Makes 4 Servings
1⁄2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 beef tenderloin roast (16oz)
1/2 cup canned diced pineapple, in fruit juice, chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup red onion, mince
2 teaspoon fresh cilantro, rinsed, dried, and chopped (or substitute 1⁄4 teaspoon dried coriander)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon cocoa powder (unsweetened)
2 teaspoon chili powder
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- For the salsa, combine all ingredients and toss well. Let sit for 10–15 minutes to marinate while preparing the seasoning and cooking the meat.
- For the beef tenderloin seasoning, combine all ingredients. Lightly oil the tenderloin and spread an even layer of the dry seasoning over the entire roast.
- Place the seasoned roast on a roasting or broiling pan and roast for 10–15 minutes (to a minimum internal temperature of 145°F). Let cool for 5 minutes before carving into 16 slices (1 ounce each).
- Serve four slices of the tenderloin with 1⁄4 cup salsa on the side.
