Sous Vide Cooking Chart

Sous vide is a French phrase, literally meaning “under vacuum.” This cooking technique utilizes a temperature-controlled water bath to cook the food slowly and evenly. This process ensures that the inside of your steak (or other meat) is cooked to your exact doneness to deliver restaurant-quality results every time.

To cook a steak using the sous vide method, attach an immersion cooker to any water-filled pot and put your Omaha Steak (still in its vacuum-sealed package) into the pot. Or you can remove your Omaha Steak from its vacuum-sealed package, season with salt and pepper, and place it into a sealable bag with butter, garlic cloves and your choice of fresh herbs, if desired.

Then, set the time and temperature on your immersion cooker based on your desired results according to the cooking charts below.
