British Tenderloin & Pumpernickel Crostini

Use an oven-proof skillet when searing the tenderloin: all the flavorful meat juices stay in the pan while the meat finishes, and it makes for easy clean-up. Recipe published in Taste of Home December/January 2012.

  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 beef tenderloin roast (2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 cup(s) (8 ounces) sour cream

  • 18 slice(s) pumpernickel bread, halved
  • 3 tablespoon(s) butter, melted

  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.
