Preparation steps


Grease a baking tray with 1 tsp olive oil. Clean the leeks, wash them, cut them in half lengthwise and place them, cut side up, close together on the baking tray. Season with salt and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Clean beets, wash, peel if necessary, cut into wedges, and spread next to and between the leeks.


Rinse 1 orange hot, rub dry, and cut half of it into thin slices, finely grate the peel from the other half. Mix 1 tablespoon honey with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper, and orange zest and drizzle over the vegetables. Spread the orange slices over the top and bake the vegetables in a preheated oven at 170 °C / 325 ˚F for 35 minutes; then remove.


Meanwhile, peel and finely dice garlic. Wash herbs, shake dry, pluck off leaves (set aside leaves of 2 thyme branches) and needles, finely chop the rest. Mix both types of mustard in a small bowl with herbs, garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and lemon zest. Add egg and bread crumbs and stir to combine. Pat beef tenderloin dry. Heat canola oil in a frying pan. Sear meat in it for 5-7 minutes over medium heat until browned all over. Reduce oven temperature to 80 °C / 175 ˚F. Place meat on oven rack, coat thickly with mustard crust, and cook in oven (center, tray underneath) for 2 1/4 hours; after 2 hours, place tray with vegetables underneath and cook for 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, for the vinaigrette, rinse remaining oranges in hot water, rub dry, grate zest from 1 orange and squeeze juice from both. Whisk orange juice and zest with lemon juice, remaining honey, salt, pepper and remaining olive oil and season to taste.


Finally, brown meat under hot oven broiler for 5 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle oven vegetables with orange vinaigrette, dust with cayenne pepper and sprinkle with remaining thyme tips. Slice fillet and arrange on top of vegetables.
