Ladies And Gentlemen, It's Time For Sous Vide Cooking! I Will Teach You What You Need To Know
First of all, what does sous vide cooking mean? Before we jump into that, let's learn how to properly say the words. It sounds like sü-ˈvēd (or sue veed). The meaning is easy! It simply means to cook food in a vacuum-sealed pouch. Why would you want to do that? It keeps all of the juice and aroma inside of the food instead of leaking out onto the pan. Sounds pretty yummy, am I right? There are different companies that offer equipment to use, but I recently received the Anova Precision Cooker Pro along with a beautiful Anova Precision Vacuum Sealer (and bags!). I'm so excited and I can't wait to get started.
It's Sous Vide Cooking Time!
I will obviously be using my Anova Precision Cooker Pro after sealing my food. Apparently, the main reason people use this device is that it's almost error-proof and the food tastes like a professional cooked it. Now that sounds pretty darn good to me! Who doesn't want to be complimented after making dinner?
So, the cooker pro will give you these amazing benefits: consistency, taste, waste reduction, and flexibility. Let's talk about consistency. This precision instrument will always use the precise temperature and time giving you consistent results. No longer is cooking a guessing game. Imagine a moist, juicy, tender steak instead of a chewy, overdone steak because your grill didn't keep the same temperature. I'm pretty sure I know which one you'd want to serve and eat! Another great benefit to this type of cooking is that you can set your temperature and time, then go and enjoy your day. No reason to stand around the kitchen to continue stirring/flipping. It saves you precious time and energy. Who doesn't love that?
Using The Vacuum Sealer
If you're looking for a perfectly sized vacuum sealer that hides away easily when not in use, look no further. The Anova Precision Vacuum Sealer combines fast air extraction along with a seal meant to hold! This amazing piece of equipment means business. It's easy to use too. Well, if you know how to push a button, you'll be an expert at using this. I've researched other vacuum sealers on the market but none are small and strong enough to compare to Anova's. Not only will you be using the sealed food to cook with, but when you're done you can use it to keep the wonderfully tasting food safe from bacteria. You can't possibly be looking for anything more!
How easy is it to use together? Well, let me give you the 3 steps. You simply clip the cooker to a pot or container of your choice. Fill with water. Next, you season your food and seal it into the bag. Drop the bag into the water and clip it to the side of the pan. Choose from the many recipes and set your temperature/time. Now, sit back and relax while the cooker does all of the work for you! Enjoy!
