Pepper-crusted beef tenderloin with herbed steak sauce
Mix all of the spice rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the spice mix over a piece of cling wrap and roll the beef on it until it is well coated.
Wrap loosely in the cling wrap and set aside to rest for 30 minutes.
Heat a grill pan or BBQ over medium-high heat.
Drizzle the beef with olive oil and sear on all sides for approx. 5-7 minutes each side. To cook the beef to medium rare, cook until the internal temperature reaches 130°F or 55°C.
Allow meat to rest, covered in foil for 15 minutes before slicing thinly.
Over medium low heat, add all the sauce ingredients into a small pot and mix gently until the butter melts.
Whisk well and serve in a dipping bowl and/or drizzled over the beef.
Serve with a green salad or with steamed vegetables.
