This cooking method practiced by top chefs is the latest rage, and I had never heard of it till I watched the how-to video that came with my Foodsaver vacuum sealer appliance (which I LOVE! See my other blog post on the topic).
What a convenient, time-saving way to plan and prepare meals. It’s so much easier and they taste incredible.
Basically the process is this: you place your food and ingredients in airtight plastic bags and then simmer them in hot water below boiling point till done. The result is a tasty, juicy, flavor-infused dish that doesn’t doesn’t lose any of its original appearance or texture.
The drawback is that you need to keep an eye on the water temperature and make sure it stays constant.
But a plus is you can prepare a bunch of meals in advance (vacuum sealing seals out air, so they stay fresh) and have them ready when you are.
I’ll scout out some good recipes and let you know the results I’ve gotten soon.0
