Parmesan and Herb-Crusted Beef Tenderloin
This glorious, pepper-rubbed roasted beef tenderloin is coated with herbed bread crumbs that have been mixed with anchovies, which add a nice pungent accent to the rich meat. The roast beef is served with a simple, flavorful red wine sauce. Plus: Beef Recipes & Cooking Tips
The herbed bread crumbs can be refrigerated overnight. Let the bread crumbs return to room temperature before proceeding.
