Rib-eye steak onion sage and red pepper

A little experiment with our favourite cut of beef and a few simple flavourings.

I've used one large rib-eye steak (370 g) which will be plenty for 2 people.

This piece of steak has been flavoured with 4 slices of onion, 4 small slices of red pepper and 4 large sage leaves. The only other flavouring is a good pinch of black pepper. Don't add any salt as this would just dehydrate the steak as it cooks.

  1. Sprinkle the steaks with a good pinch of black pepper - no salt!
  2. Layer the onion slices, red pepper and sage leaves over either side of the steaks.
  3. Vacuum seal the steak in a sous-vide bag
  4. Cook sous-vide for 10 hours at 62° C [143° F]
  5. Remove the steak from the bag
  6. Reserve the juices if you want to make gravy from them
  7. Discard the onion, pepper and sage leaves
  8. Quickly sear the steaks for a minute on each side in a hot, lightly oiled frying pan or with a blowtorch

Serving suggestions

Serve with chips, tomatoes and a little salad.

Chef's notes

By all means cook 2 separate steaks, in 2 sous-vide bags.

Air fried chips are best with this!

This was very nice, looked well-done but tasted rare. Would like to try the same recipe but with a teaspoon of butter added to the sous-vide bag.
