Select grade rib eye

In the Modernist Recipes Forum
I have two of your books, and have a question. With the price of meat going up, there is more and more select grade steaks being offered, is there a way to sous vide them to a tender stage, most recipes available are for choice of prime, and some of us on a fixed retirement need to be frugal. I have a Anova One, and would appreciate any help I can get, I have plenty of time to test some methods. Thanking you in advance...Bob from, Nashville, TN

Hi Bob, thanks for writing in. In general, you can just up the cooking time by maybe 15% to 30% and it would make it more tender. You could also look at purchasing choice or prime of less expensive cuts, I love chuck roast cooked for 36-48 hours (turns out like ribeye) and it's pretty inexpensive. Same with some sirloin cuts.

I hope that'll give you a few options to save some money, let me know how it turns out!
