It's very juicy. Very, very juicy. Gonna try chicken soon. I've also read that salmon is unique in sous vide, in that the final texture is very similar to sushi.

Just me though
It actually only takes about 1.5 hours for these steaks (cut 1.5 inch thick), but because you're cooking at exactly the temperature you at which you want to serve, you can actually hold the steaks in the sous vide for a long time. According to research, that's not indefinitely, but enzymes in the steak don't start breaking down the protein for 8-10 hours. So I just left these in the bath until Mrs. FMB! got home.

The taste and flavor is different than you'd get from "throwing it on the grill for 8 minutes."

And you can do a lot more in sous vide than steak, that's just what I wanted to do first.
