Steak Board

Steak night, done right! We either sous vide and then sear our steaks in a hot cast iron skillet or we reverse sear them on the grill. Either way, the steaks turn out so amazing!

To sous vide and sear the steaks:

  • Seal the steak with salt, pepper, fresh rosemary & fresh thyme.
  • Sous vide at 129° for 1-4 hours.
  • Pat dry and then salt & pepper.
  • Sear in a couple tablespoons of butter and canola oil in a steaming hot cast iron skillet, adding fresh thyme, rosemary and garlic to the skillet just after the steak.
  • Spoon the liquid on top of the steak as it sears.
  • Sear until browned all over, no more than 2-3 minutes total. Slice & serve. Watch this story highlight on Instagram to see how they turn out.

Here’s a great how-to post for reverse seared steaks. Serve with a garden salad, Caesar salad, and crusty bread.

How about a BBQ and Cheese Board to munch on while celebrating dad?! To make this board, we usually pick-up the meat from our favorite BBQ joint and pair it with a variety of cheeses (blue cheese, Ivy’s vintage reserve white cheddar, Thomasville Tomme & White Stilton with apricots).

Then we add a variety of spreads, sauces and accompaniments: bbq sauce, mustard, jams, honey, grilled baguette, grilled corn, watermelon, cherries, pickles, jalapeños, onions & beets. Such a great way to enjoy BBQ and cheese together!
