Before You Start
A beef tenderloin between 3 and 6 pounds works best. If desired, though not necessary, the beef tenderloin could be seared on the grill or in a large roasting pan, for added color and flavor.
It is important to note that while the Slow Roast Mode will allow to you “delay start” the process for as long as you would like, food safety can become an issue. It is not recommended to delay start the process more than a couple of hours.
For the following preparation, an example of starting the oven at 3:15 p.m. and serving the meal at 7 p.m. will be used.
Place the beef tenderloin on the solid steam oven pan. Season as desired. Place the solid pan into the steam oven on rack position 2. Insert the temperature probe into the center of the meat, taking care to try and cover as much of the shaft of the probe as possible. Plug the temperature probe into the steam oven. Close the door. Press the center knob and scroll to Slow Roast. Press the center knob to select. Scroll to beef tenderloin and press to select. Scroll to medium and press to select. Press the TEMP button and scroll to 142 °F (this will provide a nice medium, though any desired temperature can be used). Press the center knob to select. Press the TIME button twice. Scroll the time to 7 p.m. and press the center knob to select. Press the center knob again to start. The oven will shut off and the screen will go blank. The steam oven will turn itself back on at 3:30 and cook the beef tenderloin to 142 °F, finishing at exactly 7 p.m. This will include a rest period factored in, so at 7 p.m. you can remove the pan from the oven, cut and serve the tenderloin.
