New cooking methods ... sous vide

So I took the plunge (pun not intended) and purchased a personal sous vide machine.

I've made a wonderful roasted garlic and herb compound butter and I'm about to put a couple of thick cut KC strips in the bath, set it for 134 degrees and in a couple hours I should have perfectly medium rare steak to throw in a screaming hot skillet to sear. Then it's eatin' time.

Will post pics.

Anyone worked with sous vide before? Any tips, tasty things to try?

Yes, but more and more gadgets are out there making error-proof cooking an inexpensive option. Hell, Marinade in a vacuum seal, cook it in the sous vide, sear it in a pan and you've got the perfect steak even without a steakhouse oven. I never go out for steak anymore, because I can make it better than most restaurants do, and I'm just a good, but not exceptional, cook.

And, since you can freeze the vacuum sealed steak, you can do this in bulk and have multiple meals with almost no time invested.

You lost me at Marinade, unless you were talking about a skirt steak or something. Your post appears to condone marinating a strip steak.

Sous vide does a great job on cheap steak. I've made sirloin sous vide that was every bit as tender as filet mignon.

Wow, nice find on my part. I love to grill. Not saying I'm the best at it, but willing to learn.

I have a Weber Genesis grill which I love. The wife is German and thinks my steaks are perfect...and wants me to still use marinade. I usually Jaccard then put steaks in zip locks and add marinade for 1 hour. Then I sear on a 400 deg grill ~ 1-2 min per side, depending on thickness.

I've been trying to use just salt and pepper dry rub. She still likes the marinade. To each their own I guess.

I watched the Douglas Baldwin video and he was searing using a butane torch. Who doesn't like FIRE BABY? Try doing that as the final presentation in front of friends and family. I read that you use a piping hot cast iron pan.

My question is what is the benefit or difference. My thinking is there isn't. A sear = a sear.

That torch was kick ass thou

I personally think you get better flavor out of the cast iron, and it generally tastes better. I actually use both these days. I'll sear the top and bottom and while those are going, I'll use the butane torch to do the sides. It's awesome to torch the fat cap.
