I love a huge, fancy ribeye with a nice demi-glace and some wine, but sometimes I just need something quick for a weeknight meal! When that's the case, I love to turn to this sous vide ribeye dish. It is served on a simple white bean puree with some garlicky kale. It comes together really quick but is still full of great flavor.
I'm lucky to have several great butchers in my area, but sometimes I want to up my game and will turn to Snake River Farms, they have a wide variety of beef including Prime, American Wagyu , and dry aged. I also enjoy trying the different ranchers that Crowd Cow has available including their wagyu.

Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it has softened. Add the garlic, paprika, chipotle powder, orange peel, and thyme then cook until the garlic has softened.

Once the cooked white bean mixture has cooled, stir in the lemon juice then puree it well. Add the cream and puree to mix.
Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the kale, garlic, ginger, and vinegar then cover and let cook until the kale is tender, about 10 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding small amounts of water as needed.
Take the sous vide bag out of the water bath and remove the ribeye from the bag. Dry it off thoroughly with a paper towel or dish cloth. Quickly sear the meat for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until just browned, then remove it from the heat. Slice the ribeye.
Place the white bean puree on a plate then add the garlic kale next to it. Place the slices of ribeye on top. Add the cherry tomatoes around the outside. Sprinkle with the thyme leaves and sea salt then serve.
