Sous vide beef prime topside joint
An experiment at sous vide cooking a beef roasting joint to rare/medium rare. This is being cooked for a friend for looking after our boys - Meow!
Cook sous vide for 10 hours at 57°C (134.6°F)
- 625 g prime topside - The underside had a layer of fat which I left intact after much work with the tenderiser.
- 4 spring onions
- Bunch of sage
- 2 bay leaves
- Bunch of thyme
- 1 tablespoon English mustard
- Pinch of salt and black pepper
- Stamp the join all over with a meat tenderiser
- Seal one end of a vacuum bag
- Add a pinch of salt and pepper
- Paint the joint with 1 tablespoon of English mustard
- Add the joint to the bag, hold it closed and shake it to distribute the salt and pepper
- Arrange the spring onions and herbs equally around the joint
- Vacuum seal
- Cook sous vide for 10 hours at 57°C (134.6°F)
- After 10 hours, open the bag and discard everything but the beef, you might have to pick some of the twiggy bits out as they can get 'buried'
- Seal the joint for 2 minutes in a very hot pan that is lightly oiled, blowtorch can also be used
- Serve immediately, or refrigerate and store for cold sliced beef
