There has been a big push toward healthy eating in the last couple of decades. This trend may be bringing longevity and healthy lives but something has been lost, the traditional meat and potatoes meal.

Here is a newer version of a time honored tradition that is tasty and satisfying. The lemon addition to the mashed potatoes is a surprisingly delicious twist.

Marinated Beef Tenderloin with Lemon Herb Mashed Potatoes

Marinated Beef Tenderloin

2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
¼ Cup White Wine Vinegar
¼ Cup Water
1 Tbs Pepper
1 Clove Garlic
1 Cup Soy Sauce
Beef Tenderloin, ¼ pound per person

Whisk the first six ingredients in a bowl. Pour over the beef tenderloin and marinate overnight. Drain the meat and reserve the marinade. Roast in a 425° oven for 15-20 minutes per pound. Ladling marinade over the top ever 10 minutes.

Lemon Herb Mashed Potatoes
