Sous Vide Method

Cooking the perfect steak (or chicken) is a skill mastered by few, though eating the perfect steak is a passion shared by many. There’s something that feels special about knowing you’ll be enjoying a steak cooked to perfection - whether you have reservations at your favorite restaurant, dinner plans with a talented friend, or a cut in your refrigerator waiting to be prepared by your own skilled hands.

Our passion at Calvetti Meats is to deliver that special feeling to anyone, anywhere, at any time, in any numbers. With the sous vide method of preparation, we pride ourselves on doing exactly that.

Sous vide is the art - and science - of cooking beautiful cuts of meat in a vacuum package at a low temperature for a long period of time. And here at Calvetti, it’s one of our signature styles that we use daily to deliver you the dinner you deserve.

The water your meal cooks in can be regulated to two-tenths of a degree by the skilled Calvetti chefs, and all the moisture is retained in the pouch as it cooks for a succulent fine dining experience. Whether it’s your first steak with us or your three hundredth, our proprietary method allows us to prepare every steak perfectly, every time - for unparalleled consistency that arrives cooked and ready for you to simply heat, serve, and enjoy.
