New cooking methods ... sous vide
 
So I took the plunge (pun not intended) and purchased a personal sous vide machine.

I've made a wonderful roasted garlic and herb compound butter and I'm about to put a couple of thick cut KC strips in the bath, set it for 134 degrees and in a couple hours I should have perfectly medium rare steak to throw in a screaming hot skillet to sear. Then it's eatin' time.

Will post pics.

Anyone worked with sous vide before? Any tips, tasty things to try?

That's a big plunge! Sounds cool and I'd love to be able to try your steak!

I just read about it because I'd never heard of it before. I'll be interested to hear about your experience.

I've prepared tuna and salmon that way, sealing in aromatics and herbs with the fish before a flash sear on a screaching hot grill. Excellent.

No, I pretty much stick to fire.

I am really interested to see how this turns out!

How much did you spend on the unit?

I've really been wanting to experiment with one of these for a long time, and I finally gave in. Got the wife's blessing and bought it.

How much does your wife love your cooking? Does she cook?

She loves my cooking. It's something I've done for a long time, and our second date was at my house with me cooking dinner for her.

Mrs. FMB! doesn't cook. She screws up box dinners, bless her heart. She bakes like a champ, though, which I guess works out well. I ****ing hate baking.

I'm the same way I love to cook but for some reason I can't stand baking.

Not sure about you, but it's too scientific. I hate measuring. You can just throw stuff together and make an incredible meal, but if you just "throw together" a cake it's gonna suck ass.
