1. Remove rack from the insert pan. Pour 1 cup water into the insert pan and preheat roaster to 400°F.
2. Trim off most of the fat covering the tenderloin. Fold thin, flat end of the tenderloin back toward middle and tie with kitchen twine. This is so the roast will cook more evenly.
3. Combine all seasonings and rub over roast. Insert meat thermometer. Place roast on rack and place rack in roaster and replace cover.
4. Roast for 30 minutes before removing cover to check meat thermometer. Cook to a minimum internal temperature of 140°F for rare, 160°F for medium. It will take about 10 minutes per pound to reach this temperature.

Be sure to use cotton twine in cooking. Twine that is coated or nylon-based will melt at oven temperatures and affect the taste and safety of the meat.
Use garlic powder in place of the onion powder. Or use 1/2 teaspoon of each instead of 1 teaspoon of onion powder.
