What is sous vide?

Looks crazy, right? Sous vide (pronounced “soo veed”) is French for “under vacuum,” and it refers to the process of cooking vacuum-sealed foods in a controlled water bath. This technique of precision cooking means that you can prepare perfectly cooked food for any meal. It’s incredibly easy, and there’s practically no cleanup. When your food is ready, just take it out, give it a finish, and it’s ready to serve.
Plug it in, set your temp, set a timer, go do stuff, sear and serve.
And the sous vide method is perfect for Asian flank steak with beefsteak tomatoes—you don’t have to worry about overcooking it AT ALL! Combine it with fresh seasonal tomatoes and you have a winner.
