Getting Started with Sous Vide Cooking and the Tools You Need

Getting Started with Sous Vide Cooking and the Tools You Need

Even though sous vide cooking is widely popular, it is new to some folks who are immersed in the traditional way of cooking. Sous vide cooking is simple, convenient, and a lot more fun than traditional cooking methods. However, in order to get started, there are several factors that you need to consider first.

Why should I switch to sous vide cooking?

Before we start checking out the tools required in sous vide cooking, it is important to understand its benefits first. Sous vide in French literally means under vacuum. However, if someone, especially a chef, says sous vide cooking, they usually refer to the cooking method where the food is placed inside a vacuum sealed plastic bag and let it cook using the precision cooker.

Sous vide cooking is an ideal option for health conscious people because you are no longer required to use any additives or oil. Aside from that, it makes the food tastier and preserves its natural color and texture. You can have a world-class beef steak in the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t strip away the juices of the food, making it more appealing when served.

What are the tools needed for sous vide cooking?

Here are the following tools you need to invest in order to get started with sous vide cooking. Contrary to common misconception, you don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket just to get started with sous vide cooking.

1. Immersion calculator

It refers to the device that you’re going to insert into the pot of water. It will heat up the water it has drawn and spit it out, circulating and heating the water in the process. An immersion calculator has a single-degree precision and accuracy. It costs around $200. If you are to buy one, make sure to choose the device with simpler buttons, easy connectivity features, and safe to use.

2. Cambro containers

This tool is optional because you could pretty much use any pot that you wanted in order to achieve sous vide cooking. However, it is also recommended that you use a Cambro container. Remember that plastic is a better insulator than metal. Aside from that, a big plastic comes in handy if you’re going to prepare for a lot of people. For instance, if you have a 4.75 gallon Cambro container, you’ll be able to serve up to 10 beef steaks in one cooking.

3. Cast iron skillet

If you are done cooking the sous vide meat, you might want to add some texture and flavor to it. You can do it better using a cast iron skillet. Do not worry because it’s pretty affordable. Almost any chef can have it in their own kitchen.

4. Zipper-lock freezer bags

In order to get started, you need a zipper-lock freezer bag to place your food inside. Opt for freezer bags to ensure that the water wouldn’t seep in and mix with your meat, spices, and vegetables.

5. Binder clip

Since you’re going to attach the plastic bag into the pot, you might want to invest in a binder clip. It’s also affordable and it can help you prevent too much of evaporation.

Basically, this is what makes up a sous vide machine. If you want to get started, you only need to invest in the aforementioned tools. Since you can cook any kind of meat, vegetables, and even fruits in sous vide machine, you can experiment all you want in cooking. As much as you can, narrow down your options to reputable manufacturers of the best sous vide machine to ensure a longer lifespan of your machine.

First Foods for Sous Vide Machines and Best Wines to Go With Them

Have you just started with sous vide machines? If so then it’s important to choose certain foods since they’re easier to prepare using the slow-cooking device. These small appliances tend to work by using water baths and air-tight pouches. There are various types of food you can prepare but here are some of the best ones for beginners:

1. Pork Chops
How about using your sous vide unit for cooking super-juicy pork chops? Ironically pigs have been raised for several years to produce leaner white meat that’s actually close to chicken’s fat content. However, the problem is that it’s made today’s pork quite try compared to what was available in the past.

The good news is you can use the best sous vide machine to enjoy juicy pork chops. This will help to seal in all the flavor and juices in the pouches. If you’re cooking for two people you should consider one big double-cut pork chop. Then split the cooked food at the dining room table. That will help to provide results that are even juicier.

2. Carrots
This root crop is one of the best options in terms of vitamins and minerals. It’s high in several nutrients including Vitamin A. This is also an excellent option if you’re just starting with sous vide machines. The machine helps to seal in the flavor of the orange food.

Carrots are already a great food in terms of nutrients, texture, and flavor. However, when you put them in a vacuum bag and cook them at the right temperature the veggie cooks in the food’s own juices. You can then pour them into a skillet and reduce to glaze. This results in losing zilch flavor when cooking the vegetable.

You might be uncertain about whether or not to cook carrots. If so then you might not want to use the sous vide device to prepare the veggie. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of carrots then you should definitely consider trying out this recipe.

3. Pulled Pork
This is another good option for your sous vide device. The slow-cooking process is the key benefit of the process. You’ll need to cook the food in a water bath for up to a full day in order to make the meat tender. The cut is actually one of the best options if you’re a BBQ fan.
