The inside turns out a perfect medium. It’s tender and juicy. The outside crust is drenched in garlic butter and seared in a cast iron pan to achieve the perfect “bark”. And all you need is a couple of ingredients and the perfect sous vide time and temperature for T Bone steak. You can also finish this recipe on the grill. So go ahead and sharpen those steak knives… let’s get cooking!
Such a beautiful cut of meat deserves special treatment. Yes, there are other methods to preparing steak – grilling, pan-frying, oven baking, etc. So many people ask if steak made sous vide is better than grilling or any of these other methods – and I believe 100% YES.
Especially for people who don’t have much experience cooking steak. It is a completely fool-proof way to cook steak evenly. It’s very difficult to overcook sous vide steak.

Pictured in this is a 1.25″ thick T Bone steak from Oak Barn Beef. They ship gorgeous cuts of beef from Nebraska to your doorstep.
Their beef is dry aged for 21 days, just like you’d expect from a high-end steakhouse. They even obsess over premium DNA testing! Have you ever heard of such a thing? It’s pretty amazing how much they care about quality.
Did you know? T bone steak has two popular cuts in it: the filet tenderloin and NY Strip.
Yes, add 60 minutes to the sous vide bath time to cook T bone steak from frozen.
This is a great option if you want to buy a bunch of steaks in advance. Season the steaks prior to vacuum sealing and freezing so it’s easy to pull them out and cook them.
Set the sous vide machine to 130 degrees. I made this recipe with my Anova.
Pat the T bone steak dry and season it salt. Top it with shallots and cilantro, then vacuum seal it.
If you are sous viding multiple T bones, vacuum seal them in separate bags (since they are so big). If you vacuum seal them in the same bag, make sure they aren’t touching.
Sous vide the T bone at 130 degrees for 2.5 hours for medium-rare to medium.
In the following steps you can finish the steak to desired temperature in the cast iron pan. I like this method to prevent overcooking the steak.
