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?

Plus fresh baked goods are delicious. So I bake and cook.
I can do it well, I just hate it. There are times I'll go all out and make everything.

I have done some sous vide with mixed results.
I may be a purest but to me the texture is different.
I am still playing with it.

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.
You just describe my house. Although I taught my wife to bake.

Sounds like a lot of effort to me. Season...fire grill...maybe 2 or 3 minutes on each side. Good.

You still get the crust and the tastiness from the maillard reaction, but instead of having a ring of over-done meat and a perfect center that occurs otherwise, you have a perfectly cooked steak.

We'll see soon.
This.

By my random measures of the water over the past hour, the sous vide has been within .8 degrees (according to my Thermapen) every time.
And this.

Additionally, since the proteins don't seize up with high heat, supposedly there's less moisture lost (juicier) and all meat is more tender. As angelo described, there are supposedly also texture differences, but I can't vouch for that yet. And being able to hold it at perfect temp, theoretically means you can keep it at that temp for hours without risking dry, overcooked food.

It's not intended to be an alternative to grilling, at least not for me. I'll never give that up. But I do like the idea of expanding my skills and adding something to my meal repertoire.

It's for people who don't know when to take the steak off.
