We’ll boil it down for you (wait for it…): Sous vide cooking doesn’t have to be scary! You can make succulent and juicy meats right at home with a little bit of patience and extra cooking time.
Sous vide, or “under vacuum” in French, means the food is vacuum-sealed in a plastic pouch and then placed in a water bath at a regulated temperature. The result is a fantastically tender meat that retains moisture on the inside and isn’t overcooked on the outside.
