Ingredients for 6
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
Pinch lime sea salt
1 (3-pound) pork tenderloin, silverskin removed
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Set Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 139°F (59.4°C).
Combine the garlic powder, cumin, thyme, rosemary, and lime salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.
Place the pork on a clean flat surface, brush it first with the olive oil, then rub with the kosher salt, followed by the garlic-herb rub.
Transfer the pork to a large food-safe bag (or use a sharp knife to cut the tenderloin evenly into two pieces, and place in two medium food-safe bags).
Seal using your vacuum sealer or using the water displacement method. Place the sealed bag(s) in the water bath and cook for 2 hours.
When the pork is cooked, remove it from the bag, place it on a paper towel–lined plate or baking sheet, and pat it dry. Discard the cooking liquid.
Heat a cast iron pan over high heat and add the butter. Add the pork to the pan and sear until browned on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes in total.
Remove the pork from the pan and transfer it to a cutting board. Let it rest for 5 minutes before carving into 1- to 2-inch medallions.
