Garlic, horseradish, and seasonings coat this crusted beef tenderloin recipe, a robust dish that pairs well with a side of creamy mashed potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate the cloves). Coat with cooking spray; wrap in foil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour; cool 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins. Mash garlic pulp, horseradish, salt, basil, thyme, and pepper with a fork until blended.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 4

Trim fat from tenderloin; fold under 3 inches of small end. Rub garlic mixture over roast. Place tenderloin on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Insert meat thermometer into thickest portion of tenderloin. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until thermometer registers 145° (medium-rare) to 160° (medium).

Step 5

Place tenderloin on a platter. Cover and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
