I made this for our Christmas dinner and it was the star of the show! This recipe proves that simple doesn't mean plain in any way. Served with my Yorkshire pudding, oven roasted potatoes, green beans and creamed radishes, and steamed plum pudding, this recipe made the traditional English Christmas dinner exceptional! Thanks so much for a great recipe!
PS I did end up cooking the beef longer than stated in the recipe (and in the microwave as well) as I suspect that the refrigerator we stored the tenderloin in froze the meat. In the end, it still worked well since the meat was nicely browned on the outside from the regular oven- it was hard to get the internal temperature just right cooking in the microwave(in fact, it shot up to 172 pretty quick and we are more of the medium rare persuasion.) Next time I will take the meat out and let it sit on the countertop an hour prior to cooking to bring it to room temperature.
