This was so easy and absolutely wonderful!! I followed the directions exactly and it turned out perfectly. 5 lbs served eight generous servings. Great recipe for a very special occasion.

Tenderloin was perfect! The rub is delicious and would be good on steaks as well. 5 lbs. was a gracious plenty for 6 people, with leftovers. Do not overcook! Served this for Christmas with baked rice, fresh green beans, baked fruit, and scalloped oysters.

Question...Dying to make this recipe for Christmas. Just wondering, recipes says it feeds 8...seems like five pounds is an awful lot of meat! Help me,,quick...thanks.

We have made this twice and both times it was outstanding. We followed the recipe exactly and there were plenty of medium and medium rare pieces to be had! We served a 4.4 pound piece for 8 people who like to eat a lot and we still had a few pieces leftover. Treat yourself to a filet from Whole Foods - you will not be disappointed!

I made this for a Christmas Party last night and it received rave reviews from all. I made 2 tenderloins and cooked one a little longer for those who don't like their beef quite so pink. The tenderloin was served with Creamy Horseradish Sauce which went well with the spicy flavor of the rub. This recipe is a keeper.

My mother in law made this for new years and I immediately had to scramble to find the recipe to save it for myself. Amazing tenderloin and beef seasoning. Compliments the meat and keeps it uber moist. Didn't take very long to marinate at all and it still seemed to permeate through the meat. Also add it all! I was skeptical about nutmeg on beef but it must have done something because none of the tastes were that distinctive but melded perfectly together. Make this! Six 5 star reviews can not steer you wrong
