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?

Just put the herb gravy through the Vitamix, and it's really tasty. Basically just chicken stock, thyme, onions, garlic, a little soy sauce and finished with some butter. Blended the whole sumbitch up and seasoned with salt/pepper.

Does the time make any difference, or once it's at ideal temperature all the way through, is it ready to go whenever?

It's technically ready when it's cooked through, but if you let it go a longer, you'll generally end up with it more tender as the connective tissue dissolves. There's a point, however, where the proteins begin to denature and it gets mushy. That generally doesn't happen until you get in 12+ hour cooking with this kind of steak. There are other cuts, like roasts, that benefit from the 24- to 36-hour cooks.

A cursory look, but that is not prime. This is what prime looks like.

That's a prime rib eye. I didn't get prime rIb eye. It most definitely is prime sirloin. These steaks are way better marbled than any sirloin I've ever cooked.

This thread got me to talk to a couple of chef friends of mine. Between the thread and those chefs, I've been convinced to pick up one of the sous vide machines. It's not high on the list, so it'll be a while before I get one, but you've swayed at least one of us here, so thanks for that.

BTW, how much are you paying for prime sirloin in your neck of the woods?

My bad. Here's marbling from left to right on sirloin... prime... choice... select. If you were sold the sirloin in the picture you posted as prime you were screwed.

The steaks - when you're looking at the real deal, not pics taken from a POS camera - look much more marbled. It's very thin streaking throughout the whole steak. Much more marbling than any of the choice I've ever bought.

No, I'm saying you assuming that all prime steaks - the pic you showed vs. a terrible pic of mine - would all look alike is utterly ridiculous.
