Sous-vide Wagyu beef


1 beef tenderloin
2 springs of fresh thyme
2 green asparagus
1 medium carrot
1 baby turnip
4 shimanji mushrooms
1 salsify
1 potato
100ml milk
50gr unsalted butter
1 red pepper
Black truffle oil, to taste
Himalayan salt and coarse ground black pepper, to taste
Micro cress leaves for garnish


Set the temperature of the Sous Vide Professional to desired temperature.
Beef Temperature Guidelines
Rare: 120°F / 49°C
Medium Rare: 134°F / 56.5°C
Medium: 140°F / 60°C
Medium Well: 150°F / 65.5°C
Well Done: 160°F / 71°C

Season the beef with Himalayan salt and black pepper.

Place beef into the bag, along with sprig of thyme and black truffle olive oil. Vacuum seal beef and place in circulating water bath and cook until target core temperature is reached.

Remove cooked beef from bath and carefully open pouch. Gently dry on paper towel to absorb excess moisture and sear evenly in hot pan or grill. Rest 60 seconds and slice. Sous vide beef does not require but a few moments to rest.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, purée the red pepper gently using black truffle oil and season with Himalayan salt. Sauté the shimanji in black truffle oil and prepare the potato purée. Also cut the carrot, baby turnip and the asparagus in small pieces, blanch them and keep them warm.

To decorate the plate, peel and slice the salsify. Roll it like a spiral round of a metal tube and bake it in 180°C for 8 minutes.

Serve the wagyu beef in a plate and garnish with potato purée, red pepper purée and the rest of the vegetables. On top of the beef you place the salsify spiral and the micro cress leaves. Drizzle with natural beef jus.
