  • Summary

    Here, handsome and crowd-pleasing beef tenderloin is first rubbed with an Indian-inspired combination of spices—cardamom, mustard, and others work in concert with the nuanced heat of black peppercorns—and then seared to form a fragrant, inviting crust. Finishing it in a moderate oven results in a roast that is evenly rosy, juicy, and as delicious as it is beautiful. Like the bulgur with herbs and the bevy of beans and basil , it can be served at room temperature.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons black peppercorns
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard seeds (preferably brown)
    • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
    • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
    • 4 green cardamom pods, crushed, reserving seeds and discarding pods
    • 1 (1 1/2-inch) cinnamon stick, broken into small pieces
    • 1 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
    • 1 (2-pounds) trimmed and tied center-cut beef tenderloin roast, at room temperature 30 minutes
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • Equipment: an electric coffee/spice grinder
