Sous Vide Sirloin Steak Recipe

Now that spring is finally coming around (or at least it was until it snows later this week), it's time to start grilling. There's lots of ways to utilize sous vide with your grill but sometimes you just want a simple meal with some grill flavor.

This sous vide sirloin steak meets those requirements. It only needs about 5 minutes of prep time and finishing time and you will be in rich, beefy heaven. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most enjoyable.

It uses some simple seasonings to help flavor the sous vide sirloin steak while it is cooking. You can substitue any seasonings you prefer. Often times I'll add in some ancho or chipotle chile powder to give it a little bit of a kick.

You then make a simple compound butter with some fresh herbs. The herbs in the butter add some lightness to the dish while the butter adds great richness. You can substitute any of the herbs and try out other combinations you like.

Once the sous vide sirloin steak is done you quickly grill it and then put a few dollops of butter on top and you're all set. It's great served with grilled vegetables, I really enjoy it with grilled peppers and onions, or just a simple side salad.

This recipe is from our book Sous Vide Grilling. For more sous vide recipes and cooking tips you can read that book or our comprehensive Beginning Sous Vide. We also have many more cooking times available on our iPhone and Android App and sous vide thickness iPhone app.

To make the butter place all of the butter ingredients in a bowl and mix and mash thoroughly using a fork.
