First Sous Vide Failure

I cooked the flat iron steak last night until this morning for 12 hours at 134F and cooled it quickly in an ice bath this morning so I could heat it up, sear it, and serve it for dinner tonight.  Lesson learned, since flat iron is quite a well marbled piece of meat 12 hours was FAR too long, it was one notch from being mush and simply couldn’t be eaten.   We live to learn, next time 2 hours tops for the flat iron.

The 24 hour flank turned out to be a winner though.  I still need to tweak the seasonings a little, but it was tender almost fillet like.

Tomorrow night I’m going to do a chicken breast and this weekend will be salmon. More on the way…
