Season the beef with Himalayan salt and black pepper.

Place beef into the bag, along with sprig of thyme and black truffle olive oil. Vacuum seal beef and place in circulating water bath and cook until target core temperature is reached.

Remove cooked beef from bath and carefully open pouch. Gently dry on paper towel to absorb excess moisture and sear evenly in hot pan or grill. Rest 60 seconds and slice. Sous vide beef does not require but a few moments to rest.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, pure the red pepper gently using black truffle oil and season with Himalayan salt. Saut the shimanji in black truffle oil and prepare the potato pure. Also cut the carrot, baby turnip and the asparagus in small pieces, blanch them and keep them warm.

To decorate the plate, peel and slice the salsify. Roll it like a spiral round of a metal tube and bake it in 180C for 8 minutes.

Serve the wagyu beef in a plate and garnish with potato pure, red pepper pure and the rest of the vegetables. On top of the beef you place the salsify spiral and the micro cress leaves. Drizzle with natural beef jus.
