      This is a wonderful beef tenderloin recipe! I followed this recipe exactly and the result was a wonderfully most, tender, flavorful roast. We loved the flavor the marinade gave the roast and the crowning glory is the Royal Butter. Thanks for sharing this keeper, Guava Girl ! :-)

      So good!! I made this for Valentine's Day. I marinated the meet for about 6 hours and it was full of flavor. If you like horseradish, the royal butter is amazing! I'm not ashamed to admit to eating some with a spoon...

      I made this roast for my hubby the day after Valnetine's Dinner. It was a special dinner. The roast, even though I didn't have time to marinate it as long as it said to, was simply one of the best I've ever made. I was able to cut it with a fork it was so tender and very flavorful. I added a little bit of red wine to the marinade as well - and it was to die for! I used another recipe from this site for the horseradish dip and it was all just so perfect - especially with a bottle of red zin from Napa. Ahhhh.
