Tasty Tuesday: Mustard-Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin

Mustard-Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin

Wake up your taste buds with this delightful beef.

Serves: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes

1 four-pound beef tenderloin, trimmed of fat and tied with kitchen string 
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 
1 tablespoon rosemary, fresh 
2 large cloves garlic 
5 tablespoons bread crumbs 
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard 

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Salt and pepper the tenderloin. Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a shallow roasting pan. Place the tenderloin in the pan. Roast for 30 minutes.
Finely mince the rosemary and garlic. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining olive oil, rosemary, garlic and bread crumbs. Salt and pepper to taste.
Remove tenderloin from oven. Using a pastry brush, spread the tenderloin with the mustard and pat the crumb mixture evenly over the mustard. Return the tenderloin to the oven and roast for another 25 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 125 degrees.
Remove tenderloin from oven and rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove kitchen string. Slice and serve.
