    Sous vide Tri-Tip steak

    mackdaddy

    This "steakie" I think is my last one off of a full size tri-tip that was gifted to me. I love the beefy flavor, I just don't like the really thin slicing I've had to do (always against the grain) to get rid of the extra chewiness. I'm real sensitive to texture.

    This dude has equal parts black pepper, ancho chili powder, and cayenne pepper all over it.

    I've been able to keep the temp at 132 degrees (+/- 2 degrees). Almost one hour in, plan to go 3 hours. Then sear with some butter in a pan, and add sauteed onions and mushrooms for the final dish.

    I stir every 10-12 minutes. I have the meat pulled up a little more to the side than what it shows in the first pic.

    Put some type of silicon thingy to protect the bag from the heat off of the pot. Unless you got where it doesn't touch the bottom of the pot.

      The bag is not, couple edges floating just above the bottom. Plus I have the burner positioned more towards the "other end" of the pot. It is one of the smallest burners on this range top, with 5 burners and 3 sizes.

      That's a great way to put it. Sous Vide can be freaking magical.

      No doubt. For me, I see no need for ribeyes or fish. But something like this, blows my mind.

    Wow!!!! That is extraordinary. You my good man are a genius. Will definitely now get a sous vide, even though I did get the Smoke Vault. Or I could do what you did. I would probably burn down the house though.

      mackdaddy if you want to experiment a bit before investing in a sous vide circulator just bring a couple large pots of water up to the temp you want (i.e. 130 for steaks) and poor it into a beer cooler. Throw your steaks in a ziplock bag and push the air out of the bag and throw them in the cooler for an hour or so. Pull em out and sear them on the grill very fast and enjoy.

      Definitely will try that. I'll try on a "cheap" steak on sale so not wasting a good cut of meat if it does not turn out good. Will let you know what happens.

      mackdaddy, I've used sirloin and it has been great. Throw in a TBS or 2 of butter per steak with a sprig of rosemary and a few garlic cloves. Sear on the grill after the stint in the cooler. Add a bit of salt and pepper just before serving.
