  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 30 mins
  • Yields: 1 serving


1 frozen steak - any cut will work just fine. We find that pre-seasoning before freezing produces the best results, but it isn't strictly necessary.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp unsalted butter



1Preheat your water bath to 129 degrees Fahrenheit for a medium-rare steak.

2Cook the steak for 1.5 times its suggested cook time. This is largely based on thickness. For instance if your steak is 1-inch thick you would cook it for 1.5 hours rather than the standard 1-hr. Generally speaking every quarter inch adds and extra 15-minutes to the cook.

3When the steak is done remove it from the water bath and pat very dry.


1Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a pan and heat until shimmering.

2Add the steaks to the pan along with the butter. Using a spoon baste the steaks with the butter as it melts - tilting the pan slightly makes this easier.

3Cook your steak for 30 seconds to 1-minute per side - we only want to develop a crust.

4Remove the steak from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes to allow any juices shocked by the pan sear to be reabsorbed.

5Finally, plate and serve - ideally with your favorite Scotch Whiskey.
