Petite Roasts

- We recommend using the two-step skillet-to-oven method, also referred to as "steakhouse style" to prepare petite roasts that are approximately 2 lbs or less. This method uses a quick skillet sear followed by an oven finish to desired doneness.
 
 

This method is great for...

Steak or Roast   *Medium Rare *Medium
Center Cut Tenderloin Roast about 1.5 lbs 27 to 34 min. 35 to 42 min.
Traditional Cut Tenderloin Roast about 2 lbs. 40 to 49 min. 49 to 59 min.
