in the oven and roast it for about half an hour at 460 degrees

4 medium-sized beef tenderloin steaks
4 tablespoons of coarsely ground black pepper
2 gloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil

garlic, salt and black pepper.
- Place roasting pan in oven and cook on one side for 4
minutes. Flip steaks. Cook for 4 minutes more, or to
desired state of doneness.
