The Taste of Home Cookbook
New Revised 2nd Edition

I like to serve this main course with green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and seven-layer salad for a special holiday dinner. The garlic sauce is also good with pork or poultry.
Beth Taylor, Chapin, South Carolina
Prep: 25 min.
Bake: 25 min. + standing
Yield: 12 servings.


· 1 jar (8 ounces) Dijon mustard, divided
· 10 garlic cloves, peeled, divided
· 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns, coarsely crushed, divided
· 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
· 1 beef tenderloin (4 to 5 pounds), halved
· 2 cups heavy whipping cream
· 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream


1) In a blender, combine half of the mustard, eight garlic cloves and 1 tablespoon peppercorns; cover and process for 1 minute, scraping the sides occasionally. Add 1 tablespoon oil; process until a paste forms. Spread over beef.

2) In a large skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Brown beef, one piece at a time, on all sides. Place in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray.

3) Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25-45 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove to a warm serving platter. Let stand for 10-15 minutes.

4) Meanwhile, mince the remaining garlic. In a saucepan, combine garlic, whipping cream, sour cream and remaining mustard and peppercorns. Cook and stir over low heat until heated through. Slice beef; serve with the sauce.
