Balsamic Dijon-Glazed Beef Tenderloin With Herb Sauce

Balsamic Dijon-Glazed Beef Tenderloin With Herb Sauce

This tenderloin roast recipe will leave you with a few pounds of tender, glazed beef slices, and probably leftovers, too! If you’re serving this for a family of 4, you will probably have leftovers for lunches or even breakfast the next day. With a preparation time of 15 minutes, you can slide the roast into the oven and have dinner ready in less than one hour.

If possible, opt for grass-fed beef. Grass-fed beef can be more expensive, but budget-friendly, grass-fed cuts are available; joining a meat CSA can reduce the cost, too. Purchasing grass-fed beef provides a plethora of nutrients that aren’t as available in conventionally-raised cows, like conjugated linoleic acid, Omega-3s and Vitamin K2.

When the roast is finished cooking, allow it to rest for 10-12 minutes. Slice into the thickness you desire and serve with the zesty Herb Sauce. If you have leftovers, place into a tightly sealed glass container and refrigerate or freeze for another day.
