Some say cooking is a scam. You spend two hours cooking a meal you eat in five minutes. If you’re one of those people then Sous Vide will blow your mind!
Sous Vide sounds like a high class hoity toity french word that’s only for fancy restaurants but it is for everybody, especially you who doesn’t like food that takes time. In this article you will learn how to cook in less time than you can imagine!
How Do You Pronounce Sous Vide?
Before you learn of this amazing cooking technique, let’s get you up to speed on how to pronounce ‘sous vide’.
Sous Vide/suː ˈviːd/ is pronounced Soo-veed.
“Sous Vide” as you might have guessed is a French word, so what does sous vide mean in English? It literally means “under vacuum”.
Now don’t go thinking sous vide is some difficult professional technique, it’s really simple, let’s define what sous vide means in cooking.
Sous Vide is a cooking method that involves sealing food in an airtight container-usually a vacuum sealed bag-and then cooking the food in temperature controlled water.
Its appeal, apart from the speed it brings to cooking is that the food comes in no contact with the metal base of the pot, the flames, smoke, or steam. The food is cooked with just intense heat and pressure.
What Is A Sous Vide Cooker?
A sous vide cooker is a precise cooking machine that keeps the cooking water to a constant temperature with the use of a heated metal coil. The water temperature is always fixed, it never increases or decreases. The advantage of this precise control is that you can never have undercooked or overcooked food, everything is always just right. Wonderful, isn’t it?
Take for instance, when you’re cooking steak on a regular stove with direct heat the internal temperature could increase up to 137°and you can’t actually see what’s going on inside. It’ll take you having to guess constantly or cutting the steak open to be able to make sure the steak is well cooked. Sous vide cookers totally remove the need for guessing or cutting so your steak is accurately cooked to your taste.
And that’s not all, Sous Vide cookers have the added function of water circulation ensuring that the warm water is evenly distributed across the pot. Sounds like a warm bath where the water just gets into all the right spots!
Why Should You Cook Sous Vide?
Have you wanted to eat healthier and be more conscientious in your cooking but cooking just takes so much time and you just go for fast food instead? Well, with sous vide you can cook and eat healthy food fast!
The amazing engineering behind sous vide cookers makes it so that your food is cooked with pure heat and pressure which is way faster than conventional stove cooking.
Don’t ever ruin dinner again with smoke from the stove, with airtight vacuum sealed sous vide cooking, your food doesn’t touch the flames, cannot get burnt and fill the house with smoke, so dinner is safe and everyone’s in a good mood.
Standing over the stove, checking your food over and over again can add more stress to the already stressful art of cooking but all that stress can go away with sous vide. The constant water temperature and perfect heat circulation let’s you take your mind off worrying about your food.
Never ever worry about your wonderfully cooked delicious meals getting bad quick again. Sous vide’s airtight vacuum sealed method of cooking ensures that your food is cooked through and lasts up to 5 days longer in the fridge than food cooked on regular stoves.
If you’ve ever taken the time to stay up for an hour or more to cook something and it turns out to be undercooked, overcooked or burnt then you have known great pain! Fortunately, sous vide grants maximum accuracy and precision to your cooking, you set what degree you want your food to cook at and it let’s your will be done!
