Wanna know how to cook chuck roast sous vide? It’s so easy! 

First, chill the meat overnight with a flavorful steak seasoning of your choice. 

The following day, place the chilled steak in the vacuum seal bag. 

Then, let the beef chuck roast cook in the warm water bath for 24 hours (or up to 36 to 48 hours)

The cooking time and temp might vary, though. If you prefer medium-rare doneness, sous vide the beef roast at 135 degrees Fahrenheit

Once your sous vide pot roast is cooked, give it a quick sear on the skillet. Or grill it if you want a smoky BBQ steak. It would make the most tender sous vide steak EVER!  

I also adorned my chuck roast with a savory gravy made with butter, flour, and sherry. It adds a nice layer of flavor to the juicy and tender steak. But feel free to use any gravy of your choice. Once you’ve tried my easy recipe, you’ll see that sous vide is the best way to cook beef chuck. For a complete steak dinner, I paired sous vide roast beef with rich and creamy mashed potatoes.
