Trader Joe's Tri Tip sous vide - my fave steak

Trader Joe's Santa Maria Tri Tip = my fave steak

Great flavor. Less fat than Rib Eye my second fave.
Delicious leftovers warmed to room temp or barely warm in salads.

What I do:
- Buy the Trader Joe's pre-marinated Santa Maria tri tip. Trader Joe's seasoning is perfect. Saves a ton of time and 1 big procedural step (marinading).

- Remove from packing bag. Trim most of the silver skin. There was hardly any on this one. This makes me happy because I dislike trimming silver skin.

- Put in a ZipLoc bag from a box clearly labeled to have no BPAs. (? right name?)

- Sous vide @ 133.5 degrees F for 9 hours. I do not add anything - no seasoning, no oil, before it goes into the hot tub.

- After 8-9 hours, remove from Sous Vide. Dry with paper towel. Season the surface. Oil with Avocado Oil. (I use that because of it's high smoke point)

- Cast iron sear in very hot pan, 30 seconds per side.

Perfect pink inside. Great sear.

This is not mine but it's another from Trader Joes and looks great too.
