Around the holidays there never seems to be enough time in the day. Juggling gift shopping, holiday parties, and out of town guests leaves little time (and sanity) to prepare a labor intensive Christmas dinner. This beef tenderloin is one of my go-to dinner party recipes. With minimal ingredients and steps, you can create a perfectly done tenderloin that’s packed with incredible flavor. Grab your meat thermometer and let’s get this holiday meal started!
Holiday Beef Tenderloin
- 3 lbs tenderloin roast
- 1 tbs olive oil
- ⅓ cup greek seasoning
- ⅓ cup coarse ground black pepper
- Heat oven to 425° F. In a small bowl combine Greek seasoning and black pepper. Slightly rub the roast with olive oil. Roll roast in seasoning mixture to cover all surfaces.
- Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert an ovenproof meat thermometer so the tip is centered in the thickest part of the beef. Do not add water or cover.
- Roast in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until desired internal temperature is reached. Remove from the oven. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Allow the roast to rest for 15-20 minutes. Slice and serve.
