Pre searing meats worth it?

michaeljc70 | May 11, 2012 06:52 PM

From an entertaining perspective, I am wondering if there is a downside to pre-searing meats in advance. I know that restaurants do this.

I am specifically talking about beef or pork tenderloin.

I would sear the meat the morning of the meal and then refrigerate it and bring it to room temp before cooking in the oven.

I see the benefits of saving time and mess (at least while guests are there). I am wondering if it will affect the end product though.
