Sous Vide skirt steak is made by cooking the steak in a temperature-controlled bag placed in a water bath for a long time. The end result is a juicy, tender, and perfectly cooked steak.
The Sous Vide technique includes making food at low-temperature for a long time. In this method, we use a plastic pouch in which food is placed for at least 7 hours. The temperature which is commonly used in this technique is 130°F to 140°F. The main purpose of cooking food in this process is to make the food retain its moisture.
To make Sous Vide skirt steak, add the steak, garlic, and green onions in a bag. Also, add Italian seasoning, ginger, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, soy sauce, and lime juice to it and marinate it for 30 minutes. Then, transfer the steak to a zip-lock bag and cook it in a water bath for 3 hours. After that, sear the steak on the grill from both sides for 2 minutes each.
