  1. 1.Preheat the sous vide water bath to 130°F (54°C).
  2. 2.Season the steaks generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  3. 3.Place each steak in a separate vacuum-sealed bag or a ziplock bag, removing as much air as possible.
  4. 4.Once the water bath is heated, carefully place the sealed bags into the water, making sure they are fully submerged.
  5. 5.Cook the steaks for 1.5 hours for medium-rare doneness. If you prefer a different level of doneness, adjust the cooking time accordingly.

lightbulb_outline Tips

  • chevron_rightFor an extra flavor boost, you can marinate the steaks in your favorite marinade before cooking them sous vide.
  • chevron_rightIf you don't have a vacuum sealer, you can use the water displacement method to remove air from the ziplock bags. Just partially seal the bag, submerge it in water, and let the water pressure push the air out before sealing it completely.
  • chevron_rightTo achieve a perfect sear, make sure the skillet is very hot before adding the steaks. This will give them a nice crust.
