Roasted Balsamic Beef Tenderloin
This is my absolute go-to for a party beef dish. Like Ina says, it's perfect every time. And she's not lying. Anyone can make this and look like a pro!
- 3 lb Filet of beef tenderloin
- 2 T dijon mustard
- 2 T good aged balsamic vinegar
- 1 t salt
- 1 T freshly cracked coarse pepper
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil
Tie tenderloin with cooking string about 3-4 times to keep circumference same for even cooking
Combine the mustard, vinegar, and salt in a small bowl. Spread the mixture on the filet and brush it evenly over the top and sides. Sprinkle the cracked pepper evenly all over the meat.
Roast the filet for 30 minutes exactly for medium-rare (25 minutes for rare and 35 minutes for medium). Remove the pan from the oven, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and allow the beef to rest on the pan for 10 minutes. Slice and serve hot or warm.
I buy my beef filet from Costco. Make sure you get the best cut, with muscle peeled off. They tend to be around 4-5 lbs each, so I will trim a few inches off each side and freeze that part. Otherwise, it's too large for a standard baking sheet.
