  • 4-6 pound beef tenderloin trimmed and tied
  • salt and pepepr
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Garlic Herb Butter

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon thyme finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon oregano finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Prepare the tenderloin by trimming the fat. Cut it in half and tie the roast. Bend the tail in at the end of the roast so that it is tied in even thickness.
  2. Preheat a heavy bottom skillet to medium high heat and add the olive oil. Once the olive oil has reached the smoking point, add the roasts and sear each side for 3-4 minutes or until it is golden brown.
  3. To make the garlic butter spread: Combine the butter, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. Place the tenderloin in a roasting pan, heavy bottomed skillet, or baking dish. Spread half of the butter on the roast.
  4. Roast until the temperature reaches just under 140 for medium doneness. Remove from the oven and slather the rest of the garlic butter on top and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
