- 1 (1- to 1 1/2-pound) roast of tenderloin
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Olive oil

Slice roast open lengthwise in middle to create a pocket, being careful to not slice all the way through.
Salt and pepper the meat on all sides.
Heat a grill pan over high heat and brush roast with olive oil. Sear the roast on all sides. Remove from the heat, tent with foil and allow to rest for 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, wrap in aluminum foil, and allow to rest 15 minutes before serving.
