Sous Vide Beef Tenderloin with Port Wine and Garlic is a luxurious and flavorsome dish. The sous vide technique ensures that the beef is cooked to perfection, with a uniform texture throughout, while the port wine and garlic sauce adds an elegant touch.


For the Beef:

  • 1 beef tenderloin (about 2-3 lbs)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Port Wine and Garlic Sauce:

  • 1 cup port wine
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: fresh herbs for garnish (thyme, rosemary)


  1. Preheat your sous vide cooker to 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare doneness. Adjust the temperature for your preferred level of doneness if necessary.
  2. Season the beef tenderloin generously with salt and pepper. Place it in a vacuum-seal bag or a resealable ziplock bag using the water displacement method.
  3. Place the bag in the sous vide water bath and cook for 2 to 3 hours.
  4. While the beef is cooking, make the port wine and garlic sauce. In a saucepan, sauté the garlic and shallot in a tablespoon of butter until translucent. Add the port wine and beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Let it reduce by half, which will take about 20-30 minutes. Whisk in the remaining butter until the sauce is glossy. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Once the beef is done, remove it from the bag and pat dry with paper towels.
  6. Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Sear the beef tenderloin quickly on all sides until browned, about 1 minute per side.
  7. Slice the beef tenderloin and serve it with the port wine and garlic sauce. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
