  1. Healthy Recipe, Cocoa-Spiced Beef Tenderloin

    Latin American flavors come alive in this festive beef dish with pineapple salsa. Suggested pairing: a side salad of romaine lettuce, tomato, and other vegetables


    • Vegetable oil, ½ tbsp
    • Beef tenderloin roast, 16 oz

    For salsa:

    • Canned diced pineapple in fruit juice, chopped into small pieces, ½ cup
    • Minced red onion, ¼ cup
    • Fresh cilantro rinsed, dried and chopped, 2 tsp
    • Lemon juice, 1 tbsp

    For seasoning:

    • Ground black pepper, 1 tsp
    • Ground coriander, 1 tsp
    • Ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp
    • Ground allspice, ¼ tsp
    • Cocoa powder (unsweetened), 1 tbsp
    • Chili powder, 2 tsp
    • Salt, ¼ tsp


    1. Preheat oven to 375
    2. For the salsa, combine all ingredients and toss well. Let sit for 10–15 minutes to marinate while preparing the seasoning and cooking the meat.
    3. For the beef tenderloin seasoning, combine all ingredients. Lightly oil the tenderloin and spread an even layer of the dry seasoning over the entire roast.
    4. Place the seasoned roast on a roasting or broiling pan and roast for 10–15 minutes (to a minimum internal temperature of 145 F). Let cool for 5 minutes before carving into 16 slices (1 ounce each).
    5. Serve four slices of the tenderloin with 1⁄4 cup salsa on the side.
