Beef Tenderloin

Don't be intimidated by means of its splendor (and size). Beef tenderloin is honestly insanely easy to make, thanks to a marinade made up of substances you probably have already got and fantastically short cook time. If your handiest need to apply rosemary (or thyme), it truly is fine. Just double up on whichever herb you are the usage of. As for the creamy horseradish sauce, don't skip it. We used a combination of yogurt + sour cream, however, mayo could paintings too!
