Here's how to cook a tender, melt-in-your-mouth, whole filet mignon in under an hour.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
- 1 (5 lb.) trimmed Stew's Naked Whole Beef Tenderloin, tied
- 3 Tbsp. Canola Oil
- 1 Tbsp. Stew's Freshly Chopped Garlic
- 1 Tbsp. Stew's Kosher Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Stew's Fine Ground Black Pepper
- Stew's Horseradish Sauce, for serving
Remove tenderloin from fridge 30 minutes before cooking and let sit loosely wrapped in butcher paper at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Oil a roasting pan with 2 Tbsp. canola oil.
Place the tenderloin in the roasting pan and rub with the remaining oil. Sprinkle on the garlic and rub over the tenderloin.
Season with the salt and pepper and place in the roasting pan.
Place in the oven and roast until meat reaches medium-rare (135°F), about 45 minutes.
Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Cut and discard twine then cut meat crosswise into ½-in. slices.
Plate and serve with horseradish sauce.
