Sous-Vide 101: Prime Steak Primer | Serious Eats

Quote:
f you've gone out to a fancy restaurant in the last five years or so, you've most likely eaten a protein that was cooked sous-vide in a water bath, whether you knew it or not. The process of vacuum-packing meat and cooking it in a precise temperature-controlled water bath has revolutionized the way fine-dining restaurants are run.

The introduction of the Sous-Vide Supreme, the first temperature-controlled water bath designed for home cooks promises to do the same for home cookery. Finally, anyone with a bit of cash (or a generous friend or two) can produce perfectly cooked proteins without fail—chicken with a juiciness the Colonel's wife only dreamed of, and the kind of double-thick pork chops that would've made me break out a celebratory PBR mid-service, had I been able to produce it when I was a line cook.

Unfortunately, there aren't too many practical resources for home cooks now that they've actually got the damn machines. Hopefully, this new recipe series will shed some light on sous-vide cookery basics.

exactly.





you vacuum seal the steak in a bag... then place it into a water bath of what temperature you choose within .1* ... so medium rare steak- you set it for 130-135. and the steak is perfectly cooked throughout with no chance of over cooking

Sounds interesting. I only eat steak once a year on my bday at some steak house around, but if I were into eating steak like this, it seems like a good investment. I wonder if the Texas Steak house in Crystal Lake is using this technology...

Good find. Now if it could be used to make the best cheese burger in the world, I'd buy right now.

I need to look into this. I think I could redneck something together with a 500 watt fish tank heater and a temperature controller that I already have. I can control the temp within a couple degrees. I wonder if I could hold a bucket of water at 130*? I am used to holding a 250 gallon reef tank at 78* Time to experiment?

Never heard of this. Looks interesting and worth a try, at least the beer cooler method.

well the biggest part is it completely evenly cooks anything you are cooking the entire way through- unlike grilling where it's super hot and you hope the inside winds up at the temp you'd like.

don't get me wrong, this probably. will just be "another" way for me to cook a steak in addition to charcoal grilling, pellet grilling, broilin' etc..

I have seen them used on the show "Chopped". I never understood what it does to the meat. Interesting for sure.

fwiw. that isn't going to aerate the water, or heat it. you still need some sort of heating element.

i looked into diy solutions.

then i decided i'd rather just buy one that works and not ruin expensive pieces of meat potentially trying to become an engineer.
