How To Cook Sous Vide Flat Iron

Flat Iron is a tender cut of beef, mostly comprised of protein and fat. As a result, flat iron is best cooked by bringing it up to your desired temperature, but not letting it cook for an extended period of time.

Traditionally, cooking techniques like grilling or sauteing are used to cook tender cuts of beef, like flat iron. This allows flat iron to be cooked to the full range of temperatures, from rare to well done. Sous vide's primary benefit for this type of cut is that it can produce edge-to-edge consistency of doneness. If you like your flat iron medium, you don't need to have a range of doneness from medium well at the edges to medium in the center.

Our advice with Flat Iron is to cook it at a temperature you like and not to exceed a couple of hours (depending on the thickness of the cut). The goal is to bring the beef up to the temperature you want.
