Step 1: Steak

Trim any fatty outer parts from the steak as well as the largest nerves. Set the trimmings aside.

Season only one side with salt, and begin cooking the steak in a sauté pan, seasoned-side down. Sear the meat, paying careful attention not to overcook it. Once the first side has been seared well, season the second side, and sear. Add the butter and the beef trimmings. Cook slowly and baste often, then finish cooking on the fatty side.

Once the rib steak has been cooked rare, set on a rack placed on a plate. Set the steak aside in a warm spot, covered with a piece of aluminum foil.

Step 2: Top Blade Steak

Trim the top blade steak and cut it in 4 slices. Brown it in a very hot pot on all sides. Lightly season with fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.

Place it in a sous-vide bag with 1/2 cup (10 cl) of beef jus and the truffle juice. Seal and cook for 72 hours in 133°F (56°C) water. Cool on ice, then remove the steak from the bag and drain, making sure to reserve the braising juices.

Finely mince the shallots and sweat slowly. Top with the steak pieces, and add the braising juices and remaining beef jus. Add the chopped truffle, and glaze all of the ingredients.
