Our take on how to cook the best sous vide ribeye steak. Cooking it at this temperature allows the fat to render down, ensuring you get a nice, tender and juicy ribeye steak.


  • Salt

  • Ribeye steak (preferably minimum 1.5 Inch / x CM thick)

  • Oil (preferably one which can handle high heat, like Avocado Oil)

  • Optional: Rosmary

  • Optional: Butter


  • Start by prepping your water bath (see our article on which container you can use here) and dialing in your sous vide equipment.
    The temperature should be set at 58.3 °C / 137 °F.
  • Prep your meat by patting it dry and rub it in salt to your liking.
  • Place your meat in a bag and vacuum it (or use a Ziploc bag if that is how you roll).Vacuuming Ribeye Steak
  • Place your meat in your water bath and leave it for 2 hours or 120 minutes.
  • Optional: Close to the 2 hour mark. If you plan to cool your steak in an ice bath you should now prepare this.
  • Once 2 hours have passed, take your ribeye steak out of the sous vide water bath.
  • Start heating up your pan or grill. You want this to be blazing hot once we are ready to sear the steak.
  • Ice bath: Leave your steak in the bag you used for sous vide and place into the ice bath. Leave it for a couple of minutes.

    Freezer: Take the ribeye steak out of the sous vide bag, rub the ribeye steak dry. Place it on a paper towel on a rack or plate and leave it for 10 minutesSteak about to go into icebath
  • Finish off by frying or grilling your steak for 1-1.5 min on each side on your blazing hot pan or grill in order to build up a nice crust.Pan-frying Ribeye Steak
  • Optional: If frying in a pan I would suggest to baste the steak in butter and rosemary just as you are about done with frying the steak – this really gives it the final cherry on top!

  • Placing your steak into an ice bath or in the freezer immediately after you finish sous vide is critical in order to achieve the best possible result.
  • You should look for a great fatty steak with a nice marbling. The more marbling the better! Do not be afraid of the marbling, this is all flavor and juiciness!
