  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each finely chopped fresh basil, oregano, parsley, and thyme

Spring Vegetables with Roasted Beef Tenderloin

Cary Neff | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

Meat doesn't have to be the main dish to make an impact. For this company-special dish, pair the ultralean tenderloin and vegetables with a mushroom risotto or spring salad mix.

  1. Combine wine or vinegar and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Heat an ovenproof, medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to lightly coat pan bottom. Season each filet with salt, pepper, and herbs. Add filets to the pan and sear on one side for 2 minutes. Turn and place pan in the oven to complete cooking, about 8 minutes for medium-rare.
  4. Remove filets from oven, slice each one horizontally into four round medallions, and place on individual serving plates. Arrange 1/2-cup vegetables on each plate. Drizzle 1 tablespoon wine reduction over each serving of beef and vegetables.
