Slow-roasting a tenderloin frees you up to work on the other courses.
Beef tenderloin’s buttery texture (and high price tag) makes it a favorite for special occasions. In this luxurious menu, it’s roasted at a low temperature, which cooks the meat slowly and evenly, and frees you up to work on the rest of the dishes: a rich red wine sauce, creamed spinach amandine and potatoes mousseline. Finish things off with a bright note from the pecan-pineapple upside-down cake.
