Sous Vide London Broil Recipe

We love sous vide cooking, and with more and more affordable options coming onto the market, there are more people than ever getting into sous vide cooking.

What is sous vide?

Sous vide is basically cooking in a hot water bath, at relatively low temperatures. It allows you to cook evenly, hold things over without overcooking them, and the low-and-slow gentle cooking can make even relatively tough cuts of meat tender.

What is a London Broil?

Even though at the grocery store there is meat in a package that is labeled “London Broil”, there isn’t actually a cut of beef that a butcher would consider to be “London Broil”. London Broil is actually a cooking method, as opposed to a specific cut of meat. The method of cooking a London Broil is just like the name says, to broil. We’re switching things up here a little by doing a sous vide before the final sear.

How to make Sous Vide London Broil

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.

1

Seal the meat

Dry the meat well and then give it a rub down with some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and carefully place it into the vacuum seal bag. Vacuum seal following factory directions.

2

Sous Vide

Sous vide at 130°F for 8-12 hours.

Please note, typically we prefer steaks cooked no more than 125° degrees, but when sous vide cooking for long periods of time it is important to not cook below 130° for food safety.

3

Sear

Remove the London Broil from the pouch and place into a hot cast-iron pan with some melted butter. Let it cook for 3-4 minutes and then flip to sear the other side of the meat as well.

4

Rest

Rest the roast for 10-15 minutes before slicing.

Sous Vide London Broil FAQ

How do you store leftovers?

We usually use a plastic baggie to store ours, but any kind of airtight storage container will work!

What’s the best way to reheat leftovers?

Pan frying is great for this. You can also throw it back in a sous vide if you want to, but that’s pretty extra just for a few leftovers. You do you, though!

Are there any substitutions for an actual sous vide machine?

I’ve heard some people have success doing sous vide cooking in an Instant Pot, but I haven’t experimented or tested so do your research first, or better yet, pick up one of these sous vide machines.
