Garlic and thyme pork tenderloin (SV)
A simple recipe using one of the best pork cuts, cooked sous vide.
- 1 piece of pork tenderloin (fillet) weighing about 650g
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1.5 tsps. dried or 1-2 tablespoons fresh thyme
- Freshly ground pepper
- Salt (see Chef's notes below)
- Preheat the water bath to 56.5°C (149°F) for medium rare or 60°C (140°F) for medium
- Pat dry the pork.
- Smear with the garlic powder. thyme and pepper. Sprinkle with salt if desired at this stage (see Chef's notes below).
- Place in a suitable vacuum packing bag and seal.
- Put into the bath and cook for a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 8 hours.
- Remove from the bag and drain.
- In the meantime, preheat oil in a frying pan as hot as you can.
- Season with salt if you have not previously done so.
- Sear the meat for a minute each side until browned.
- Pat dry, rest for a few minutes, the cut into slices.
Season with salt by all means, BUT if a) you are not starting the cooking process straight away or b) cooking for a long period or c) using the cook-chill method, it would be better to salt just before searing. Contact between meat and salt for a longer length of time may cause the meat to be dry.
