Holiday season means heavy discounts on roasts at our local shop. Bought a 3 lb double-cut and cooked over oak. Left the rib cap in one piece, but trimmed heavily.

RIGHT?!? I was yelling at my screen. It's gotta be an ad for their accessories... because I'm going to go buy heat deflectors to cook a steak? Oh wait, let me put oil on my griddle to sear it off. It's got 800k views, too!!!

Annual Christmas Eve, Eve party, finally tried the reverse sear on the tenderloin which turned out great (from Costco) but the best of show was the wife’s crab cakes cooked in the wood fired oven with a chipotle remoulade.

In this case, the steak is actually sous vide IN the sauce. All the new Chefsteps' sauces are designed to be stable during sous vide, and combine with the bag juices to create sauces to be served with the protein.

So a pre-sear has the two-fold effect of adding flavor to the sauce and making the meat look prettier. However, it's not really feasible or desirable to do a post-sear, since the meat is covered in sauce. I suppose you could scrap the sauce off, dry the meat, do a post-sear, and then add the sauce again, but that would be kind of a pain in the ass and defeat the purpose of these shelf-stable, sous vide sauces, which all come with recommended quick side dish recipes and are in some ways intended as competitors of meal kits like Blue Apron (although you obviously have to go to the grocery store in this case). Something quick, easy, and amazing to serve your family after work, which is exactly what the dish in my picture was.

https://shop.chefsteps.com/collections/joule-ready

The sauces are actually excellent, and if I served one to you blind, you would never know they came out of a can (or a bag in this case, since they come in ziplock sous vide bags). Although this is supposed to be a quick, easy meal, the sauces are so good I've been thinking of cheating at my next dinner party lol. They did produce a "limited edition" Périgord Black Truffle Sauce for the holidays that I bought a few of, so I may give that a shot.

In a more general sense, a pre-sear is actually quite common. Obviously it is the basis of the traditional restaurant way to cook a steak, as opposed to the so-called "reverse sear" (such a non-sensical confusing term, just call it a post-sear!). For sous vide, as noted above, a pre-sear is valuable because it can add flavor to the sous vide bag, and any sauce you make from the resulting bag juices. After sous vide, you can do a second post-sear to refresh the crust.

A pre-sear (often without a post-sear) is my preferred way to cook pork chops. Put the chops in the freezer for 15 minutes to get them nice and cold, pre-sear, sous vide, and then plate (or do a quick post-sear). Searing cold meat minimizes the chances of over-cooking the pork, which is easy to do. If you are adding a sauce and covering up the protein, the sear after sous vide is less valuable anyway.

God, thats looks so good...meat, fat, and more fat!!!! I feel like Guy whats his name...the idea of the pre-sear and then the sous vide seems quite brilliant...

How can you tell the meat looks prettier when it is swimming in sauce? Serious question.

First attempt at a reverse sear ((January in Chicagoland) .... turned out pretty good considering a ribeye from the local meat market. The wine wasn’t too bad either.

And texture. I love that crisp outside you get from a sear; I don’t want to lose that letting it sit in sauce for hours on end. Love your posts, in general, but I have a hard time following you on this one.

Picked up a nicely marbled rib eye at the farmers market today. Never heard of Grazin’ Angus Acres before but I’ll give it a try tomorrow night.

Well-marbled bavette from Scotch Mountain Farms (Meaford, ON) that I've dry cured overnight in the fridge for tonight's supper.

I also have my butcher dry aging another bone-in ribeye for me. It's got about seven weeks total age on it right now. Corn, pea, and alfalfa finish from Wallenstein Farm near Welland, ON. I think it needs another 2-3 weeks on it before I'll have it trimmed and broken down for me.

It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

Ribeye steaks from Wegmans, pre-seared briefly, then sous vide 135°F x 90 min in ChefSteps' Sauce au Poivre, with sous vide herbed baby Yukon Gold potatoes, baby onions, broccoli rabe
Now that is some serious steak porn. Tip of the cap there buddy!

Here’s the steak after a reverse sear with some duck fat roasted potatoes and maitake mushrooms.

Simmental Cote de boeuf last night. Not as tender as I am used to, but pretty to look at.

Wow, Bill, that pre-trimmed color is so dark! I've contemplated trying dry-aging. I haven't admit, though, seeing that color might have made me worry a bit! Post-trimming they look great. Not your first time, I take it.

Nope. It can get dark and even covered in white mold. None of that is out of the norm for dry aging one bit. If you have a sub-primal in CryoVac and it hasn't been jaccard tenderized, no fear as that dark "jerky" on the surface actually protects the meat inside.

To emphasize your white mold statement, Bill, you can see some white mold on the outside of the bone-in subprimal my butcher is aging for me a few posts up.

I’m assuming you’re using an iPhone to take pics? If so, go into the Edit function of the pic, make a minor edit, and save. I just crop it. Then the pic will upload and post correctly.
