"I shall content myself with merely declaring my firm conviction that, for the seeker who would live in fear of God and who would see Him face to face, restraint in diet both as to quantity and quality is as essential as restraint in thought and speech." -Mahatma Gandhi

Bacon- and Herb-Crusted Beef Tenderloin

1 beef tenderloin roast (2 lb)
Salt and pepper, if desired
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
6 slices bacon

2. Place beef on rack in shallow roasting pan. Place bacon slices over top of beef, tucking ends under bottom. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of beef.
3. Bake uncovered 35 to 50 minutes or until thermometer reads 140°F for medium-rare or 155°F for medium doneness. Remove beef from oven, cover with foil and let stand about 15 minutes until temperature rises 5°.
