This was very easy and delicious. I made it for an evening in, but would be great for a dinner party too. Served with the "Brussels Sprouts with Browned Garlic" recipe.
Seared Beef Tenderloin with Dijon and Herbs
An herb-mustard coating is a classic preparation for beef tenderloin. Add one teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon to the herb mixture, if desired. Serve with roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts for an easy yet special dinner for guests.
