Roast beef tenderloin is a special occasion dish that’s perfect to serve during the holidays. It is the most tender cut of beef and always a crowd-pleaser.

With this recipe, you can roast the meat a few hours ahead of time and store it in a cooler until you are ready to serve it. It will hold its temperature. This works great if you are entertaining and plan to serve dinner immediately following a church service or program. It also works well if you are bringing a dish to a friend or family member’s house. Tenderloin works well as an entree, but can also be served as a heavy appetizer with soft rolls. Horseradish sauce or grainy mustard make great condiments.
