DIY Sous Vide Short Ribs



I posted this last week:

Newest Kitchen Gadget

Well I decided on some short ribs for my first go at it:

Started with 4 bone-in short ribs (one was too small)


Trimmed some of the fat and seasoned well with S/P and some rosemary.


Marinated for 10-12 hours with some beef stock and red wine:


Vacuum sealed, threw in some chopped garlic and sliced onions:


Put in water bath at 136 degrees, let go for 48 hours:


Here is a picture of what I had to stare at for two days...


Took bags out last night:


Let rest for a few minutes (probably not necessary) then de-boned and trimmed silver skin from bottoms.


In the meantime whipped up some cheesy/buttery grits and made a sauce from what liquid was left in the bags after straining it. Added some extra stock and red wine and reduced.


Seared ribs to get a good char, then cut them into more manageable pieces.


Dished it up and enjoyed!


Overall it wasn't as "fork tender" as i was expecting, but i didn't want it falling apart either. Tender as can be when chewing just had to use a knife to cut up a little.

Now to decide what I will do next.

I'm usually not one to be a nervous-nelly type about these sorts of things, but wouldn't that present some food safety issues?

Short ribs w/ cheesy grits + a reduction of stock and wine may be my favorite meal of all time. And you fricking killed it.

I never even thought of using my temperature controllers and crock pot together.

Don't get me wrong, I'm in agreement with everyone here in that it looks scrumptious. That just sort of jumped out at me as curious, and was wondering if that was possibly an issue.

re: DIY Sous Vide Short Ribs


it is true the danger zone is as proscribed... however that danger zone is presumptive of oxygen availability. the vacuum packed food is in a near zero environment and this changes the temperature requirements for bacteria growth. if i remember correctly... his short ribs were actually pasteurized after two hours at that temperature.

p.s. to the OP... you can cut down your marinade time to about an hour if you vacuum packed the marinade with the protein. break the seal and repack the protein sans marinade before sous vide.

Thanks for the edification. I was thinking the vacuum sealing might come into play there.

I wanna try that!
I was reading a David Chang cookbook recently where he talked about how his staff invented the "ghetto sous vide" technique. It involved Ziploc bags and sucking the air out of the bag with a straw.

I wish I could have, I don't have a vacuum sealer, had to borrow one and it was an older model. I am definitely in the market now, any recommendations that's aren't ridiculously $$?

Thanks for all the compliments!
