How To Make Garlic Herb Butter Beef Tenderloin

It’s hard to go wrong with this luscious beef tenderloin. The meat cooks in a simple yet flavorful combination of herbs and garlic.

  • 1tbsporegano,finely chopped
  • 1tbsprosemary,finely chopped
  • 1tspsalt

  1. Prepare the tenderloin by trimming the fat. Cut it in half and tie the roast. Bend the tail in at the end of the roast so that it is tied in even thickness.

  2. Preheat a heavy bottom skillet to medium high heat and add the olive oil. Once the olive oil has reached the smoking point, add the roasts and sear each side for 3 to 4 minutes or until it is golden brown.

  3. Combine the butter, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper.

  4. Place the tenderloin in a roasting pan, heavy bottomed skillet, or baking dish. Spread half of the butter on the roast.

  5. Roast in the oven until the temperature reaches just under 140 degrees F for medium doneness. Remove from the oven and slather the rest of the garlic butter on top and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
