This is one of the most easiest sunday roast recipe that one could ever wish for. Beef tenderloin is one of the finest cuts of the beef that cooks easily and holds on to the juice and flavour of the dish intact during the roasting process.


  • 3 pounds beef  tenderloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, dijon mustard & sprigs of fresh thyme.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). If roast is untied, tie at 3 inch intervals with cotton twine. Place roast in pan, and season with salt, garlic powder, dijon mustard and pepper.Make slight incisions on the top of the meat to place the thyme leave looking like a bouquet. Add seasonings to taste.

Roast in oven for 60 minutes (20 minutes per pound).

Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
