    Snake River Farms American Wagyu boneless ribeye sous vide reverse sear

    Tonight’s dinner was something I’ve never done before..... a Snake River Farms American Wagyu beef ribeye steak! My wife bought me one for my birthday last month, and I vacuumed sealed it and put it in the freezer to cook when I had time to do it up right. Tonight was the night, and I decided the best approach was to thaw the steak, sous vide it for two hours at 129 degrees, and do a reverse sear on a hot Lodge cast iron griddle on its flat side on my Big Green Egg for 30 seconds on each side.

    This was a great quality cut of beef, definitely had the beefier taste and tenderness that wagyu steaks are known for as their reputation, and worth the price. However, that price means it will be a rare cook, and especially only for special occasions!

    As I often do on my cook posts, here are some pictures of the cook and results.

            Great looking steak. Question...I’m still a little hazy on the whole wagyu thing. From what I understand it’s a Japanese breed of cattle but then I see American wagyu. Does that mean it’s American cattle but raised differently?

                      That's a great looking piece of protein. May I ask why you seared in a pan opposed to over live fire since you had it going? Just curious.

                        I had the egg going to smoke a bourbon salmon filet for,my wife’s dinner, so after it was done I removed the plate setter and set a small grate on the fire ring. I had the juices saved from the sous vide cook to use as fat on the pan, and when the pan was hot enough, I seared the steak on it to retain as much as of the fat flavor on the steak rather than losing it from the open flames.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill
                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
