Enough for the bone marrow crust verdict, now were talking a sous vide beef steak method. Well, actually this is not the real fancy equipped sous vide method with sousvide waterbath circulator and vaccum sealed pack machine involved, instead this sort of sousvide method using amateur kitchen tools, but don;t worry, i take care all the basic principle of sousvide on this recipe. The black angus striploin beef seasoned well and sealed with ziplock bag to ensure no moisture loss out of it. The waterbath only act to transfer heat evenly and slowly to the beef steak. Why the heck of sousvide method??? it’s pricey and require lot’s of energy to do. The glorious of sousvide is about the very minimum ammout of moisture loose during the cooking, it create a very moist and tender steak, trust me, it’s worthed.

Sous-vide is French term for “under vacuum”, a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times for up to 96 hours, in some cases; at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 50°C (131 °F) to 60 °C (140 °F) for meats and higher for vegetables. Sous vide also used to pasteurized egg, beef and other meat to made it save to be eaten raw without cooking it. I pasteurized my beef tenderloin to make Yukhoe (Raw Korean Seasoned Beef Steak Tartare with Asian Pear).

Submerging the Ziplock Bag Partially in Water to Pushed Out The Air

Since this is sort of-sousvide, the beef sirloin is vaccum packed with ziplock manually without any vaccum machine by simply submerged the ziplock package under water partially to pushed away the air. The ziplock package silicone seal then zipped once the air removed from the bad. This ziplock bag submerging method is quite efficient to pushed the air from the bag. Choose the heatproof and foodgrade ziplog with a good sealing quality, cheap ziplock bag may burst out while and ruined your entire pricey batch.

Sousvide Beef Sirloin Steak Using Rice Cooker Waterbath

I’m using my old rice cooker (warmer mode) for this sort of-sous vide cooking. As you can see from the photograph, my waterbath temperature was 59.1°C , but it’s actually fluctuated from 58-60°C if i put the lid on it, just perfect temperature for sousvide beef sirloin for medium done. I let the beef steak sit in the rice cooker waterbath for about 2 hours, don’t get hesitate to leave it longer int he waterbath because it’s not a single chance your steak will overcooked. The heat source of my rice cooker is on the bottom of the metal container, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with about 0.5°C range, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made the sous vide steak evenly cooked. Do not forget to submerged the vaccum packed beef sirloin completely on the waterbath during the sous vide cooking, putting some weight may help.

Note the very little ammount of juice running out of the steak, i guess it’s a good sign that not much moisture driven out during the low heat and slow cooking. I set aside the juice from the plastic bag and served it later with the steak.

The sousvide sirloin steak then seared in a sizzling and smoking hot pan until browned for about 1 and half minutes each side until the  surface had a nice brown color. A little ammount of avocado oil or other high smoke point oil added into the pan heated until smoking hot and then the fat cap of the sirloin steak rendered first before searing the meat side. Now the seared sousvide striploin steak looks delicious, and i also observed that very little ammount of juice running out of it once i  resting it after pan fried. The striploin steak consist of  Longissimus Dorsi  (large part) and Longissimus Costarum (the small part) muscles, i cut the Longissimus Costarum to let you know what’s happen inside of the sous vide steak.

Evenly Cooked Sous Vide Black Angus Sirloin Beef from Edge to Edge

Look out the sagital cut of sousvide steak, it’s evenly cooked from edge to edge of the flesh, to exactly the doneness you want. The sous vide had perfectly throughout doneness, the meat has begun to turn pink and significantly firmer. Moisture loss is still minimal and the marbled  intramuscular fat has began to render, which not only lubricates the meat, making it taste juicier and more tender, but it also delivers fat-soluble flavor compounds to the tongue. My first verdict of it, damn!!! this is the most tender and juicy steak i ever had, cross my finger!!!!

Several Doneness Level on Common Grilled Steak From the Edge into the Middle

Now we should compare the sousvide steak with my previously common grill pan Recipe Wagyu Ribeye Beef Steak with Creamy Green Peppercorn Sauce. Look out the central cut of the common grill pan steak you’re cooking with old school sizzling hot pan. This pricey wagyu ribeye had several level of doneness from the edge to edge, the edge of the steak reach much higher temperature than you ever want your food to reach and turn into overcooked and tough grey mess if you leave it a little bit too long in the pan And, even if you do achieve a medium-rare interior, the high heat environment of traditional cooking creates bands of overcooked areas around the outside. So, please use a slow cooking method from now on!!!

Now were going to yukhoe recipe. Yukhoe [jukʰwe] is a variety of hoe (raw dishes in Korean cuisine), which are usually made from raw ground beef seasoned with various spices or sauces. It is basically a Korean steak tartare. Usually the most tender part of beef will be used; tenderloin or filet mignon. The lean beef is trimmed from it’s fat , sinew or silver skin, julienned, then mixed with seasoning soy sauce, sugar. The yukhoe seasoning or marinade usually contains; salt, sesame oil, minced spring onion, minced garlic, sesame seeds, honey, black pepper, and gochujang. The salted and spiced yukhoe marinate not only infused flavour, but also cured and preserved the raw beef by creates an salt ion solute-rich environment where the salted marinade osmotic pressure draws water out of microorganisms (bacterias & parasites) and slowing down their growth.

Yukhow Raw Spicy Seasoned Beef with Asian Pear Salad

Yukhoe or Korean steak tartare uses raw beef, freshness is the most important criteria. Freshly slaughtered  preferred or it is recommended to use no more than one day after defrosting from the vaccum packed, and traditionally should not be aged more than one day after slaughtering. Regular Korean yukhoe customers are often patrons of trusted restaurants or butcher’s shops which have well-known, high-quality beef distributors, so no way making yukhoe with cheap clearance stock supermarket meat for sure. So i asked my butcher to save my beef tenderloin in a vaccum packed right after slaughtered and kept the meat in the freezer before i come to picked it up in the afternoon right after i come back from my clinic.

Nice Beef Tenderloin with Nice Marbled FatPattern (Silver Skin On)

Raw beef can be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and  other parasites, the Enterohemorrhagic E. coli and Taenia Saginata flatworm being of particular concern. In April and May 2011, five people died and more than 35 people were hospitalised after eating yukke (Japanese spelling) made from beef not designated for raw consumption in various branches of a yakiniku restaurant chain in Toyama and Kanagawa prefectures, Japan, with enterohemorrhagic E. coli bacteria found in many of the cases, so don’t make your own yukhoe unless you strickly known the savety ways to prepare and made it. DO NOT TRIMMING/REMOVED ANY SILVER SKIN or sinew before sousvided the beef tenderloin, i’ll explained it later.

Vaccum Packed Beef Tenderloin for Sous Vide Using Ziplock Plastic Bag & Water

To reduce the risk of eating raw beef, i decided to sousvide or slowly pasteurized the beef in a low temperature to kill the pathogens. Sous-vide French for “under vacuum” is a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times for p to 96 hours, in some cases; at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 50°C (131 °F) to 60 °C (140 °F) for meats and higher for vegetables. Since this is sort of-sousvide, the beef tenderloin is vaccum packed with ziplock manually without any vaccum machine bu simply submerged the ziplock package under water partially to remove the air pocket and then zipped the package silicone seal once the air removed.

Sous Vide (sort of-) using RIce Cooker without Lid, The Temperature fluctualed 50-52 C

I’m using my old rice cooker (warmer mode) for this sort of-sous vide cooking. As you can see from the photograph, my waterbath temperature was 51.8°C and it actually fluctuated from 50-52°C if i did’t put the lid, just perfect temperature for sousvide beef tenderloin for very rare or simply pasteurized it. The heat source is from the bottom of my rice cooker, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with range about 0.5°C, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made it evenly pasteurized. Do not forget to submerged the vaccum packed beef tenderloin completely on the waterbath during the sous vide cooking, put some weight may help.

The Pasteurized-Sous Vide Beef Tenderloin in Ice Water For Suddently Stop The Heat

The sousvide beef tenderloin with ziplock package then transfered into ice water to suddently cooled and stop the pasteurization process. At this stage, the beef meat is needed to be kept in low temperature to prevent the pathogen microorganism from the enviroments contaminated the beef once it cooled and opened from the package. So, keep it cold before  and during the serving.

Sous Vide Beef Tenderloin with Pale Pinkish Color, Wait Until Trimmed!!!

This is the result of 2.5 hours sousvided beef tenderloin, seems pretty pale pinkis and not so appetizing right now, but wait until you slice the beef and see what happen after you pasteurized/sousvide it in 50C. There’s only a little bit of liquid drained out from the sousvide beef, which means the meat moisture is preserved. The sinew or silverskin that covering the beef tenderloin then peeled and all the discolored part of the sousvide beef then removed, you may use this part for other stif fry recipe, but it’s definitely not nice for making yukhoe or Korean style raw beef steak tartare, this is why i told you before to not trimming the beef before sousvide cooking.

Look the georgeous Core Meat Color, Remove the Discolored Outler Layer with Cold Knives on a Chilled Chopping Board

Eversince my sousvide is definitely not to cook but to pasteurized it, so the result is raw beef but definitely savety to eaten raw, so i decide to use my old rice cookerfor making sous vide beef. My rice cooker can maintain the temperature about 50-52°C without putting it’s cover, just perfect to pasteurized the beef.FDA recomend to sous vide Raw Beef (Tenderloin) for makeing beef tartare  in 50°C for at least 60 minutes and not more than 36 hours, eversince i want to maintain the “rawness” of the beef so i decide to sous vide it for 2 and half hours to let the inner core of the beef reach the target internal temperature for at least 1 hour. This sousvide beef tenderloin method also a confirmation of Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) new regulations  to require cooking the beef surface 1 cm deep to further reduce contamination after the enterohemorrhagic E. Coli  death incidence.

Remember always keep the sousvided “raw” beef tenderloin cold, righ after the silverskin and all the discolored part removed, then clean and chilled wooden chopping board and knive uses for thinly julienned the beef tenderloin.
