Hey folks,

I have successfully done a couple of venison roast at 131° for 24 hours.

now I’ve got a few venison steaks which were marinating overnight and I vacuum sealed them. They are about 3/4 of an inch thick. Can you guys give me a general idea of how long I need to put these in the sous vide?

thanks!

I did these 125 for 2 hours and turned out great.

Not sure how you like them but like I like a little on the rare side. Just do at what temp you like. Venison does not need to go long. I going to use that Black Hardcore on next ones.

I did mine for 3 hrs @ 120 and then pan seared for 1 minute each side in a fairly hot pan and they turned out beautiful.

With backstrap steaks you'll only need a couple hrs. I've found with hindquarter steaks you'll need longer. At 3/4 inch thick make sure you're pan is screaming hot as they'll over cook quickly during the sear.

Yes I learned that very quickly. Typically we like it medium rare. However on the last attempt the pan wasn’t quite hot enough so it turned out medium

I think the next time I’m going to cook them in the sous vide to 120° Then pan sear them at high heat

thanks again for all the advice!
