servings

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
  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.
