Mother's Day Sous Vide from Frozen Ribeye

HoustonEggerHoustonEgger Posts: 550
We had a busy weekend with family over Saturday for kiddo #1's birthday dinner & I then made breakfast for the 8 people Sunday morning on the blackstone (bacon, pancakes & french toast). So come Sunday afternoon I realized I didn't have anything ready/available for dinner, so I went freezer diving and came out with a ribeye from 6/26/17. At 12 noon I got the sous vide going at 125 and threw the vac sealed steak in there. Let that go until 5pm, then pulled, dried and seared on the MiniMax in a lodge cast iron with butter & herbs. Used the woo from Ceramic Grill Store to get the pan screaming hot. Seared for 2 minutes per side and pulled. Perfection.

    The crust on that is amazing.

    If that's what you can pull off on the fly, I'll be right over.

    Wow -- that might be the best sous vide story I've ever heard.  Hard to have pulled that off without it.  Steak looks perfect!

    To add to the meal - I also found a bag of the @RRP 10 hour burgundy mushrooms and some sausage stuffing from Christmas. Those went into the Sous vide for about an hour to defrost and warm for dinner - everything was a freezer dive meal and it was awesome. But no pics of the finished plate so it didn't happen
