Louise's Herbed Beef Tenderloin

This is a simple recipe for a tender and well-seasoned beef tenderloin.

Loved it! The herbs flavor came through. Very basic and easy. Cooked at 350 for about 1-1/2 hours. Took out at 130 degrees and let rest. Inside was pink, outside well done and moist.

I had a 4 lb. beef tenderloin and 6 people for dinner. I didn't want a 2 step process(sear and roast). I mixed the olive oil and all the ingredients togetherand spread like a paste. Added salt and peppe first. I cooked it for 50 minutes. It was fabulous. Medium rare from edge to edge and very flavorful.
