Instructions Checklist

  • Preheat a large skillet over high heat. Pour in the oil, and heat until smoking. Sear the tenderloin roast in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove to the roasting pan when done. While the roast is searing, place the garlic, mustard, avocado, and steak seasoning into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Coat the seared roast all over with the avocado mixture.

  • Roast in preheated oven until the tenderloin has reached your desired degree of doneness, about 40 minutes for medium.

This was very easy! We used only 1/2 tenderloin and halfed the recipe. Then the "rub" we used half and left the rest fresh for dipping after the meat was cooked. Also cut the cooking time down to 35min. It was wonderful! Unusual to cook the Avocado but tasty never-the-less. This is worth a try if you are looking for an EASY new way to do a tenderloin! (We also used 1/4 of Santa Barbara sauce in place of the 1/4 steak seasoning. Santa B. sauce is a cross between salsa and steak sauce. This seems like a negotiable part of recipe) Read More

I don't normally eat roast so perhaps this is why I did not like it. Read More

Loved this recipe! I used Worcestershire sauce since I didn't know what "steak seasoning" was but the "bite" of the Dijon mixed with the coolness of the avocado made a wonderful complement to the tenderloin. And so easy! Read More

This was really good. It translated well to two individual tenderloins grilled under the broiler. I didn't taste the avocado outright but I'm sure it affected the overall flavor. The Dijon was prominent and I liked how it tasted with the filet. I used Paula Dean Steak Seasoning. I will make this again! Read More
