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!

When we sous vide and sear the steaks, we 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.
