Sous Vide Chuckie

GlennMGlennM Posts: 975

Thought I would give this a try. It came out great! Sous Vide at 135 for 18 hrs and browned on the egg. I will do this again, tastes like prime rib. I made an au jus with the liquid in the bag and a couple of sour dough baguettes

    I've done that twice, for 48 hours both times. Obviously longer than necessary. Yours looks great! Thanks for posting!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    How did you get your bread to rise without yeast? ;)


    I still need to try this for chuck. Looks fantastic.

    OK, I'm a true convert! I may never buy prime rib ever again!! 24 hours in the tub seasoned with rosemary, salt, tamari sauce and vac sealed at 138 (medium) cast iron seared and the result was AMAZING!!!!

    Thanks @GlennM for the nudge!!!!

    We are converts too! Two 2-1/2-lb. vacuum-sealed chuck roasts for 25 hours in the sous vide at 131°. One with Montreal Steak Seasoning and the other with salt and a big sprig of rosemary.

    Seared afterward on a black steel pan, and then let the pan cool a bit and reduced the juices saved from the vacuum bags. I got 14 thick steaks from that.

    No need to take pictures...it looked exactly like @GlennM's post!

    @Judy Mayberry Hi, Judy! I like your 25 hrs better than my 48. First time I read about that method, the article suggested 48 so that's what I did. Have only done it twice. Next time, I'll go for only a day. Maybe a couple extra hrs as I have a roast in my freezer now. Going to try it from frozen.

    I have to ask though... how did you get 14 thick steaks from 5 lb of meat? 😉

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Is it an absolute necessity to vac seal?   Im not opposed but @The_Stache and  @Judy Mayberry would be able to provide some super valuable input here

    I have not tried it any other way... I would believe you could use an air evacuated zip lock bag of some sort.  Key is to have the meat in full submerssion without getting any of the SV water in the container.  If you do try it with ziplock, let us know how it turns out!!

    You can zip lock and like @The_Stache says make sure it's submerged ..yiu can use the water to aide in getting air out if the bag. That being said a vac sealer is a good investment. It will get used
