    Default My first attempt at sous vide...

    I make all kinds of steaks but grill, bake/sear. Been watching a lot of Top Chef for years and decided to go for it, and took the plunge..

    Bought some 1 1/2 New York, and a few filets mignons.



    set the temp at 122 for 1:50 mins




    Rubbet it with spices and put a dab of butter on each one, and bagged em. I don't have a vacuum sealer so I just used the straw and zip lock trick to seal and remove air, worked quite well actually, and dropped it in.





    Came out looking like this, and the meat was so supple I could not believe it. Tthen I dropped it in the pan to sear it (all sides)







    Basted it and let it rest for 5 minutes (dropped in a butter bomb with rosemary just after I started searing in olive oil)



    It came out like this;



    Without a doubt the juiciest piece of New York I have ever had. I cant wait to tray other cuts and pork tenderloin (which is hard as hell to get right).

    Oh the filets I just seared and broiled while we were waiting, I got that shit down without the sous vide, but I will try that too.



    I know its a lot of typing and gay, but I was pretty amazed at the results, wow. Great investment.

    Did you save a raw one for the old lady's eye for when the whisky kicks in and you feel she has belittled you one to many times?

    I went with potato salad. The cool starch thing goes well. I was just too fucking lazy to make potatoes too.

    The water doesn't boil. There is not a sous vide recipe I have ever seen that calls for boiling water. Water boils at over 200 I think. Plus the water never touches the meat. So it is not "in" the water technically. Boiled steak sounds gross.

    Reminds me of that episode of Curb Your Enthusiam when Jeff asks for ketchup from a gourmet chef when he brings out his filet.

    Can't knock sous vide. I've been using mine for over a year. One of the best kitchen tools ever

    Somewhere there are the spirits of a couple of cows gently weeping and thinking "we gave up our lives for this shit!" Meat, fire and a little sea salt is all that you need.
