To celebrate Amazon Prime Day we created a delicious recipe for a sous vide prime rib (see what we did there?). This smoky, BBQ-flavored beef rib tastes like it's been cooked on the grill but it's actually been cooked sous vide and just finished with a coating of smoked salt - so is super tender and a perfect medium rare from edge to edge. This recipe is ideal for people who don't have a grill or for those occasions when you don’t have the time to fire up the grill - although if you do want to finish it on the grill then by all means do, and revel in doubly smoky goodness.
Ingredients for 2
2 500g prime rib steaks
4 tbs butter (2 for cooking sous vide, 2 for finishing)
Preheat Anova sous vide machine to 125.6F (52C), seal steaks in bags with 2 tbs butter, put in water bath and set timer to 24 hours.
After 24 hours
Take the prime ribs out of the bag, pat dry with a paper towel, and rub in a generous amount of smoked salt and pepper into the meat.
Sear the prime ribs in a large skillet on high with butter.
