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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add beef to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned.

Step 3

Combine mustard and garlic in a small bowl. Rub mustard mixture evenly over beef. Combine parsley, rosemary, and thyme in a small bowl. Sprinkle beef evenly with parsley mixture. Place beef on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 26 minutes or until a thermometer registers 135° or until desired degree of doneness. Place tenderloin on a platter; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

This was by far the most delicious beef tenderloin I have ever made. The combination of the dijon, garlic and herbs is smashing! Must try!

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.
