I almost jumped on this product a while back because I do believe it will result in perfectly cooked meat but the fact that you can’t really cook to more than one level one doneness means you and your company have to all like their meats prepared the same. If you prefer medium rare but your company does not, one of you is gonna be sol without jumping through hoops…..not to mention that you still have to sear them too.
Of course you can cook a steak bleu, saignant, à point or bien cuit. What do you think, chefs require their clientele only to come in when everyone is in unison on how their meat is cooked?
Ummm no, research the product. If you want two steaks to different doneness AT THE SAME TIME you most certainly can not, without cooking one, freezing it, cooking the other and then reheating the first. Chefs have MULTIPLE machines moron creating multiple waterbaths.
No name calling here. Keep it civil or just don’t comment.
My explanation of the process comes straight from Anova support, FWIW
Re: Cooking two steaks at different temps / serving at the same time (for example one medium well and one medium rare). Cook the medium well one at 155 for aprox an hour. After that one is done LEAVE IT IN THE WATER and lower the temp to 130 for the medium rare and cook the second steak for about an hour. When it’s done take them both out, sear then serve. Takes longer (but if you’re using sous-vide you’re most likely not in a huge rush anyway) but it is most definitely possible.
Thanks for this Jack. Great tip.
What I don’t get is why she calls this sous vide cooking without vacuuming the bag. This is how sous vide cooking is done.This is what sous vide means. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuisine_sous_vide
Agreed. I would consider this a “quick start” into sous-vide. Luckily I just picked up a FoodSaver so it all timed out well.
