Ingredients

1½ to 2-pounds

beef tenderloin, preferably center-cut

½ tbsp.

kosher salt

½ tbsp.

dehydrated garlic

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 tbsp.

butter

3 tbsp.

port – I used a sweet cherry port

2 cloves

garlic, crushed

3 sprigs

fresh thyme

Seasonal vegetables and sides for serving

Directions
  1. Preheat your Infrared SIZZLE ZONE™ Side Burner to high, remember to raise the grids to the high position if using a Prestige® or Prestige PRO™.  If you don’t have a side burner, preheat two burners to high on your grill.
  2. Season the beef tenderloin on all sides with the salt, dehydrated garlic, and freshly ground black pepper. Sear the tenderloin on all sides – even the ends – until nice grill marks form.
  3. Set up your sous vide cooker, preheating to 140°F while the meat cools a little.
  4. Add the seared tenderloin to a food safe, zip-lock bag. Add the butter, garlic, thyme, and splash of port to the bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal it before submerging in the water bath.
  5. Cook the beef tenderloin for three hours. Once done, remove the bag from the water, then remove the meat. Reserve the liquid from the bag to make gravy if wanted.
  6. Preheat your side burner, or main burners to high once more. Pat the meat dry with kitchen towels then sear the tenderloin on all sides once again, until a dark crust forms on the outside of the meat.
  7. Serve with mixed grilled veggies and your favorite potato side dish.
