    Beef tenderloin is one of my favorite “fancy dinners” to make at home. In the grand scheme of things, it is relatively simple and is, of course, delicious.

    I will get straight to it. With this recipe, there is, of course, the price to consider. It is not an inexpensive cut of meat. However, I can generally get a decent deal on a large tenderloin at Costco.

    Making the whole tenderloin and then dividing it into four meals – one to eat that night and three to freeze is my game plan typically. This helps bring the price per plate down and your tastebuds do the happy dance more often.

    The tenderloin gives it all away in the name. It is a large, long cut of meat that is meltingly tender. Once sliced into steaks, this cut of meat is known as filet mignon. Hence the somewhat hefty price tag.

    While delicious with little more than a sprinkle of salt and pepper, I like to perk a tenderloin up a bit. Doing this will give it a nice crust or bark when it comes out of the oven.

    Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio

    Coffee Crusted Beef Tenderloin became a favorite after my visit to Certified Angus Beef last year. Chef Tony and I whipped up beef carpaccio, but first rubbed it down with coffee and granulated honey. It was a magical combination.

    I’d had Kona coffee-rubbed steaks before, but never tried this at home with a tenderloin. Turns out, good coffee + good tenderloin + an awesome meal!

    For Coffee Crusted Beef Tenderloin, I used a small batch of extra strong coffee after making my Mocha Cream Pie and served it with Cranberry Relish, although hubby preferred Horseradish Cream Sauce and Copycat Peter Luger Steak Sauce.

    A fluffy Horseradish Cream Sauce is the perfect, light sauce for Prime Rib or to slather on a roast beef sandwich!

    Before you start, please make sure you know how to tie your roast! If you are still a bit intimidated, you can also ask the person behind the meat counter to help you out with it. They are most often happy to oblige.

    It may seem like a throwaway step, but I can assure you it is not. A nice tenderloin is not an evenly shaped piece of meat.

    If you don’t tie it to create an even shape, it will cook unevenly and no one wants to cut into a beautiful piece of meat that is overcooked.

    Another step that should not be skipped under any circumstance, is letting the meat rest once it is out of the oven before carving into it. This allows the juices to reabsorb back into the meat giving you and your guests a juicy bite.
