When planning a dinner party, my Dijon Pepper Beef Tenderloin recipe always tops my menu. This recipe makes you appear like a chef in the kitchen and truly it is effortless. This scrumptious and easy whole beef tenderloin recipe makes a big impression.

For a special dinner, I'll start a few days prior to the party preparing this make-ahead recipe. I don’t want to leave all my work for the day of the party. So, I marinate the meat for 48 hours and then cook the beef tenderloin in oven. This recipe is simple and a guaranteed hit!
