Garlic Stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Apple Dip




Garlic Stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Apple Dip


  • 1 boneless beef tenderloin
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Sea salt and pepper


For the dip:

  • 2 large apples (I used gala), sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter or ghee
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp raw nuts (I used pistachios)
  • A bit of juice from your cooking tenderloin


Preheat your oven to 425F/220C.


Roll your tenderloin in a mix of the cumin, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Cut a slit all the way down the middle, and fill it with the slices of garlic.


Place it in a roasting pan, and stick it in the oven.


Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet, and toss in your apples, cinnamon, honey. Cook on low, making sure that all of the slices are covered in deliciousness. Allow the tenderloin to cook for 35-40 minutes. You can turn it occasionally if you’d like. Your garlic will probably fall out, but that’s okay. It’s done when it’s simmering in a ton of juice, and the inside is barely (if even at all) pink. Reserve about 2 tbsp of the juice for the dip.


In a food processor, combine most of the apples (save some for the plate), the nuts, a bit more honey, and 2 tbsp of juice from the tenderloin. Process until a smooth paste forms.


Serve the sliced tenderloin with a dollop of dip, and a few slices of apples.
