Bistro Beef Loin..

WebMD Recipe from

Tenderloin is the most luxurious cut of beef. Although it’s a fantastic dinner-party dish, leftovers the next day are pure heaven. Trim off any visible silver skin, the translucent, tough membrane lying along the outside curve of the tenderloin.

Bistro Beef Tenderloin

Servings: 12

Yield:12 servings

Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Recipe Ingredients:

  1. 1 3-pound beef tenderloin, trimmed of fat
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  5. 2/3 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as chives, parsley, chervil, tarragon, thyme
  6. 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place herbs on a large plate. Coat the tenderloin evenly with mustard; then roll in the herbs, pressing gently to adhere. Slice and serve.
