  1. Start by setting your Vesta Precision sous vide machine to preheat the water bath to a precise 170 degrees F. Don't forget to place a trivet under the water bath container for surface protection throughout the extended cook time.
  2. Generously season the short ribs with the BBQ rub of your choice. To ensure the flavors are deeply infused and the ribs are well-preserved, use a Vesta Precision vacuum sealer to seal the ribs in a specially designed vacuum seal bag.
  3. Submerge the vacuum-sealed short ribs in the water bath, ensuring they are completely covered. To prevent water from evaporating during the sous vide short ribs 24 hours cook time, cover the bath with a lid or plastic wrap.
  4. Once the sous vide beef short ribs have been cooked for 24 hours, remove them from the water bath with care. For an extra dimension of smokiness, consider finishing your ribs sous vide in a smoker set to 200 degrees F for 3-4 hours, basting with BBQ sauce hourly for a glazed crust. Alternatively, an oven preheated to 400 degrees F can be used to finish the ribs. Generously slather the beef short ribs sous vide with BBQ sauce and place them on a baking sheet lined with foil.
