to show you how to make a wonderful Chateaubriand. In these next few segments, I'm going to show you how to make a great romantic dinner. We are going to start with the Chateaubriand. The first thing we're going to do is sear our meat. So I'm going to take the tenderloin and put it in a hot pan that has a grape seed oil with minced garlic already in. It's called a dipping oil, but you can also use it like this. The pan has to be very, very hot for this to work. It'll keep all the juices in when it is finally done. It goes real fast. Now the other side. Do all four sides. This will keep the meat tender. And there we are. It's seared. The next step I will be taking it and putting it into the oven, and it will cook on this side for about twenty minutes depending on how you like the rareness to come out. I'm a medium rare person, so I'll let it cook; at 130 (degrees), I will take it out. For medium you want 140. It will continue cooking once we take it out. So you want to make sure that you take it out about ten degrees lower than what you want it to come out. The temperature of the oven should be about 445 degrees.
