  1. Serving size:
    8.60 oz (calculated)
    Notes: 1 tenderloin steak


  1. Fill a pot with water and heat the desired temperature. If you don't have a sous-vide machine, use a thermometer to control the heat. It's best to keep it in the pot to ensure the temperature doesn't vary much throughout the cooking period.
  2. For medium rare, heat it to 55°C or 131 °F. For rare meat, heat it to 49°C or 120 °F.
  3. Cut the tenderloin into individual portions. We recommend slices about 2 inches (5 cm) thick.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Put the pieces into individual ziplock bags. Partially suspend them in water, so that the air is pressed out of the ziplock bags. Then close the ziplock bags. It's important no water gets into the bags. If this does happen, simply remove the meat, dry it and the bag and try again.
  6. Put in the water bath. As the ziplock bags might not be 100% watertight, we recommend you tape them to a cooking spoon and suspend them in the water.
  7. Keep in the water bath for at least 1 1/2 hours. The meat will not overcook if you keep it in longer. However, if you are adding larger pieces of meat, you may need to increase the cooking time.
  8. Sauce

  9. Remove the meat from the ziplock bags and dry them off. Let rest.
  10. Now boil the stock on a medium to high heat. Reduce it for about 10 minutes.
  11. Add the cream and butter, reduce the heat and simmer for a couple of minutes.
  12. Remove from the heat while you sear the meat.
  13. Searing the meat

  14. On high heat, melt some lard in a steel pan.
  15. Add the dry meat and sear it for about 30 seconds on each side. Also sear the sides.
  16. Top with the sauce and enjoy.
