Serves 8 to 10 | Prep Time | Cook Time 22 to 25

Ingredients

1 (4 to 5 pound) fillet of beef, trimmed and tied
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.


Place the beef on a sheet pan and pat the outside dry with a paper towel. Spread the butter on with your hands. Sprinkle evenly with the salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for exactly 22 minutes for rare and 25 minutes for medium-rare.


Remove the beef from the oven, cover it tightly with aluminum foil, and allow it to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes. Remove the strings and slice the fillet thickly.

COOKS NOTE:

Be sure your oven is very clean or the high temperature will cause it to smoke.
