  1. Step 1 Prepare to Sous Vide Ribeye

    Season the steak liberally with salt and pepper. Place in a heavy-duty Ziploc bag with the thyme, garlic, rosemary and lemon. Insert the Napoleon Bluetooth Accuprobe Thermometer into the centre of the steak running parallel with the bone. Seal the bag as far as possible to the braided wire.

  2. Step 2 Sous Vide Ribeye Steak for 2 hours

    Preheat a pot of water fitted with a sous-vide immersion circulator to 130°F according to the manufacturer's directions. Cook the steak for 2 hours, making sure it is completely submerged in the water. Once the internal temperature is the same as the Immersion circulator, the steak is cooked. Adding more time in the water will result in a more tender texture. Remove the entire bag from the pot and carefully pull out the cooked ribeye steak, drying with paper towels.

    Preheat the infrared burner until very hot. Place the steak at a 45-degree angle for about 1-2 minutes. Rotate 45-degrees to get diamond sear marks, for another 1-2 minutes. Flip and repeat to build a nice crust.

  4. Step 4 Garnish the Ribeye Steak
