Today I will be talking about a piece of equipment that everyone should have in their kitchen. A sous vide machine. This machine has a lot of benefits that will make your cooking experience top notch!
Lets start off with what a sous vide machine is;
Sous-vide is a method of cooking in which food is placed in a plastic pouch or a glass jar and cooked in a water bath for longer than usual cooking times at an accurately regulated temperature.
The temperature is much lower than usually used for cooking, typically around 55 to 60 °C 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.
This machine can cook a wide variety of proteins and cut cooking time which will give you more time to spend with your family or guest.
You can buy a sous vide machine on Amazon, Canadian Tire or Best Buy.
