    Pepper Crusted Tenderloin of Beef

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Serves 2 or 3

    List of Ingredients

    1 pound beef tenderloin
    2 tablespoons shallots, minced
    1/2 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
    1/2 tablespoon garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon orange zest
    About 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup pearl onions


    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Immerse the onions in the boiling water for about 2 minutes, then shock with cold water. Cut off the root tip of each onion and squeeze it out of the skin. For convenience, you can also buy a package of frozen pearl onions already prepared.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté for about 2 minutes or until tender. Rub the beef with olive oil. Combine the pepper, salt, garlic, rosemary, and orange zest and pat the mixture on the beef. Increase the heat to high and sear the beef in the pan on all sides. Add the pearl onions and place the skillet directly in the oven. Roast until a thermometer reads 145°F for medium rare. Let stand at least 10 minutes before slicing.
