Beef tenderloin is such a treat – buttery, tender, and decadent. It’s important to not overcook tenderloin, but it can be easy to not cook the meat all the way through. The best way to make sure you cook tenderloin to the perfect temperature is to employ sous vide cooking. By vacuum sealing the meat, then immersing it in water, the meat will slowly come up to the perfect temperature, and cook evenly throughout the roast. This recipe works for a whole tenderloin, or any sized tenderloin roast (like a chateaubriand) as well.
