Sous Vide | Basics with Babish

  • Published on Aug 9, 2018
  • This week on Basics I’m teaching you how to Sous Vide. Sous Vide has become a home kitchen essential over the past few years providing restaurant quality results at an affordable price point. It can help make the perfect steak medium rare, the perfect tender pork chop or even safe to eat cookie dough.
    NOTE: Raw flour can still contain pathogens - pasteurize your flour by baking separately for 10 minutes at 350F!
    Ingredients & Grocery List:
    Peeled Ginger
    Green onion

    Porterhouse steak
    Olive oil
    Bacon fat
    Special Equipment:

    I read somewhere that a sous vide medium steak is more like a medium rare any other steak. Like because normally there's a temperature gradient and you measure in the middle maybe? Either way if you sous vide to rare it won't melt the marbled fat but sous vide-ing to medium will still be super delish/juicy/soft and in a blind tasting typical rare lovers preferred sous vide medium. But I have no references here for you haha (I'm only getting my cooker next week)

    Just a small point to consider putting butter with the other herbs and garlic into the bag will yield better results.

    you don't need a sous vide to pasteurize eggs for cookie dough. I do it in a pan with a standard thermometer.

    If you let the steak cool a bit (or even freeze and finish later) before you sear it you can skip worrying about over cooking. Just cook it to the doneness you want then dry and freeze or fridge it without opening the bag. Then if you've frozen it you can warm it up in the sous vide again or the microwave might even work, just be careful to not heat it too much. Just bring it to 5-10F below the target eating temp. If the steak has just been in the fridge, not frozen, you can just let it come to room temperature then the heat from the searing will likely bring it up to yummy temp.
    If you don't want to fill your house with smoke you can use an electric heat gun, blowtorch or outdoor grill to sear the steak instead of cast iron with oil. While they all work, the electric heat gun is potentially slower than the torch (depends on the torch) but doesn't risk butane or other gas flavors and you don't have to wait for a grill to heat up or fill your house with smoke.

      No, that is not necessary because of the sous vide technique rather than a more traditional method like grilling or pan-frying or broiling. Notice how little juice is on the table after cutting up this thicc-ass steak.

  • Harry S

    Great technique . I would , though, pre heat cast iron in oven (even heating ) to a screaming 500 degrees , first . Sear each side for 30 sec. and prepare sauce in the empty pan, first lifting the rendering with some liquid .( almost no grey ring) For me that , that would take your excellent steak to the heavenly level

    What's interesting is that in the UK is that over a year ago the food standards agency declared that raw eggs were safe to eat, even by vulnerable groups such as pregnant women and the elderly. But in the UK, we treat our eggs and hens differently, as the hens are vaccinated and the eggs are pasteurised..

    Your cookie dough was not fully edible, you have have pasteurized the eggs but E coli can also be found in raw flour, baking them at around 70°C or 158°F will be enough to kill all the germs than the cookie dough would theoretically be "edible"

    You didn't even dry the surface of the meat before searing. which is why your crust wasn't very good. Always pat down the surface of the meat and allow it to air dry for a few min before searing otherwise you will steam the surface and end up with grey spots.
