  • 1 beef Tenderloin Roast (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons cracked mixed peppercorns

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Combine seasoning ingredients; press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.
  2. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 425°F oven 45 to 55 minutes for medium rare; 55 to 65 minutes for medium doneness.
