Horseradish-Crusted Beef Tenderloin

Ingredients

  • 2 LB Beef Tenderloin, trimmed (preferably center-cut*)
  • 2 TBSP Horseradish, prepared
  • 1 TBSP Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 TSP Dijon Mustard
  • ½ TSP Kosher Salt
  • ½ TSP Spice of Life
  • 2 TSP Ground Black Pepper

* Ask your butcher to remove the extra fat, silver skin and the chain (a lumpy, fat-covered piece of meat that runs along the tenderloin). If you buy untrimmed tenderloin, start with about 2½ LBS, then use a sharp knife to trim the silver skin, fat and chain
