For Valentine’s Day, I gave K two lbs of grass-fed Waygu beef steaks. Last weekend, I was at a conference all day. I was presenting and networking and learning and in my business element from early in the morning until dinner time. When I came home, exhausted and exhilarated with possibility, my wonderful husband was preparing this steak. He generously salted and peppered it and added a big knob of truffle butter. Then he sealed and sous vide it for six hours at 130 degrees. During the last hour and a half, he sealed and sous vide some potatoes as well. Then, right before we ate (as I was taking a cat nap), he seared the steak in a hot pan and fried the potatoes in duck fat.
This steak was like eating butter — a perfect medium rare. It was simply the best steak I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. The potatoes were clean and salty and crisp. I gave my hubby the gift of steak and he gave me the gift of a perfect meal. He truly did that cow justice. And that’s why this is the steak that love made.
