  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly round black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 1/2 to 4 pounds beef tenderloin, trimmed
  • For the Mayonnaise:1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone, at room temperature (if you can't find mascarpone, use an extra 1/4 cup of mayo)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper



1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400°F. Spray a heavy baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

2. Grind cumin and coriander seeds in a spice grinder, or place in a zip-top bag and crush with a rolling pin or the bottom of a saucepan.

3. Heat a small skillet over medium; add spices and cook for a few seconds, then scrape into a small bowl. Sprinkle garlic with salt. Holding a chef’s knife at a 45-degree angle, scrape garlic and salt together to form a paste. Add paste, pepper, and oil to the bowl with the spices; stir until smooth.

4. Place meat on prepared baking sheet and rub with spice mixture. Cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer in the thickest part of beef registers 125°F. Loosely cover meat with foil and let rest for 20 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, to make basil-curry mayonnaise, whisk mayonnaise, mascarpone, basil, curry powder, and paprika in a small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Cut meat into 1/4-inch-thick slices and arrange on a platter. Spoon mayo into a bowl and serve with meat.
