I made this earlier in the week and it was fabulous. (I used tenderloins that were about 1/2 pound each, and the cooking time for these was about 25 minutes...best to use a meat thermometer so you don't overcook them, it's easy to cook them too long and end up with dry meat)..

Bake

Ingredients

2
tbs. parsley, chopped
2
tbs. rosemary, chopped
2
tbs. thyme, chopped
10
yes 10..garlic cloves, mashed (1 head)
2
tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
2
tbs. dijon mustard
1/2 c
seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 c
worcestershire sauce
1/2 c
water
1 medium
shallot, minced
1/4 c
olive oil
1 lb
venison tenderloin or backstrap
salt & pepper to taste

CREAMY HORSERADISH SAUCE

1/4 c
sour cream
1/4 c
mayo
1/4 c
prepared horseradish
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
After soaking venison in salted water, removing all gamey taste, place in fridge covered with mixture of olive oil and 5 cloves mashed garlic (a bit of rosemary doesn't hurt either). Let marinate in oil/garlic mixture for at least an hour.
2
Preheat oven to 525° F. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine parsley, rosemary and thyme. Add garlic, cracked black pepper, Dijon mustard, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce and water. Stir to make a thick paste. Spread paste over loin. If necessary, tuck thinner end of loin underneath so that it will cook evenly. Salt and pepper to taste.
3
Place loin on oven roasting rack inside of oven roasting pan. Place in oven and reduce oven temperature to 375° F. Roast until meat thermometer reads 125° F for rare, 135° F for medium-rare (temperature will continue to rise a few degrees after pulling from oven). Do not cook past medium-rare. (My experience showed that if you're using smaller cuts of loin, cooking time could be as little as 15 minutes-learn to know your meat by touch or buy a thermometer)
4
Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before carving. Slice thinly against the grain.
5
Mix Creamy Horseradish Sauce ingredients together and serve aside the loin. YUMMMM!
