Sous Vide Prime Rib

Sous vide is a modern technique for slowly cooking vacuum-sealed food. One of the benefits of cooking a rib roast sous vide is achieving precision medium rare doneness. By finishing the roast in an oven, you’ll also get a perfect crust! Note: You will need an immersion circulator for this technique. A vacuum sealer is ideal, but you could just use a 2 gallon, heavy-duty, zip-top bag for the roast. Be sure to get as much air out as you can and keep it submerged.

  • 5 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® boneless ribeye roast
  • 2 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon coarse cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  1. Season ribeye roast evenly with salt and pepper, making sure to fully coat roast in seasoning.
  2. Set up immersion circulator and preheat water to 131°F. (You will need a container that can hold at least 3 gallons of water and account for water displacement when adding roast).
  3. Place roast in a vacuum bag and vacuum seal, making sure air is removed and seal is intact. Alternatively, place in a zip-top bag, remove as much air as possible and seal.
  4. Place roast in water bath; cook 6 to 10 hours. (Our tests show that after 14 hours, the roast’s texture becomes mushy.)
  5. Preheat oven to 500°F. Remove roast from the bag, pat dry with paper towels and coat exterior with canola oil. Place in a roasting pan affixed with a rack. Roast 15 minutes until dark crust is formed.
  6. Carefully transfer roast to cutting board, rest at least 5 minutes before slicing.
