    If one were to sous vide flank steak for fajita's before searing at 163-164 (sous vide temp)

    How long would one do that, per se if by chance one were to partake of such an endeavor?

    I'm thinking 3 hours.

    I couldn't help it. I did the oven sous vide. Vacuumed packed meat stayed sunk like a champ in the big pot. Water stays VERY constant in the oven, aka slow temp swings while I was dialing her in. Eventually settled at 225 oven temp. I checked the temp (Thermapen) every 12-15 minutes and stirred the water. When I got the water to 163-164 it stayed there for over 3 hours.

    I would prefer to do a medium-rare setting for 5 hours, but cooking for a well-done crowd has its sacrifices. Enough caramelized onions and some sour cream, and I can hang. Plus things were kinda hectic with one of my wife's nieces ending up in the hospital, so I only had about 3.5 hours to sous vide.

    Wife purchased the already seasoned "fajita meat." Obviously flank. Most tender flank I've ever eaten. Perfect chew. I plan to make sure she doesn't purchase the already seasoned crap anymore.

          Too much going on to even think about that.
