Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Sauce

Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Sauce

Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish sauce is a great low fat meat recipe to have for dinner. This recipe makes 8 servings worth 3 points each. However, I would be a bit greedy here, and go for a double ration for a family of 4, having 6 points each, and still topping it up with a nice serve of steamed rice and a salad to make a filling and delicious meal.

One of the things I like about this recipe is that it contains horseradish sauce. Now, not many people like it. I do. It is a very strong flavour that can decongest your nasal passages in no time. That's one of the reasons I like eating Japanese food, as they always have horseradish (Musawi) available. It has a burning, sharp flavour with a biting aroma.

Naturopaths reckon it helps reducing "sinus" related problems. I don't have that problem, so I would not know whether that's true, but I like it all the same.

In the context of this recipe, I reckon that the horseradish loses its biting power a bit during the cooking process, but that may be just me with my high tolerance for spicy food.
