FOR A COLD OR HOT SUMMER SUPPER
Buy a whole tenderloin of beef.
Set your oven to 350 degrees.
Rub the tenderloin with salt, fresh ground pepper, a good Dijon mustard.
Get a large roasting pan and drizzle a good olive oil all over it.
Turn the fire on the stove up to medium high and then sauté as much fresh garlic as you like. I usually sauté about 20 cloves of garlic until they are golden brown.
Put the whole tenderloin on top of the garlic and brown all sides of the tenderloin.
After it’s browned, put the whole pan with the garlic and the tenderloin into the hot 350 degrees oven and shut the door and don’t open it for 35 Minutes.
Take the tenderloin out of the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes for a medium rare tenderloin.
Slice it and serve with small rolls and Dijon mustard for a room temperature summer dinner or picnic.
