1 whole filet of beef tenderloin (4 to 5 pounds), trimmed and tied
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Pat the tenderloin dry with paper towels and brush it all over (top and bottom) with the butter. Season the beef with salt and pepper on all sides.
Place the tenderloin on a sheet pan and roast it for about an hour or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roast is 130 degrees for medium rare.
Remove it from the oven and allow it to rest 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, for the sauce, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustards, horseradish, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Remove the strings and slice the filet between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. Place the slices on a platter and season the middle of the steaks with salt and pepper.
