- 2 to 3 lbs. of Beef tenderloin, center cut
- 1 tbsp. of olive oil
- 1 tsp. of kosher salt

Châteaubriand is a classic dish. The TurboChef oven sears the meat just like the professional chefs like it. Getting the right cut of beef is critical. Have your butcher cut out the center portion of a whole tenderloin of beef. This is known as a ‘châteaubriand cut’. We recommend cooking to a medium rare.
Turn TurboChef oven on and under ‘Bake’ on the cook wheel, select ‘COOKBOOK’; then under cookbook, select ‘Châteaubriand’. Press ‘START’ to begin the preheat cycle.
To prepare the beef and vegetable dish: Peel and diagonally cut carrots into pieces about 1” thick. Cut potatoes into 1 “pieces. Peel pearl onions. Rub olive oil over the top of the beef. Sprinkle with kosher salt and cracked black and red pepper and garlic. Place the beef in a large ceramic oval dish and surround with onions, carrots and potatoes.
To bake the beef, press ‘START’ again and bake under ‘châteaubriand’ for 18 minutes for medium-rare beef. Use the ‘cook more’ function at the end of the cooking cycle if you want the beef more done. The onions, potatoes and carrots will get roasted and slightly browned. Allow the beef to rest at least 5 minutes.
