Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at the California Beef Council!

It’s the holiday season and whether you’re hosting a dinner party for friends or a Christmas dinner with family, a beef tenderloin is an impressive main course for your dinner!

For this recipe, I rubbed the beef tenderloin with a peppery, balsamic herb rub then finished the tenderloin with a horseradish herb butter and an amazing horseradish gorgonzola cream sauce (seriously, I could eat that sauce with a spoon!)

You can serve the cream sauce right over the tenderloin or on the side.

When looking for a center cut beef tenderloin, talk to your butcher. I asked the butcher at my local grocery store and he was able to go to the back and cut the perfect one for me, that you now see pictured in this post!

Roasting the herb crusted beef tenderloin in the oven low and slow allows for the flavors of the balsamic herb rub to cook into the beef. You’re also able to gauge the internal temperature of the beef tenderloin better when cooking at a lower temperature so you’re less likely to overcook your tenderloin.
