Easy Beef Tenderloin


1 beef tenderloin (5 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons sea salt
1-1/2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper


Preheat oven to 425°.
Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. In a small bowl, mix the oil, garlic, salt and pepper; rub over roast.
Roast until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°), 45-65 minutes. Remove from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
