Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours


  • Sous Vide
  • Vacuum Sealer
  • Large Pot


  • Steaks your choice, I like ribeyes and new yorks
  • Seasoning your choice, I like garlic salt, pepper, and seasoning salt


  • Put your steaks on a plate and season both sides with whatever your favorite seasonings are.
  • Place the steaks in a vacuum seal bag and seal them.
  • Attach your sous vide to a large pot and fill it with hot water past the minimum water mark line on the sous vide.
  • Then set the temperature to 128 degrees F and turn it on.
  • Drop your sealed steaks into the water bath.
  • Cover the pot with a piece of foil to help keep the heat in. This helps the sous vide not work as hard to keep a constant temperature.
  • Once the sous vide reaches 128 degrees let the steaks cook in the sous vide for 3-4 hours.
  • Once your steaks have cooked for 3-4 hours, remove them from the plastic bag and quickly sear the steaks on high heat, either on the BBQ, in a cast iron pan, or on a griddle.
    I usually sear 1-2 minutes on each side, but you can adjust the time either way if needed.
