Time and Temperature

Through loads of experimentation, we’ve found that cooking pork tenderloin at 60C/140F for 2 hours is the perfect combo. Cooking the tenderloin for two hours break down the connective tissue (collagen), which results in extremely tender, juicy pork. Also, cooking the tenderloin at a temperature of 140F ensures that the pork is a beautiful medium rare with great texture. Just make sure you have a reliable sous vide that accurately regulates the temperature of the bath or your results may vary (check out the Anova or Joule).
