question?
did you use any seasoning in the sous vide?
was the tenderness like a lot more tender than the grilled steak? having a difficult time asking the question I want to ask, given your out come which do you prefer?
Could you would you do any grilling of the sous vide after the sous vide process?
I am most curious about these... how long was the steak in the sous vide?

Looks like I am just gonna have to go get one to play with.. :scratch:

I seasoned all the steaks with pink Himalayan salt. The sous vide steaks were salted and put into the zip lock bag. I used a bendy straw to suck all the air I could out of the zip lick bag. The sous vide steaks were WAY WAY more tender than the grilled steaks. I cooked the sous vide steaks for a little over 2 hours at 135 degrees. I did a reverse sear on the grilled steaks to an IT of 120 degrees. Then I seared both kinds of steaks over a super hot bed of B&B lump. This was a comparison of sous vide and grilling. To be honest with you I wish I would have done all of them sous vide. I hope I answered all your questions.

Did you cool the SV steaks down in ice water before grilling? I hear that allows more time on the grill without going over, unless you are aiming for well done.
Two hours at 135 sounds like a too long time and/or too high a temp if you want to get the same grilled taste as non SV.

I did not give them an ice bath and they were no where near well done when they come out of the Jacuzzi. You could see uncooked red meat just under the surface I'd the steak.
