Default Cooking Tuna

The family is getting tired of seared tuna(raw in the middle).

Is there a way to cook tuna steaks that it is cooked all the way through without it drying out?

Sous vide would do it pretty well. You could then sear them for a crust.

If you like Mediterranean flavors, this is a good recipe. https://howtofeedaloon.com/mediterranean-tuna-steaks/

A lot of the tuna recipes with sauce can have the steaks cooked more than seared. I've had it with a caramelized onion sauce and it is great too.

Garlic, butter, onions and salt/pepper is hard to beat too.

I like seared and sashimi too but I can only have so much before I get bored.

Cook Tuna all the way through, not too thick though, make up a tomato and onion sauce, job done, don't quite get this seared shit.

Have you actually tried this? I did it once.....never again. Pushes a fatty oil to the outside; and it's pretty nasty. At least it was when I tried it.

I have never eaten tuna that was cooked and have zero intention of changing that.

No thanks. Tuna is meant to eat raw or lightly seared. If cooked all the way through then it becomes either tuna salad or cat food, depending on how bad it was overcooked.

Sous vide. Hold at 135 for 30 minutes, then sear on the grill.

I've got a great recipe.

Send the raw tuna to me and I'll send you equal pounds pre-cooked and canned

maybe in your house, been catching, cooking and eating Tuna for a very long time, and you can have your raw business, it might be trendy, but to me, cooked beats raw hands down.
