Original recipe yields 2 servings



  1. Fill a large Dutch oven about 2/3 full with water. Bring water to 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) over medium heat. Attach a candy/oil thermometer to the side of the Dutch oven in order to monitor and maintain the water temperature.
  2. Generously season steaks with salt and black pepper. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Place steaks in skillet and cook until just browned, 1 minute per side. Transfer steaks to a resealable plastic bag, squeeze out all air, and seal.
  3. Place plastic bag containing steaks in the Dutch oven, adjusting the heat as necessary to maintain the temperature at 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Cook for 2 1/2 hours, moving the bag around occasionally and maintaining the temperature.
  4. While the steaks are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, until mushrooms are soft, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  5. Remove steaks from plastic bag (reserving any accumulated juices) and pat dry. Generously season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in the skillet over high heat. Place steaks in skillet and cook to form a crust, 2 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate.
  6. Stir garlic and reserved mushrooms into skillet, reduce heat to medium, and cook until mushrooms are reheated, 2 minutes. Stir in reserved juices, water, and balsamic vinegar. Remove from heat.
  7. Stir in 1 tablespoon cold butter until completely melted and incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over steaks and serve.

Please note that the cooking time in the water bath is the square of the thickness. Twice the thickness takes four times as long. A 3/4" steak will be done in 40 to 60 minutes while a 1-1/2" steak will take 160 minutes to four hours. I will try searing the meat first in the hope that searing will seal in more of the moisture. I have been searing as the last step until now. In any event my finding is that I can buy less expensive cuts and get very tender meats with my sous vide oven. Perfect steaks -- every time!



So I decided to make this recipe after seeing the video, turned out really good. I warmed up water and put it in a pot, and after I grilled the meat (I used sirloin) I put three of them in a plastic bag and covered the warm water pot. I left them in for close to 2 hours, grilled them and they turned out very juicy. I didnt have mushrooms, but definitely would want to add them to this dish when I make them next time.



I tried this recipe, everyone loved it. My stovetop gets too hot so I got out my crock pot, put hot water in it got the seared put it in ziploc freezer bags and put it in the water, I didn't watch the temp very good and cooked it more than I would have liked to but it was great the meat was so tender and juicy. Nezt time I will turn it down to warm after it gets up to 140 degrees. Thank you for sharing this recipe
