"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Rub the tenderloin with olive oil, make about 6 to 8 slits in the meat (just scatter them around so the seasoning is balanced) place a sliver of garlic in each slit and just push it in. Salt & coarse ground pepper the entire tender.

Place on open meat rack in a roaster and do not cover. Bake in a pre-heated oven 425 degrees for 35 minutes. Turn the oven down to 325 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven - set on counter-cover loosely with foil-let set for 25 minutes-slice and serve. I slice mine 3/4 in. thick and serve with horseradish sauce. This is what I call med. to med. rare.
