Beef Tenderloin

For some reason I was very nervous I wasn't going to make this right. I honestly don't know why as this was so incredibly easy. This was probably one of the best dishes I ever made!

Prep
Cook
Serves 5people
Ingredients
3
(4 lb) whole beef tenderloin
1
tbsp kosher salt
1 1/2
tsp black pepper
1/2
tbsp sugar
1/4
cup olive oil
1
tbsp butter
Directions
1.
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Trim the excess fat from the tenderloin as desired.
2.
In a medium bowl, combine salt, pepper, sugar and 1/4 cup olive oil. Use a basting brush to cover the tenderloin with the mixture.
3.
Heat a heavy skillet over high heat and add the butter. Sear the tenderloin, about 1-1 1/2 minutes on each side, until brown.
4.
Place the meat on a roasting pan with a rack and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the beef is 125 degrees for medium rare. Let the meat set for about 10 minutes-it will continue cooking slightly. Slice the meat into serving pieces.
