Who knew sous vide pork tenderloin is a great way to cook this piece of meat?
The SousVide Supreme has forever changed the way I cook in the kitchen. The water oven makes it APPEAR like I slaved at the stove all day, when I only spent about five minutes of prep time. Hee hee!
I SO love it.
Even when you’ve got a piece of meat that is super tapered at one end (e.g. tenderloin), the whole piece of meat is PERFECTLY cooked from edge to edge. No one gets stuck choking down a dry, over-cooked end piece!
(Don’t forget that you can hack a sous vide machine yourself.)
Time to make Sous Vide Pork Tenderloin!
Serves 4 – 6
- 2 pork tenderloins, about a pound each
- 1.5 tablespoons of Tabil seasoning (or your favorite dry rub)
- 1.5 tablespoons of Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbs of ghee or butter
- All of my recommended kitchen tools are listed here.
Dry off the meat…
…and liberally season with salt, pepper, and your favorite dry rub.
Don’t be afraid of salt.
Add a pat of butter or ghee to each tenderloin and vacuum seal it.
Stick the packet in the SousVide Supreme set at 135-140 F (I prefer 135F) for a minimum of 2 hours. (If you aren’t serving them right away, dunk them in an ice bath for an hour and store in the fridge and freezer.)
Take the pork out of the packet, dry it off…
…and sear in a hot pan with your favorite fat or torch it.
