British Tenderloin & Pumpernickel Crostini Recipe

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)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 18 slices pumpernickel bread, halved
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 bunch watercress


  • 1. Rub oil over tenderloin; sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown beef on all sides. Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 25-35 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, horseradish, lemon juice, paprika and remaining salt. Chill until serving.
  • 4. Brush both sides of bread with butter; place on baking sheets. Bake at 425° for 4-6 minutes or until toasted, turning once.
  • 5. Spread with sauce; top with beef. Garnish with watercress sprigs. Yield: 3 dozen.
