I will argue that steak should be the first thing you sous vide when you get one for yourself all day long! Perfectly cooked every single time thanks to your immersion circulator.
There are many things that sous vide cooking has changed for me, and steak is at the top of the list!
This was the first thing I cooked in my sous vide when I got it and I have not used anything else since.
- No grilling
- No pan-fry
- Nothing but the sous vide!
Why Should Steak Be the First Thing You Need to Sous Vide!
I LOVE a big juicy medium-rare steak and that can be hard to do with other cooking methods.
Depending on how thick or thin the cut of beef is or even the type, it can be hard to know when exactly it's done. And you definitely have to cut into it to tell.
Not with the sous vide!
All you need to do is -
- Vacuum seal or place in a gallon ziplock bag sealed airtight
- Place in your sous vide water bath at the set temp you like your steak - for the given amount of time
- Give a quick sear with butter in a cast iron and that is it!
If you're like me and like medium rare - then the sous vide will cook your steak to medium-rare all the way through from edge to edge.
It won't over cook it!
Using a sous vide, you're able to hold the temperature to a certain temp at a constant time. No over or under cooking. EVER!
