We wanted a recipe that gave mild beef tenderloin a flavor boost by wrapping it in a thick herbed crust. For our Herb-Crusted Beef Tenderloin recipe, we cooked the roast in the oven on high heat for 20 minutes before adding the herb crust. This gave us a perfectly caramelized exterior that made applying the herb paste easy. Grated Parmesan cheese, combined with the bread crumb-and-herb mixture, proved to be a flavorful glue that helped the mix stay adhered to the roast.
