First off I never even heard of Sous Vide Cooking and I’m not sure I could do it justice in my description of it. It does how ever look interesting. To fully understand this process I visited sousvidewizard.com They helped me understand a little better.The sous-vide method is used in many high-end gourmet restaurants by chefs using specialized Sous Vide Machines.
Sous-vide (/suːˈviːd/; French for “under vacuum”) is a method of cooking in which food is placed in a plastic pouch or a glass jar and cooked in a water bath or steam environment for longer than normal cooking times (usually 1 to 7 hours, up to 48 or more in some cases) at an accurately regulated temperature. The temperature is much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 55 to 60 °C (131 to 140 °F) for meat, higher for vegetables. The intent is to cook the item evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked without overcooking the outside, and to retain moisture.
So it’s basically cooking with water to get an even temp. The thing is I’ve looked at a few recipes . When cooking a steak or roast like this the top chefs still highly recommend searing the steak preferably in a cast iron skillet.
