Once you use sous vide to cook your steak, you will never cook it any other way. This recipe is a melt-in-your-mouth drool-worthy sous vide steak that you will love!


  • 1 Pound Steak Cut of Your Choice
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Butter and/or Olive Oil
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Flaked Sea Salt


  1. Preheat your water bath to 129° F (for medium-rare steak - refer to the chart for other times and temps).
  2. Season both sides of your steak liberally with salt and freshly cracked pepper.
  3. Place in a vacuum seal bag and seal OR place in a gallon-sized ziptop bag and remove as much air as possible.
  4. Place in the preheated water and sous vide for 1 hour.
  5. Once finished, remove from the water and bag. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat and place in 1-2 tablespoons of butter (or olive oil) in the hot skillet. Sear the steak on each side for 10-30 seconds. Careful to not overcook - this does not take long and why a hot pan is crucial.
  6. Remove and enjoy! Top with additional flaked sea salt and compound herbed butter if desired!
