Perfectly Cooked Sous-Vide Steak

Perfectly Cooked Sous-Vide Steak

Being able to cook the perfect steak is basically an essential.  For me, the best way to make a steak is to cook it sous-vide.  Not only is it fool-proof, but it results in the juiciest most tender steak you will ever have, trust me.  By cooking sous vide, you get a completely even steak all the way through.

I’d highly recommend the nomiku for all you’re sous-vide cooking needs.  It’s compact, portable, and quite affordable, especially when you use my discount code, ‘thechefdan’ for $20 off the wifi model.  Anyway, on to the recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • Steak – My favourite cut is ribeye but you can use whatever you want
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • butter


  1. Fill a large pot or cooking safe container with water and attach the Nomiku. Set the Nomiku to your desired temperature. I usually like to go for 133°F which is between rare and medium-rare.
  2. Place the steak into a large ziplock back and Seal using the water displacement method, or alternatively using a vacuum sealer.
  3. When the Nomiku water bath is at desired temperature, drop the bag in the water and allow it to cook for 4-5 hours (If you are using a less fatty cut like a filet, less time is needed but I like the extra time for fattier cuts like rib eyes)
  4. Remove the steak and pat dry with paper towel.  Generously season both sides with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat and drop in a big chunk of butter.  Sear the steak for about 1 min on each side (make sure the pan is screaming hot).
  6. Now, enjoy the best steak that you’ve ever made!
