Sous Vide Short Ribs

I dusted off my Polyscience Immersion Circulator and decided I'd give short ribs a try.  Nola gave me advice throughout and the meal was a hit!  Thanks bruh!  

Seasoned the short ribs with S&P, then vacuum sealed them and sous vide them for 68 hours @145.

Pulled them out, threw them in a cold water bath (still in the bag).  Then, I took out the bones and threw them in the juices for the sauce.  Meanwhile, I tossed the de-boned short ribs in the fridge (per nola's advice).

I seasoned everything again, then cooked them raised direct (flipped once) till they looked done.  I would have temp checked them, but I was busy making mashed potatoes and veggies.

Amazing meal!  I didn't add the veggies to the pic because I didn't have time to think how to plate them properly.  lol

So good!

    Nice work. Was the refrigeration to keep them from overshooting during the sear?

    Exactly for that reason!

    It's good to finally see some green in your back yard. 


    Good looking grub. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Nice cook. Texture looks incredible. Can't go too far wrong listening to Nola.

    Yeah...they were perfect.  Not too mushy, not too firm.  My brother said "oh my" when he took his first bite.  Said he's never tasted anything more tender.  The last pic doesn't do it justice...but not stringy and they all had a nice pink hue.

    Looks killer!  If I may ask, how does raised direct sear compare with searing on super heated CI pan?  Also, what did you re-season with. This has been long overdue on my to-do list!

    Nola could prolly answer better.  I took the raised direct approach as adding color, and kind of caramelizing the outside.  I think a sear on a cast iron pan may work, just prolly easier to overshoot.  Just S&P...kept the flavors simple as I wanted the beef to shine.

    I think you answered my question about searing ... CI can overshoot, it also cannot sear uneven surface evenly. Thanks for sharing.

    After an underwhelming SV ribeye attempt, I think i'll make beef short ribs my next trial on the new SV. Not prepared to give up on SV beef just yet! This post gives me hope!

    Sixty-Eight hours in the SV at 145?  Holy cannoli!  That's low and slow, my friend!

    Looks awesome!
