderloin from pan; let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, add broth to pan drippings, stirring to loosen browned bits; heat through. Serve with sliced beef. Yield: 12 servings.

"Outstanding! This was so simple and yet so flavorful! I added a tablespoon of olive oil to the mustard crust. I did not have garlic and onion salt so I used granulated onion and garlic and then added a pinch of Sel Gris sea salt. The meat was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it. Absolutely a new favorite in our house."

"Made this again and added a couple tbsp of BBQ sauce, omitted the beef broth. EXCELLENT! My tenderloin was smaller so it only needed 22 min at 400."
