The high heat of the oven gives the roast a beautiful golden-brown crust without overcooking the interior. The tenderloin is also great at room temperature.

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Transfer beef to prepared sheet, and season all over with 2 tablespoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, rosemary, and thyme.

  • Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of beef registers 125 degrees, 40 to 42 minutes for medium-rare. Tent beef with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes (or up to 2 hours); slice just before serving.

Cook's Notes

For the juiciest beef, cook the tenderloin to the temperature specified, and be sure to let it rest before slicing.

After 40 minutes my roast was still RAW. Ruined my dinner party. Also there is a discrepancy in the herb measurements, one place says tsp, the other TBS. VERY disappointed!
