How to prepare
Not everyone is familiar with this astonishing cut. But it is definitely the one to experience, especially during the Holiday season. Chateaubriand is a rich, center cut piece of beef tenderloin that is best prepared roasted in its own juices or red wine sauce. See below for an instructional video and a full description on how to cook your Chateaubriand for this year's Holiday table!
Salt & Coarse Pepper
Any Oil for searing
How to prepare the Roast:
- Rub Chateaubriand generously with salt and pepper, pressing into the meat slightly, so salt and pepper stay on the surface of the meat.
- Heat your pan until it is very hot.
- Add oil to your pan and once at the smoking point, place your Chateaubriand into the pan.
- Sear each side for approximately 2-3 minutes, turning each time.
- Once the sides are nice and brown, sear both ends.
- Transfer Chateaubriand into an oven pan.
- Place in oven at 300°F until the internal temperature reaches 120°F for medium to medium rare doneness.
- After removing from the oven, let rest for 8-10 minutes to reabsorb all the juices and relax the meat fibers.
- Cut and serve.
