Benefits of Sous Vide Steak

Here are some advantages of cooking steak using a sous vide machine:

  • Precise Temperature Control: No more overdone or dry steaks, by slow cooking with precise temperature control for an extended period of time ensures a steak cooked to any desired doneness.
  • Enhanced Tenderness: Low and slow cooking results in a steak that is incredibly tender and juicy and works greats with tougher cuts of steak like flank steak or skirt steak.
  • Uniform Doneness: There is no risk of overcooking the outer edges while waiting for the center to reach the desired doneness. The steak retains its desired level of doneness throughout, resulting in a uniformly cooked piece of meat.
  • Optimal Nutrition & Moisture Retention: The vacuum-sealed bag helps to seal in the natural juices of the steak, preventing moisture loss while retaining vitamins and nutrients from the meat.
  • Convenience & Flexibility: The steak can be prepared in advance and then finished with a quick sear or grill for added flavor and texture when ready to serve. Moreover, there is also no need to monitor and can even sit in the water bath for up to 4 hours, fully submerged, before any detrimental effects take place.

Do Sous Vide Steaks Need to Rest?

Sous vide steaks do not require resting time and can be seared and served immediately after cooking. With sous vide cooking there is no carryover cooking as the temperature and juices are already evenly distributed throughout the steak. With traditional cooking, resting is necessary because the residual heat continues to cook the steak from within, while the exterior cools down slightly.

Can You Sous Vide Steak From Frozen?

Sous vide steaks can be sealed in an airtight bag and even pre-seasoned and frozen. For 1-2 inch thick cuts, add an additional hour to the minimum cook time.
