Oven Roasted Beef Tenderloin Sliders with Blue Cheese Aioli

oven roasted tenderloin slider

This recipe for oven roasted beef tenderloin sliders is brought to you in part by a great supermarket sale and my craving for blue cheese.  Tenderloin is not a cut of beef that makes its way to my family dinner table very often so it was an EXTRA special supper – worthy of the all caps shout out.

Whole beef tenderloin happened to be the feature sale and for this recipe I used only the butt portion, which was about 2 lbs. The butt portion is the thicker part of the tenderloin. (The longer, narrow tail end piece is tucked in the freezer for a future special supper.)

Next to the stupendous taste, the next best thing about this recipe for is the workload: it’s next to nothing. Oven roasted tenderloin sliders is a sloth-like recipe. The greatest effort that one will need to put forth is mixing: mixing the herb rub for the beef and mixing the aioli ingredients. I suppose washing mescalin greens and slicing red onions and slicing rolls is technically prep work but as you can deduce, it’s not laborious. The only sweat you’ll break is opening the oven door and feeling the heat.

Pair these sliders with a healthy cup of soup and you have a meal that not only fits the bill for busy weeknights but one to go to for casual entertaining year round.
