I am a first time user. I have the Anova Precision Cooker and the Anova reservoir. I want to cook 2 beef tenderloins (each 4 lbs). Can I do them at the same time?

Sure. Provided that the container is big enough for you to have water movement around the items.

Remember, with sous vide cooking, that the thickness of an item is what will determine the time it takes for them to cook. Tenderloin, being a naturally tender cut, will only need to be brought up to you desired doneness temperature.

Thank you, so much! I cooked both roasts and they turned out perfectly.

I love a happy ending. :smiley:

Does increasing the amount of meat ( 2 roasts instead of 1) increase the cooking time? I’m guessing the answer is no, unless the added roast is thicker.

Two correct guesses J.

Instead of guessing it’s better to use Dr. Baldwin’s tables for guidance.
