    Sous vide for Tri-Tip

    I've been using sous vide with tri-tip for two reasons: Most of mine are frozen and it's a great way to defrost and also bring the meat up to temp before reverse searing, and when they're not frozen just to bring the meat up to temp before reverse searing. I have not been using sous vide to tenderize the meat.

    But the other day I put a non-frozen Tri-tip in for 8 hours to see what the effect would be. Omg! Wonderfully tender tri-tip. This will be my new way, but next time I'll try 24 hours, which is what I've done with chuck.

    A high quality tri-tip like Waygu is mouth watering after only 3 hours at 131-ish.

      Tri-Tip is just made for sous vide. I sear mine at the beginning, then into the sous vide, and finally finish with a sear. The initial sear gives the whole Tri-Tip a wonderful flavor that permeates the meat during the sous vide treatment and the final sear gives the Tri-Tip that nice little crust.

      Here's to great cooks!

          One of these days I'll figure out what sous vide is.

            Tri tip is not really a tough cut. I think 24 hours is way too long. Longer sous vide cook time doesn't necessarily equal more tender meat.
            Chuck is a tough cut, it does benefit from a longer bath.
            I do tri tip 2 - hours.

                I like my Anova that I got from Amazon. Really a first rate unit for all I've done. No problems. Check the Anova website for special deals. Enjoy!

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
