- Using the vacuum sealer, make sure that the tenderloin is completely sealed and that any excess air has been removed from the bag.
- Secure the snap weight to the bottom of the vacuum bag before carefully lowering it into the sous vide container. Secure the vacuum bag by inserting the bag clip into the rack.
- Allow the steak to sous vide for the duration of the given cooking time.
- Once the tenderloin has finished cooking, carefully remove the steak from the water bath. Remove the steak from the bag along with the herbs and garlic to a paper towel-lined plate or a sheet tray with a roasting rack. Before searing, thoroughly dry the steak with paper towels.
- Place a sauté pan over high heat and add high-temperature cooking oil. When the oil begins to lightly smoke, carefully add the steak along with the garlic and herbs to the pan. Sear the steak on each side for approximately 40 seconds or until golden brown. After flipping the steak, you can add unsalted butter for basting. This adds an extra depth of flavor and smells amazing!1 tbsp High Temperature Oil: canola oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil, 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter, for basting (optional)
