Make Ahead Roast Beef Tenderloin

Roast beef tenderloin is a special occasion dish that’s perfect to serve during the holidays. It is the most tender cut of beef and always a crowd pleaser. 

With this recipe you can roast the meat a few hours ahead of time and store it in a cooler until you are ready to serve it. It will hold its temperature. This works great if you are entertaining and plan to serve dinner immediately following a church service or program.

Horseradish sauce or grainy mustard make great condiments.
