There are two kinds of unique meals– those that take all day to make and need precise attention to detail lest you mess them up, and those that are easy and fairly sure-fire, however are still tasty crowd pleasers.

You can guess which one I prefer.

Here is an ideal example of the latter– a beef tenderloin roast. Picture a filet mignon, but as roast, one that you slice to serve, tender like a prime rib, but lean. Yes it is a rather pricey cut of beef; it is not an every day roast, but one for an unique someone or event.

My good friend Kathi showed me this way of preparing beef tenderloin a few days ago. She likes preparing it for catering events due to the fact that it holds up well, is scrumptious even at room temperature level, and everyone loves it.

Rather than serving the roast with a gravy, we surround it with mushrooms that have been sautéed in the roast browning pan with some butter, shallots, garlic, and herbs.
