Sous Vide Abanico with Cowboy Butter Sauce
Sous Vide Abanico with Cowboy Butter Sauce

This recipe uses two unique techniques that are ideal for cooking Ibérico Abanico. The sous vide is a practically foolproof method for getting a perfectly pink middle, and a final sear in rendered pork fat amps up that nutty Ibérico flavor and creates a crispy golden crust. Serve it all with a spicy herb butter sauce and a big salad loaded with seasonal veggies. 

Serves: 2

Sous Vide Abanico with Cowboy Butter Sauce Recipe  

Sous Vide Abanico Ingredients

  • 1 18-25 oz. Campo Grande Abanico
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice from ½ lemon 
  • 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh parsley, minced 
  • 1 Tablespoon chives
  • 1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • Salt 
  • Black pepper 

Sous Vide Abanico Preparation

  1. Preheat the sous vide to 140ºF. 
  2. Trim and remove any excess fat from the Abanico and reserve the remaining fat. 
  3. Season the Abanico with salt and pepper and place it in the vacuum-sealed sous vide bag, along with the rosemary. Cook for 2 hours at 140ºF. 
  4. To make the cowboy sauce, heat butter in a small saucepan and add the remaining ingredients. Let cook for a few minutes on medium-low heat to mix and meld the flavors. 
  5. Once the meat has cooked, remove it from the plastic and set aside. 
  6. Heat a cast iron pan and place the remaining raw fat in the pan, letting it render. Place the Abanico in the pan and sear until you get a nice exterior crust, about 1 minute on each side. 
  7. Remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes. Slice the Abanico and spoon the cowboy butter over the top. ¡Buen provecho!
