Center Cut Tenderloin Roast
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin
- 1 to 1 1/4-pound tenderloin roast cut from the center of the whole tenderloin
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
Preheat a cast iron grill pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, brush the roast with the olive oil, and sear on all sides, approximately 8 to 10 minutes total cooking time. Remove the roast to a plate, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the roast back onto the grill pan, put in the oven and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, wrap in foil, and allow to rest for 30 minutes before cutting.
