What is Sous Vide Cooking?

Sous vide is a cooking technique where food is vacuum-sealed in a bag and then cooked in a very precise temperature using an immersion circulator in a water bath. It results in perfectly cooked food every single time.

The technique has been used for years in high-end restaurants but is also really accessible to home cooks thanks to a number of affordable and easy-to-use sous vide precision cooking equipment.

Sous vide cooking is really simple:

1. Attach your sous vide precision cooker to a pot of water and set the time and exact temperature according to your desired level of doneness.

2. Put your food in a sealable bag and clip it to the side of the sous vide bath with the immersion cooker.

3. Finish by searing, grilling, or broiling the food – we want to put the maillard reaction to work and finish the chicken off for the best flavor possible. For this recipe we give the chicken a quick sear.

Kitchen Tools Every Home Cook Needs

What Equipment Do I Need to Cook Sous Vide?

Getting started with sous vide cooking is easy and affordable thanks to the recent availability of sous vide devices built for the home cook. These are the products I use, love and recommend:

  • A sous vide precision cooking device – Obviously a sous vide device is the most important part of this technique as it provides the precise temperature control and heat. We love and use our Anova precision cooker.
  • Packaging for your food, like resealable bags or canning jars. If you use a sous vide bag or ziploc bags, most do not require a vacuum sealer. Vacuum seal bags will require a vacuum sealer.
  • A container to hold the sous vide water bath and sous vide cooker, like a large pot or storage container.
  • You will probably also want a cast iron skillet for finishing the chops.

Heat two tablespoons olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat and add the chops. Pan sear the chops on each side until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.

Remove the cooked chops from heat and rest for 5 minutes before serving with the roasted apples, fennel, and red onion, Enjoy!
