Today we celebrated Thanksgiving with Andy's family. His parents, sister, brother-in-law, our two nieces, and nephew came for dinner. We had Beef Tenderloin with Blue Cheese Butter, my mother-in-law's famous sweet potatoes, Slow-Cooker Green Beans, Rosemary Biscuits, and Pumpkin Cheesecake. We love Beef Tenderloin. It's very easy to make and super impressive! (The only thing you need to know is that it is a pricey cut of meat; Costco usually has the best price.) Enjoy!
1 (4-lb.) beef tenderloin
1. Drizzle beef tenderloin with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on all sides. Place in a roasting pan.
2. Bake at 425° for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer inserted in center registers 140° (medium). Remove from oven, and let stand for 20 minutes before slicing.
