Marinated Beef Tenderloin with Greek Horseradish Sauce is a thing of beauty and bulk.
Don’t be intimidated, because beef tenderloin is so easy to make you can do it blindfolded.
This is due to the marinade cooked up out of ingredients you most likely have in your cupboard; cooking time is a breeze too.
If you want cooking to rhyme, feel free to use some thyme (rosemary is not necessary).
Seasoned cooks sprinkle a bit extra on top for just in case, since spices have no salt and are rich with antioxidants.
Horseradish sauce is so creamy and dreamy, so do include it in the recipe.
Sour cream and yogurt were used in this instance, but mayonnaise slides down the chute just as well.
Meat varies in thickness from one cut to another, so a meat thermometer will help quite a lot.
Below you’ll find temperature ranges for doneness based on how blue you want your meat.
- 120º to 125º: rare
- 130º to 135º: medium-rare
- 140º to 145º: medium
Creamy, smooth texture in this recipe is all due to Greek yogurt. Plain, full-fat plain Greek yogurt is pretty much the best option but alternatives are OK too – Icelandic plain yogurt (skyr) comes in the full-fat form in many shopping outlets.
Low-fat and non-fat types taste just like you would imagine a rejected yogurt product would so skip them.
They won’t help with ketosis either because they’re typically loaded with sugar to offset the loss of fatty taste.

"All this by a 2-minute "after-dinner ritual?" I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.
She said, "It’s not so much about the "after-dinner ritual", but more about how it gives you a regenerative form of deep sleep that is responsible for everything we need to dramatically increase our fat burning metabolism and improve our health and appearance."
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how "you can’t transform your body overnight"…
