Cooking Sous-Vide – It’s Not As Fancy As You Think!

Fancy cooking used to be reserved for five-star restaurants and the elite. Thanks to cooking shows, however, regular folks have been upping their kitchen game. In addition to turning grilled cheese sandwiches into culinary works of art, many have tried a cooking method called sous-vide.

Please don’t let the name intimidate you. Sous-vide is French for ‘under vacuum,’ as in sealing food in a pouch and then cooking it in liquid. This helps maintain an even temperature while cooking for a long period of time.

As the following video shows though, you can sous-vide without the vacuum part.

All you really need is a pot, some cooking liquid, and a thermometer. For those who want to go all out, there are actual sous-vide machines you can buy that have a built in thermometer.

This sous-vide demonstration features meat cooking in clarified butter before being seared on both sides. It’s hard to imagine anyone turning down buttery beef with a crispy exterior.

To all of you vegetarians, sous-vide can also be done with eggs and vegetables. If you can cook it, you can sous-vide it.
