Cooking the perfect steak with traditional techniques like pan-roasting or grilling is tricky. It’s difficult to know the true cooking temperature, and you must time things just right to avoid overcooking. Sous vide does away with the inconsistency, and allows for ultra-precise degrees of doneness.
In this video, we choose to cook our steak rare (129 °F / 54 °C), but as you can see, it’s easy to choose your “perfect” temperature and then achieve it every time.
TIP: Pre-sear your steak before packaging and cooking it, for a delectable golden-brown crust, and a tender interior.
