Salt & Coarse Pepper
Any Oil for searing
How to prepare the Roast:
- Rub Chateaubriand generously with salt and pepper, trying to press into meat slightly, so salt and pepper stay on the surface of the meat.
- Heat your pan, so it is very hot.
- Add oil to your pan and once it is 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 side ends.
- Transfer Chateaubriand into an oven pan.
- Place in a 300 degree oven until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees for medium to medium rare doneness.
- After removing from the over, let it rest for 8-10 minutes to reabsorb all the juices and relax the meat fibers.
- Cut and serve.
