Ingredients

Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Other Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Marinate the Steak: In a small bowl, add balsamic vinegar, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, black pepper, and olive oil. Mix well.
  • Add flank steak to a zip-top bag, and pour the marinade into the bag.
  • Coat the meat thoroughly and vacuum seal the bag using “water displacement” technique: seal all but one corner of the bag, and slowly place it into a container with cold water. Make sure everything below the zip-line is covered by water. Then seal the rest of the bag.
  • Let it marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Sous Vide the Steak: Add water to the sous vide container or a large pot, set the Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 135°F (57°C) for medium rare doneness. This is my recommended doneness, and if you’d like to cook it more or less, follow the temperature guide in the post above.
  • When the steak is ready, place the vacuum-sealed bag in the water bath. Make sure the meat is completely submerged.
  • Cook for 2 hours.
  • When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath.
  • Sear: Wipe off any extra moisture from the cooked steak with paper towel.
  • Place the skillet on medium-high heat and add olive oil. When the pan is very hot, add your steak and sear about 1 minute per side.
  • Slice your steak thinly against the grain and serve with your favorite sauce.
