DIRECTIONS

  • Remove the fillet from the refrigerator 30 minutes before roasting to bring it to room temperature. Preheat oven to 500 degrees and position a rack in the center.
  • Spread the mustard evenly on all sides of the fillet. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and thyme. Heat the oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over high heat; the oil should shimmer but not smoke. Brown the fillet on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Place the fillet in oven and reduce temperature to 425 degrees. Roast about 25 minutes for rare or until a meat thermometer reads 130 degrees when inserted into the cdenter. (Check the temperature once after about 20 minutes to gauge how far along the fillet is.).
  • Remove the fillet from the oven and allow it to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Will make enough for 36 hors d'oeuvres, 8 to 10 buffet servings, or 6 for a sit-down dinner.
