Kinda funny I just watched that video today. I really need to order a searzall. So far steaks, chuck roast, pork butt, chicken breasts, Italian sausage, and chicken tacos. Very solid cooking choice for that on-the-go lifestyle. Lots of food, no time spent actually cooking.

I think as usual my go to is chicken, cheap and easy.

Nice to see you're enjoying it, Bill.

I did a 8-9lb Rib roast yesterday. 10 hours @ 132. Finished in the broiler for 5 min a side.
Came out fantastic.

I haven't been experimenting much with the Anova of late. Lot's of the same old, same old going in, and the same old, same old perfect results coming out.
I really wan't to do burgers, and give sausage a try. Every time I make either, I forget I want to sous vide them, throw them on the grill, then kick myself for forgetting.

Was worth it. I need to get a bigger water bath and try some longer cooks. Really wanting to do a ham and beef tenderloin.

The sausage and burgers are quite fantastic. Did another 5 pounds of chicken yesterday

I would say both Bill, if you can afford them. No sense heating all the water in the larger tub if you're doing smaller cooks.

Default Re: Sous vide

I would go with the Lipavi as well. The larger container will give you the ability to do larger cuts and more capacity, which is never a bad in my eyes

I have the 4.75 qt Cambro here.
I modified the lid myself. Modifying the lid was truly one of the hardest things I've ever had to accomplish in life.
Had there been a brand available with a pre-cut lid at the time, I would've ordered it.
I do have a Lipavi sous vide rack which I love.

Sous vide steak is phenomenal. I finally bought a vacuum sealer, ziplock bags were way too much of a PITA.

Oh wow this thread is fantastic! My first post and this is right up my alley.

So a few suggestions for everyone!

Typically you put olive oil in a bag with your meat to help the meat keep it's shape. It helps prevent those wrinkles from the bags. Also if you put something like rosemary in it it should help that flavor infuse with the meat.

My second suggestion for you to is to pre-sear your raw meat before tossing it into your vacuum bag. You may think this bizarre but take a moment to think it through with me here. When you sear first you are causing the outside of the meat to go through the maillard reaction, which is the browning and the tastyness that you get when you finish it on a hot pan. When you sear first, you are letting the meat marinate in the maillard flavor for the entire duration of the cook, and since it is in a vacuum that flavor is also drawn deeper into the meat as well. Try it out next time!

Third suggestion is, if you are like me you are cooking this way a lot! and that means that you'll be going through a ton of vacuum sealer bags. I found a discount buyer's club for bags and rolls, you may want to sign up and stock up like I do when I get sale notifications. The site is here. I found out about it when I was reading about different vacuum sealers when trying to figure out which one to buy.

Jo, all your pictures made me flood my house with drool. Damn you! All that food looks so good.

Largely thanks to this thread, I got myself an Anova yesterday and tried it out for the first time last night. I did four pretty thick ribeyes at 129 for a little under an hour (two with some rosemary and garlic sealed up in there) and then seared them on cast iron with a little oil and garlic butter. Turned out great. Nice crust and medium-rare throughout. I'm really looking forward to playing around with this thing. Planning on doing some turkey breast in there for Thanksgiving.

I did NY Strip steaks yesterday with the Anova. I rarely order a strip steak when we go out because they are a bit on the tough side, but 5 hours in the sous vide @ 130 and they were almost cut-with-a-fork tender (and a beautiful medium rare)

Yes, but that is the Bluetooth model and not the Wifi model. There is a difference in wattage and range. Just a consideration to make sure its the right one for your needs.

Same here. Look up the recipe on Serious Eats. That's what I did. Never went over 145F. Best turkey breast I've had.
