Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
Total time: 1 hour


  • 6 pounds beef tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cloves garlic


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F degrees.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Cut roast in half. One half of the roast should have a thinner end that tapers off. Fold the thin end up against the other of the roast and use kitchen twine to tie it together, creating an even thickness in the roast.
  4. Season the roast generously with salt, peppers and sugar. Sear the roast on all 4 sides until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer seared meat to a roasting pan and roast in the preheated oven until desired done-ness is reached.
  6. Let meat rest for 15 minutes before serving.
  7. While meat is resting melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once butter melts, add in garlic cloves. Continue to cook over medium heat until butter begins to bubble and foam, stirring constantly. The color of the butter will begin to change. As soon as it gets close to reaching a dark golden brown, remove from heat an pour into a heat-safe container. Remove garlic cloves.
  8. Slice the roast into 1/2-inch slices and drizzle with brown butter. Serve immediately.
