Have seared a beef tenderloinand coated with garlic and lavender. Refrigerated overnight. How long can I give it to get to room temp before.

Please, please, please post this recipe! I LOVE anything with lavender!

Have made this many times and the 2 hr rule only raises temp 6-8 degrees. I like the 4 hr answer although it makes the food safety police nuts. Thx to all.

No, the 4 hour temp raise is fine in terms of food safety. Why would you think otherwise?

Easily an hour or two. Sounds luscious! How are you going to cook it?

I would give it about an hour, but u can let it have as much as four hours to warm up and then cook it, the garlic and lavender sound interesting and delicious, let us know how it turns out ;)

Depends on the size but 30 minutes should've reasonable for a medium size.
