Sous Vide: Post Process Seasonings and Rubs

There are a number of Facebook groups on sous vide now. Many of them are pretty good places to TALK about sous vide. This one is a good place to LEARN about sous vide. The Time of the Seasons Members of the sous vide Facebook Group have heard me explain that while putting seasonings in the bag may be safe in most cases, it is for the most part ineffective.

When the top is the same as the inside This mode of preparation specifies the use of beef “top round,” aka “inside round.” Frequently and deceptively marketed as “London Broil” in the butcher’s case (there is no such cut of meat), it comes from a heavily used muscle of the hind leg and is typically quite tough.

Sous Vide Principles: Sous-B-Q Chicken Breasts “Noridashitaki”

Pick a cool and breezy chicken breast and drive to Buffalo It’s not an experiment. It’s an effort. Sous vide creates a lot of recipe interchangeability. As many sous vide recipes as exist for boneless chicken breasts (skin on or off), they can really all start the same way: Preheat your sous vide bath to at least 135 F/58 C, but not greater than 140 F/60 C. Higher temperatures are safe but cause increased moisture loss. Vacuum seal your chicken breasts individually in heat rated plastic bags. Stage the pouches into the bath using racks to prevent them from coming...
