Roast Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce

Roast Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce

This roast beef tenderloin looks glamorous and tastes amazing, yet it’s practically foolproof. The meat gets its deeply browned exterior in the oven at a single temperature; no pre-searing or fussing with different temperatures necessary. Even better: The deeply flavoured, thyme-infused red wine sauce can be made days ahead, so there’s no last-minute panic when it comes time to serve.
