- Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon Coarse salt
- 1 tablespoon Black pepper
- 1 tablespoon Garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon Chipotle seasoning
- 1 tablespoon Smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon Ground ginger
Preheat an oven safe pan (cast iron works best) over medium-high heat and your oven to 400 degrees. While your pan and over are heating, make your homemade rub.
Once your rub is made, remove the tenderloin from the package and pat all sides dry. Liberally season all sides of the tenderloin.
Once your pan is hot, sear all sides of the tenderloin for two minutes each side. Then, put it in the oven for four minutes (for medium rare).
Allow the tenderloin to rest for five minutes before serving.
