Makes 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Directions

  1. Combine the pepper, oil, lemon peel, salt and garlic; rub over tenderloin. Place on a greased rack in a foil-lined roasting pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 45-65 minutes or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees F; medium, 160 degrees F; well-done, 170 degrees F). Cover and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
