So, what is sous vide cooking? Have you ever been to a top restaurant and wondered how they cook the steaks perfectly to you specification every time? Well they probably cooked it using the sous vide cooking method. Sous vide is French for ‘under vacuum’. The process is a lot simpler that seems; basically you vacuum seal your meat or fish with a marinade, sauce, herbs, or spices and drop it in a large pot of water. Unlike the conventional high temperatures of the stovetop, oven or grill cooking, sous vide gently cooks the most delicate fish or the toughest cuts of meat to tender perfection. This method cooks at a lower temperature for a longer period of time which results in enhanced flavours and tenderness. Because of the extremely precise temperature control, the same dish can be prepared time and time again achieving the same perfect results every time. Sous vide also makes meal planning easy as food can be prepped and sealed ahead of time and then cooked direct from the fridge or freezer by simply dropping it into the water oven and setting the temperature.
Sous vide used to be a method only used by restaurants because of the extremely expensive, vast machines it takes to cook in large quantities. Now we are living in an age of sous vide cooking at home with small, affordable sous vide machines that allow you to recreate restaurant quality meals in your own home.
