Whole-roasted beef tenderloin is a once-a-year celebratory dish that can be fantastic if done properly. The problem is, its extra-lean meat dries out and overcooks very easily. Our slow-roasting reverse-sear method ensures perfectly medium-rare meat from edge to center with a nicely browned, flavorful crust.

While all kinds of steak and other quick-cooking meats make perfect candidates for sous-vide cookery, tenderloin is particularly well suited. By cooking the steak in a vacuum-sealed bag in a water bath, you can absolutely guarantee even cooking from edge to edge, and added flavorings keep the meat tasty.
