Sous vide cooking with the anova
      #1724770 - 03/01/17 10:10 AM (72.89.45.157)

Just received my anova cooker for sous vide cooking. Any tips, recipes would be greatly appreciated. Going to try a steak tonight.

What is an anova cooker? And sous vide cooking? I cook a lot but have never heard of this.

Sous vide is cooking food in a vacuumed sealed bag in a water bath. I think it originated in France. The great thing about it is the meat comes out so tender all the way through. It's also nice that you can leave it in the water bath till you are ready. I am new to this kind of cooking so please look it up. Last night I tried my first steak. I filled a pot with water, set up the anova and set it to 130 degrees, (for medium rare), I seasoned the meat, put it in a zip lock bag, (they say you can use that, just get most of the air out). When the water reached 130 degrees, I placed the bag in the water and left it for 1 hour. It was done. I left it in the water bath till I was ready for dinner. ( another 20 minutes). I then took it out, dried it, and seared it for less than a minute per side . It was excellent. Very tender. I want to try a nice bone in rib eye next.

I never knew how to spell it, but I see people using that method on the Food Network on Chopped, etc., occasionally. When I see them using it, it's not usually on a steak though. Usually it's something that they need to really tenderize, or to impart some flavor into it. For a steak, it seems like to me that it's a bit too much trouble. Glad your experience turned out well though.

Carol, it really wasn't much trouble. It was nice to be able to leave the cooked meat in the water bath till we were ready to sit down. (I never know exactly what time my husband is getting home.) I just seared it on both sides, no longer than a minute, that was it. I have to say the steak was so tender. Really was delicious. Easy cleanup too. I'm anxious to try chicken. I may just throw the chicken on the grill to crisp it up.

Ellie--I understand where you're coming from on the 'not knowing what time your husband will get home'. When we lived in Virginia, Eric would get home anywhere from 6:45 PM until 8:30 PM, depending on traffic!!! I miss those days not at all!!

Hi Ellie; I just saw this. I got mine around the same time as you got yours, and am having fun experimenting. There are a couple of Facebook pages where I'm learning a lot. If you're interested in those, PM me and I'll give you the links. Also, even though I have an Anova, I find the Joule site and their app to be very helpful.

I just finished prepping my St. Patrick's Day dinner. I have my corned beef, potatoes, carrots, and cabbage, all bagged up separately and ready to go into the bath.
