SWMBO purchased two of them last week but we could not find any this week... until today! Can't stop looking at those beauties.

This time, I am going to cook them sous vide and finish them in a CI pan or caveman style.

Look at this marbling...

    "Mechanically Tenderized"???

    Interesting for sure.. Great marble to the meat though. Looks damn tasty. I'd do a reverse sear on them, and get all that goodness to melt down and turn to butter!

    I noticed that... I don't really care, we had two last week and they were the best steaks we ever had.

    They are in the sous vide right now. Should be ready in an hour.

  • I doubt they are tenderized. Costco puts that on all their steak labels because they do needle a lot of them. They know what they are doing so I'm guessing this is a label issue more than anything.

    We are on vacation and we did not do anything special. No restaurant nothing so this is our treat. There is no way I could afford this on a regular basis...

    After 1:22:28 in the immersion circulator, they should reach a core temperature of 124.9F

    Water bath temperature is 131F.

    Beautiful steaks!  You can dial in your setpoint, just keep it under 4 hours.  The 131F is the minimum guideline temp for over 4 hours.

    @RedSkip‌ - We had our contractor install it for us. I am way too perfectionist and I have to plan everything 100% before I start something like that. If I had install it myself, I would still be planning everything...

    @yzzi‌ - Way too many people don't know how to choose meat. I was raised eating well done steaks and chose them with as litle marbling as possible. I learned most of what I know today working in a restaurant washing dishes. When my job was done, instead of slacking, I helped the Chefs and in return they shown me how to cook and made me taste all sorts of dishes. My brother still can't eat a steak if it's not well done. I am trying as hard as I can to teach his kids the right way :)

    @anzyegg‌ - pics are there now.

    @TigerTony‌

    I cooked some wagyu steaks on the egg last week:

    http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1169372/wagyu-beef-at-costco-in-canada

    A fellow forum member ( @travisstrick‌ ) recommended that I sous vide them and finish in a cast iron pan. Many members are interested in sous vide (and other cooking techniques). Agreed, I should have posted in the OT category but I was not sure if I would sear them in the CI or if I would finish them caveman style in the egg. I ended up finishing them inside in the CI pan...

    Oh yeah, the people on the sous vide forum are not as nice as they are here. It's quite boring, no drama whatsoever and there is always someone to remind you to stay on topic...

    Thanks for looking.

    @nolaegghead‌

    Thanks for the advice. I am well aware of that. I've set the temperature of the water bath in order to reach a target temp of 125F in time for diner.

    I use the polyscience app on SWMBO's iPhone and it allows me to configure the parameters of the cook (type of meat, shape, thickness, start temperature, target temperature, etc). 131F was the water temp required to reach my goal. I wish they had the app on android...

    @pacman - that app is pretty neat, but this kind of cook isn't one that needs pathogen reduction - just keep it under 4 hours.  The surface bacteria is killed in the fire even if the inside is frozen.

    @The Cen-Tex Smoker‌ - Thanks for the compliment!

    @tarheelmatt‌ @johnmitchell‌ Thanks guys!

    @Fred19Flintstone‌ - Well, you know, getting fancy and everything. Cooking wagyu steaks every other day. I figured I needed to look a little more classy. Now, I just need a Porsche, a Beamer, Harley...

    Agreed, as you can see there was no pathogen reduction because I pulled the steaks at 1:19:43. Pathogen reduction at the surface would have required 2h41m and pasteurization at core 3h27m. My goal was to reach ~125F within about 1.5 hour. 131F was the temp for that.

    Gotchya.  You had to run a higher temp to make it get to the target temp faster, at the expense of a little MR gradient.
