Cook Time45 min
Prep Time15 min
Yields12 serv.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 pounds beef, tenderloin steaks – trimmed of fat
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt, Kosher
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, black ground
  • 2/3 cup herbs, mixed, fresh – (such as chives, parsley, chervil, tarragon, thyme)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard, Dijon

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Tie kitchen string around tenderloin in three places so it doesn’t flatten while roasting. Rub the tenderloin with oil; pat on salt and pepper. Place in a large roasting pan.
  • Roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 140 degrees F for medium-rare, about 45 minutes, turning two or three times during roasting to ensure even cooking. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest for 10 minutes. Remove the string.
  • Place herbs on a large plate. Coat the tenderloin evenly with mustard; then roll in the herbs, pressing gently to adhere. Slice and serve.
