Best Sous Vide T-bone Steak Recipe
- 1 ½ pound of t-bone steak (1.5-inch thickness is preferred)
- ½ teaspoon of kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- Fresh herbs for garnishing (Thyme, rosemary, or minced garlic)
- To prepare the Sous vide, you will first need to fill its container with water, then adjust the temperature to 135°F (57°C). Leave it to preheat.
- Season your T-bone steak by rubbing ½ tablespoon of olive oil on both steak sides. Sprinkle the salt and pepper generously on both sides.
- Now, for the ‘Water displacement’ technique, you will need to put your steak with the herbs (optional) in a zip-lock bag, then close the bag completely except one corner to allow air to come out. Dip the bag in a water filler container, keeping the zip-line above the water surface. Close the zip-line completely.
- Dip the bag completely into the sous vide container.
- Leave it to cook for 1 hour. If it’s 2-inch thick, cook it for 1.5-2 hours.
- When the 1 hour is done, transfer the bag with the steak to cool off in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- Remove excess moisture from the steak with a paper towel. Sprinkle some salt and pepper according to taste.
- On a hot iron skillet, put on a medium-high flame, sprinkled with the rest of the olive oil, sear your steak for 1 minute on each side.
- Separate the meat from the T-shaped bone. Slice the meat into strips and Enjoy!
