1 (5 pound) beef tenderloin
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons unsalted butter


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Season tenderloin with salt and pepper on both sides. Place a large ovenproof skillet over high heat, melt the butter and sear tenderloin on all sides. Place in oven and cook to desired doneness or until a thermometer inserted registers 125 degrees for medium rare.  Remove tenderloin from oven and let it rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with rum-red chili sauce and wild mushroom rice.
