Simple Roast Beef Tenderloin

1 5-pound beef tenderloin, trimmed of most excess fat, thin tip end turned under, roast tied crosswise at 1-inch intervals

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper

Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Set meat on a sheet of plastic wrap and rub all over with oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto meat, lifting plastic wrap up and around meat to press on excess.

Roast tenderloin on a wire rack set on a shallow roasting pan until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers about 125 degrees for medium-rare to medium meat, about 45 minutes. Let roast stand at room temperature until temperature falls to between 90 and 100 degrees for warm room-temperature meat.

Cut meat into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices. Arrange on serving platter with Parsley Sauce with Cornichons and Capers (recipe follows).

Yield: 12-20 servings
