It depends on the thickness of the steak. It normally adds 30 to 45 minutes but for an exact time you can check out our <a href="http://www.cookingsousvide.com/info/sous-vide-equipment/more/sous-vide-thickness-ruler">sous vide thickness ruler</a>.

My preference is to cook London Broil for 24 hours at 131 degrees F. With that kind of extended cooking time, starting from frozen doesn't make a whole lot of difference. There is one thing, though. Frozen meats have cell walls penetrated by ice crystals, so they lose juices and toughen easily. If you have the choice of never freezing the meat the results might please you more. Once the meat has been frozen, the sous vide technique is highly desirable to rescue a pleasing texture.
