How to Sous Vide a New York Strip Steak


Guest post by Karen Reinsberg and Gavin Booth from Couple in the Kitchen.

There is no easier way to cook a steak, than to sous vide. We’ve been big fans of the sous vide cooking method for many years. This method of cooking used to be reserved for fancy restaurants, but now since the development of affordable at-home sous vide models, anyone can make a restaurant quality steak at home. Talk about an affordable date night!

Sous vide may seem intimidating, but it is as easy as using a slow cooker. Sous vide is simply the method of cooking food in a bag by leaving it in a temperature controlled water bath.  

We can give you an endless list of why we love cooking our steaks with a sous vide. To put it simply, you’ll cook it exactly to your preferred temperature every time. You can infuse your steak with flavors while it cooks by using ingredients like rubs, butter, and fresh herbs. Plus, the steak’s natural flavorful fat will melt into the meat instead out onto your grill.

Sous vide cooking time for New York strip

The minimum cooking time for a New York strip steak is one hour. We recommend cooking your steak in the sous vide for 2 hours. 

Avoiding leaving a steak in the sous vide for longer than 4 hours. Although you can’t technically “overcook” your meat, if you leave your steak in the sous vide for too long, it will impact the texture of your food.
