“Soubise” is one of those French culinary terms that bears little or no resemblance to its original incarnation.  Modern versions indicate the presence of onions, and cream or “creaminess.”  Even the desired color is up for grabs.  As such, the presence of the sous vide onion in this dish brings a lot of sweetness and aroma. Our version of Sous Vide Corn Soubise is easy to prepare and adds a pleasant counterpoint to dishes like Sous Vide Pork Ribs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ear corn, processed sous vide @183Fx4 hours.

  • 4 oz. onion, processed whole @183×2 hours
  • S+P to taste
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 teaspoon flour
