Sous vide cooking is especially good for proteins, which can be cooked to their ideal temperature of doneness without fear of overcooking. For example, if beef is perfectly medium-rare at 132F, and it is prepared at 132F, it can never reach temperatures of 140F or over and become overcooked. While I've tried cooking soft-boiled eggs in the SVS, I'm still a little intimidated about the idea of cooking meat in it. So...in my next attempt at using the thing, I cooked...vegetables.
The SousVide Supreme Web site offered an interesting-sounding salad of fennel and apples, so I gave that a whirl.
|Using the vacuum sealer on the apples. Not a good idea, since the
sealer sucked the marinade out of the bag and all over the place.
Also next time...I need to get brave enough to cook meat. Maybe salmon.
