Guess who's soaking in the hottub.

Well.......Christmas eve and I finished a 12 hour shift, at 6:00 AM. I have to go back to work on Wednesday. Looks like driving back to D'burg, to spend Christmas with friends and family, is a bust. So I'll make the best of it. Got a pot of turnip greens on the stove and a little something in the sous vide tank, for Christmas dinner. 2 lbs. of Angus bone-in ribeye roast, or steak, depends on how hungry you are. 







A little over-night bath should do. Sealed in his little plastic one-piece, with some marjoram, rosemary, salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

    I thought it was you doing the soaking in a hot tub. I was kind of scared to click on this thread and see photos.

    I will be doing some beef tenderloin and tri-tip that way for Christmas.

    I did a whole tri-tip for 4 hours and a trimmed beef tenderloin for 90 minutes-- both at 132 degrees then blasted them with a MAPP torch after they came out. Both were extremely good. Being the chef, I made sure to grab some for myself before I set out the plates and it was a good thing because there were only a couple scraps left when everyone finished.

    30 hours. No way that was medium rare.
  • JermanatorJermanator Senior Member Posts: 16,128 Senior Member
    30 hours? Did you even need a knife to cut it?

    That worked really well for me to feed a group of 24.. Drop it in the water and forget about it for a few hours, then pull it out to put a quick sear on it when everyone gets there and we are ready to eat. I went and sliced it in about 1/2" pieces and plated it. Grilling individual steaks for a group that size isn't very practical, and it was much more forgiving/less intensive than roasting a prime rib or whole tenderloin.

    ...besides getting most of the guys Boker switchblades, this was your other enable. I got that sous vide controller for $54 on Amazon Warehouse Deals.... Jackass!

    My turn... Balcones Texas Whiskey. My brother gave me a bottle of the blue corn whiskey last month for my birthday and it is dynamite! Then he gave me a bottle of their single malt whiskey today... wonderful!

    The temp never rises above the desired set point. Therefore it can stay whatever doneness you desire. 
    So that long and it would still be medium rare and tender?

    Cooking it with more or less time will change the texture along with some enzyme and possible bacterial activity, but it was still a medium rare going 30 hours at 129 degrees. I went a touch higher at 132 because I read that 130+ killed most of the potential nasties that may happen to be there, plus I kept the time short to make sure any other that were left didn't have a chance to multiply enough to make someone sick. The last thing I ever want to do is cook for a group and give them food poisoning for Christmas. If it were just me, I would probably be a bit more adventurous.

    Sous vide keeps it at whatever temp you set it at. Medium rare is about 134°. The longer you cook it, the more it breaks down the connective tissue, and make it more tender. I cooked this NY strip at 138° for just over 10 hours, between medium rare and medium. Like Chris said, it don't get any hotter than the water it's setting in.

    I'll have to check the liquor store for some of that.

    Been doing some research on these things. What is the bluetooth and wifi for??
  • JermanatorJermanator Senior Member Posts: 16,128 Senior Member
    Probably so you can control and monitor it via a cellphone.

    One would actually have to have good internet at home for that. Which my neck of the woods doesn't offer.
