Beef Tenderloin

I'm having about 30 guests over for Christmas dinner, and I'm serving the easiest thing on the planet...beef tenderloin. Now, I'll be the first one to tell you that I'm not much of a cook. I love experimenting in the kitchen, but I'm more of a baker than a cook. So when I do find a recipe I love, or learn to cook something impressive and worth bragging about, I tend to go back to it.

This is, hands down, the best meal I know how to cook.

And to beat it all, there are only three ingredients. What's not to love?

You can find the recipe I use here. Go forth and cook. It is so worth the effort.

Don't even bother with cooking this without a meat thermometer. Be warned ahead of time. You don't want to over-cook this dish--especially because it isn't cheap.

I also couldn't do a blog post on beef tenderloin without mentioning the Pioneer Woman's version. The entire post is worth reading--but be warned--it will make you salavate.

Heaven on a fork, indeed...
