1 tablespoon salt

½ tablespoon black pepper

2 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature

45 pound whole beef tenderloin, tied


In a small bowl, stir together the salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder.  Set aside.

Slather the tenderloin on all sides with butter and then pat the salt mixture evenly on the meat.  Be sure to turn the meat to season all sides.

Allow the meat to come to room temperature – at least 60 minutes.

Place the beef on a baking sheet.

Roast in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

Remove the tenderloin from the oven and wrap the entire tenderloin in foil. 

Allow the beef to rest for 20 minutes.
