Divide in half, setting part of the garlic & herb butter aside in a separate bowl for after the roast is done. Heat a large cast iron skillet or heavy pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, when oil is hot, place the roast into the skillet and let it sear on each of 4 sides for 2-3 minutes. When done turn of heat and rub tenderloin all over with half of the garlic herb butter. Keep tenderloin in the pan or transfer to a roasting pan and put into the oven. Cook for 25-35 mins or thermometer reaches 130 degrees for medium-rare depending on the size of the roast. While the meat cooks, mix all of the ingredients for the horseradish sauce in a bowl and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
