Why we Love this Recipe

Well of course we love this recipe because it is easy and only has two ingredients, right? But to be honest you are going to love it as this really is the best way to cook any steak.

Cooking sous vide allows you to seal in the flavour and moisture into a steak and an expensive cut like wagyu.

I have added my secret way to sear the wagyu after cooking the steak in water. Trust me this is the way you will cook from now on!

Sous Vide Wagyu Ingredients

Yes, this is all you need to cook the best steak ever! Let’s not over complicate it.

Wagyu – for this recipe I used a wagyu porterhouse. (Also known as striploin, strip, sirloin, top loin, New York Strip to name a few). Wagyu does come in a range of marble scores. For this recipe I used wagyu sourced from local Woolworths supermarket. Alternative cuts you could use would be a scotch fillet, rump cap, rump, or even pork shoulder steaks for this recipe.

Salt Flakes – I low Cell Squared Salt Flakes or Maldon Salt Flakes. They are just the “right” amount of saltiness for me. Please use salt flakes and not iodized or fine salt for this recipe.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Remove steak from the fridge. Salt both sides liberally with salt flakes. Leave at room temperature while bringing the sous vide bath up to 54.5°C. I use the Anova Precision Cooker.

Step 2. Seal the wagyu in a sous vide bag. I use the Luvele Deluxe PRO Vacuum Sealer.

Tips for Success and FAQs

Can I use any cut of meat?

Yes, you can. Wagyu is not essential.

What does the salt do?

The salt flavours the meat when in cooking in a sous vide bath. In the frying pan salt helps seal and form a delicious crust on the outside of the beef. This is my preferred way to prepare any cut of beef or pork.

Can I Sous Vide in my Thermomix or Magimix?

Yes, you can. It is recommended to add lemon juice to a bath of water in the mixer (enough to cover the steaks but do not go above the max line). Preheat the mixer for 15 min/Sous Vide/55°C. Place the sealed steaks into the bowl and cook; 1hr 45 min/Sous Vide/55°C. To sous vide in the Magimix Cook Expert simply add 1.75l of water to the mixer. Heat to 55°C. Add the sealed bag into the bath and cook; speed 0/55°C/1hr 45 min.

What to serve with sous vide wagyu steaks?

I served the very delicious Blackberry & Cucumber Salad from our cookbook Every Day Keto. Another delicious side or sauce would be our Mushroom Sauce or a simple salad of green leaves.

I don’t have a vacuum sealer appliance can I do it some other way?

You can by using what is called the water displacement method. Place the seasoned steaks into a ziplock bag (use a quality brand as cheaper ones may not withstand the heat) do not zip up. Slowly lower the bag into a sink of water and seal the bag once the air is removed.

I don’t have a vacuum sealer appliance can I do it in my oven?

You can sous vide in an oven if you can set to low temperatures. Set the oven for approximately 70°C and place a large baking dish into the oven filled with water. Use a temperature gauge to monitor the temperature of the water until it is consistently at or around 55°C. You will need a slightly higher oven temp than the 55°C to heat the water and maintain it. Then follow the recipe in the recipe card.

    What a fantastic way to cook wagu beef.
    We found it at our local Woolworths on sale . I was a bit excited as we have never cooked or bought wagu steak before.
    I used the sous vide method and it was a perfect medium rare after we seared and sealed it in the cast iron pan .
    The steak cut like butter and the flavour was better than steak we have ordered in a restaurant.
    I will be using this recipe to cook our steaks in the future.
    Absolutely brilliant and so easy .
