Herbed and Spiced Roasted Beef Tenderloin

Herbed and Spiced Roasted Beef Tenderloin

"Here's a special-occasion roast enhanced with classic seasonings. Roasting two large ends of tenderloin instead of one whole piece ensures even cooking. (The meat needs to be coated with its aromatic rub, then chilled for at least six hours before roasting.)"

Instead of blending in the food processor, I put everything in a bowl and just rubbed over the beef tenderloin. Left out the orange peel and substituted some orange juice in its place; didn't ha...

I made this recipe for Christmas 2009. My only problem was with the roast time, it took longer than 35 minutes to roast, approximately 1 1/2 hrs for 2 roasts. They came out perfect. My guests ju...
