Sous Vide Short Ribs w/BGE Sear and Reduced Balsamic Wine Sauce

Finally got a flash card reader so I used a decent camera this time.

Grass fed short ribs bagged with some raising the steaks DP then Sous Vide at 135 for about 60 hours, then let cool down a bit, then seared.  Poured the bag juice into the balsamic and wine reduction sauce.  Split a monster Idaho baker.  The meat was still pink and as tender as a tenderloin.   Delicious.

    Looks awesome! Can't wait to set up my hack sous vide. :D

    Why 60 hours? Could they have been done sooner? Seems like a really long time...
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    I wanted a medium rare short rib.  Takes a long time for he collagen to break down at 135F.  I could have done 5 or 6 hours at 178 and they would be tender, but a different flavor profile and on the well done side.  If you have the luxury of time, you can achieve a juicier texture at lower temperatures because the protein doesn't denature as much and squeeze out the moisture.  There's wasn't much moisture in the bag after the cooking.  That first pic is the bag post-cook.

    The sauce is just some decent red wine, garlic, the juice from the sous vide bag, tiny bit of corn starch and balsamic vinegar.  Reduced, adjust salt levels by diluting with wine or adding more sauce.  Fat is from rib juice.
