A magical way to tenderize your meat and infuse it with flavor
on April 19, 2018
I think what really intrigued me about investing in a sous vide is when we recently had dinner with the family. My sister and her husband brought over a fish still in the bag and it was definitely interesting and different upon first glance, the way it is packaged and the process. However, when we first took our first bites into the fish, the infusion of flavor and ingredients with the machine and the explosion of flavor for us really left us in shock and awe. I've tasted plenty of fish through my lifetime. But this was on a whole other level. The fish was so tender and flavorful and the only differentiating reason was because of this magical item.
The precision cooking capabilities and what makes it more innovative is that this includes wifi and or bluetooth compatibility so that you can connect it with an app on your phone or tablet. I'm really a newbie when it comes to cooking and my fiance is the one that is the specialist cook in the family and she was ecastic to perfect this machine since she has used it in the past at friends homes but have never owned one personally. The cooking chart in comparison is fairly accurate in terms of the timing and temperature for the following items that we cooked, which were salmon, chicken thigh, and filet mignon steak.
You could tell the brightness and freshness of the end result for the different meats we cooked compared to when we would cook on the stove top. I think the one factor we have trouble in controlling is balanced and even cooking throughout all parts of the meat, so some areas would be overcooked or less than medium rare (beef). By being able to connect to the app, you are able to track the progress of the cooking process, so that you can be notified if you are in a different room that the meat is ready. The device and its various functions is really user friendly whether your a beginner, intermediate or advanced chef. Choose your protein and follow the detailed instructional recipes.
The creativity in your food choices and being able to create a succulent and juicy piece of meat with all the locked in flavors is enabled by this creation. The circulation technology to be able to cook the meats evenly in water and the appeal is the ease of use. The touch sensors are accurate and activate seamlessly, with the clamp to be able to attach to practically any container.
Overall, I think our favorite meals to create are fish related because we are trying to eat red meats less and the health benefits of fish seems to attract us to maintain a better lifestyle. And after trying it out for lunch and dinner for almost a week, we really feel that it's our favorite cooking device to use in the kitchen.
