  • 4 Steaks - whatever cut you'd like
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 8 sprigs Aromatics - Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic anything you like
  • Sealable bag I like the strong freezer style
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 4 Tbsp Butter


  • fill your sous vide with water and preheat to 130-135 degrees (for medium rare - 120-130 for rare, 135-145 for medium - and don't bother eating steak medium well or well done ;) )
  • Pat the steak dry
  • Season with salt and pepper and add your favorite aromatics
  • place in a bag and seal shut, squeezing extra air out
  • place in the sous vide and cook between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 mins, you can leave it up to 2 hours, but I don't recommend it
  • heat oil in a skillet (I like cast iron)
  • pull the steak out of the sous vide bag and sear in the hot pan on both sides about 45 seconds to a min
  • Add some butter and more aromatic and spoon over the meat for extra flavor
  • serve!
