Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 lb beef tenderloin, trimmed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. In small bowl, mix parsley, basil, thyme, oregano and garlic; set aside.
  • 2
    Spray bottom of roasting pan with cooking spray. Place beef in pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread mustard evenly over beef; pat parsley mixture over mustard. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of beef.
  • 3
    Bake uncovered 35 to 45 minutes or until thermometer reads at least 140°F (for medium-rare doneness).
  • 4
    Place beef on cutting board. Cover loosely with foil; let stand 15 minutes or until thermometer reads 145°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and beef will be easier to carve.) Cut beef into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

  • For medium doneness, bake 45 to 50 minutes or until thermometer reads at least 150°F. Cover; let stand 15 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F.
  • Do some taste-testing of various brands of Dijon mustard. Not only do they vary in color, from bright yellow to brownish yellow, but their flavors vary as well.
