Impress your guests with the best! Sous Vide is a guaranteed way to get the most tender, succulent cook on your beef.
- Difficulty (0 = Caveman, 5 = Thomas Keller): 4
- Serving size: 2
- Prep/cook time: 1.5 hour
- Meat temp: 120°F
- 2 NY strip
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- Coarse salt for garnish
- Add all the contents to the bag and air seal them. Alternatively, you can fill the contents into a ziplock bag and slowly submerge the bag under water to release all the air. Be careful with this method, it’s easy but takes some practice. Once your bag is submerged to the very top, zip close the bag.
- Fill your pot with enough water to completely submerge your steak bag. You may need clips or weight to keep it submerged. I use bobby pins and clip mine to the side of the pot.
- Cook to your desired doneness.
- You CAN sous vide too long. I recommend no more than 3 hours, and that would be from frozen.
- 120°F is optimal temp in sous vide to cook dry aged beef, so set your sous vide to 120°F and let your steak cook.
- After your meat has come to temperature, carefully take the bag out of the water, save the liquid for gravy or demi-glace! (Above) Just add butter and flour to a pan and then add the cooking liquid.
- Get a heavy skillet smoking hot. As hot as you can — drizzle of olive oil in the pan
- Sear the steak on each side (about 45 seconds per side, or until the outside gets some color). Sous vide steak looks dull and gray, don’t be alarmed, that’s normal.
- Let the steak rest, and cut and serve.
- Garnish the top with coarse salt.
- You can add anything to your sous vide bag to fit your flavor liking. I like to add peppercorns, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, you can get really funky with it.
