Easy & Elegant Tenderloin Roast Recipe

Easy & Elegant Tenderloin Roast Recipe

I love the simplicity of the recipe. Olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Just add the tenderloin and pop it in the oven. In an hour or so you’ve got an impressive main dish to feed a crowd. This leaves you with more time to visit with family and less time fussing in the kitchen. —Mary Kandell, Huron, Ohio

"I made this for our family Christmas dinner and could not be happier with it! The simple garlic rub was perfect. Served with horseradish cream and sauteed mushrooms. To make the rub I put the whole garlic cloves with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor."
