BEST EVER BEEF TENDERLOIN
beef tenderloin | 3 lbs | trimmed + tied + patted dry
fresh rosemary | 1 sprig | leaves only, minced
fresh sage | 3-6 leaves | leaves only, minced
fresh garlic | 4-8 cloves | grated
avocado oil | 4 tbsp
chili oil | 2 tbsp
maple syrup | 2 tbsp brown sugar | 2 tbsp
coarse sea salt | 2 tbsp
cracked black pepper | 1/2 tsp
white pepper powder | 1/2 tsp
ginger powder | 1/4 tsp
onion powder | 1/4 tsp
clove powder | 1 dash
Combine all of your ingredients (aside from the tenderloin) in a large bowl and mix until consistent.
Place your tenderloin into the bowl and rub the entire surface area with the seasoning mix until evenly coated.
After coating in the marinade, let the tenderloin rest in the bowl for one hour at room temp
Pre-heat oven to 550 degrees.
Just before transferring it to the roasting pan, rub the tenderloin to redistribute the marinade evenly.
Place the roasting pan in the oven uncovered for 15 minutes before checking the internal temperature.
As soon as the internal temperature of the tenderloin reads 120 degrees, remove the pan from the oven and immediately cover it gently with foil.
Allow the tenderloin to rest for approximately 15 minutes while internal temperature rises to medium-rare.
Carve and serve immediately - or if serving later, do not cover the tenderloin upon removing it from the original roast, and then place tenderloin back into a 550 degree oven for 3-5 minutes before carving.
