  • 2.5 lbs Whole Venison Rack frenched
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter 45 ml
  • 2 Rosemary Sprigs
  • 2 Thyme Sprigs
  • 1 tbsp Neutral Oil 15 ml

Chipotle Coffee Rub:

  • 2 tbsp Ground Coffee 30 ml
  • 1.25 tbsp Brown Sugar 18.75 ml
  • 1 tbsp Chipotle Powder 15 ml
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder 10 ml
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper 10 ml
  • Kosher Salt to taste

Cowboy Butter:

  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter 240 ml
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Parsley 30 ml
  • 2 tbsp Minced Garlic 30 ml
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard 15 ml
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Flakes 5 ml
  • Kosher Salt to taste


  • Smashed Potatoes
  • Bacon Wrapped Asparagus


  • Slather the venison rack with oil, ensuring it is evenly coated.
  • Generously season the rack with the Chipotle Coffee Rub, making sure to cover the entire rack.
  • Add the rack to an ANOVA sealable back with butter, thyme and rosemary. Seal and decompress the bag.
  • Set the ANOVA Precision Cooker Pro to 128.5°F (57°C).
  • Place the bag with the seasoned venison rack into the cooker. Cook the rack for 2 to 3 hours. Avoid exceeding 4 hours for ideal results.
  • Once the sous vide process is complete, remove the venison rack from the cooker and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • While the steak is cooking, mix together all the ingredients for the Cowboy Butter in a bowl.
  • Preheat a grill or open flame to high heat (around 400F)
  • Sear the venison rack over the high heat for 1.5 to 2 minutes, ensuring all sides are crusted. Remove the rack from the heat once it is seared to perfection.
  • Spoon the Cowboy Butter over the Coffee Crusted Venison Rack, allowing it to melt and enhance the flavors. Alternatively, serve the Cowboy Butter on the side for dipping if preferred.
  • Slice, serve with some roasted potatoes + bacon wrapped asparagus and enjoy!
