This is a very simple and easy way to make tasty steak or chicken using sous vide. In this post I am sharing with you sous vide steak and chicken made with Moore’s marinades and sauces that I received as a compliment.  I got to use the Original Marinade for the steak and the Zesty Garden Herb Marinade for the chicken.  They both turned out very tasty...and really easy, especially when you do not have time to gather all the spices for the marinade or sauces, using the pre made bottles of marinades just come very handy and practical. I find that most of the sauces are too salty for my taste, therefore I used about ½ to ⅔ from [...]

Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s gnocchi? Well, if you like gnocchi you should give it a try…I must confess it was better than I expected. As a matter of fact, this is my second time cooking it and this time I dressed it with peas, roasted sugar tomatoes and sous vide chicken. This is particular great especially if you are pressed for time (like now getting ready for the holidays…), in a short time you are ready for an almost “gourmet” dinner, considering that you have in your refrigerator roasted sugar tomatoes and in the freezer green peas, sous vide chicken and a bag of Trader Joe’s gnocchi. Don’t panic if you do not have the ingredients listed…you can [...]

Lemon Thyme Chicken, Sous-Vide

2018-02-09T13:15:03+00:00 Poultry, Sous Vide|

Yes, I am still playing with the sous vide method…so far this method has not disappointed me… This week, I am sharing with you a very simple recipe for a juicy, flavorful chicken breast. The good thing about this method is that you never overcook, even if you leave the chicken breasts in the water-bath longer than the set time. As your chicken is cooking (sous-vide) you have all the time to do whatever you need to do and not to worry that the chicken breasts will be over cooked, therefore, dry and rubbery. The sous vide cylinder, that I use is from Anova and you can find it HERE. Ingredients: 2 chicken breasts 1½ tablespoons olive oil 6-7 sprigs of [...]

Butter Lemon Swai, Sous Vide

2018-02-09T12:48:02+00:00 Fish and Seafood, Sous Vide|

Have you ever heard of “SWAI fish”? Swai fish is a catfish from Vietnam, which has a delicate texture and much milder taste than catfish which sometimes can have a “muddy” flavor. Swai are moist, soft, flaky, and delicate and its flesh turns from lightly beige to whitish color once cooked. I have baked, steamed and now sous vide. You mainly can cook it anyway you like, because of its delicate texture grilling might be a bit challenging, as the fish might fall apart easily. Apparently there was a “catfish wars” between US catfish farmers and Vietnamese farmers, many accusations were made about the swai fish being raised in polluted waters therefore being poisonous. With all this said, I personally [...]

Sous Vide Steak

2018-02-07T03:08:59+00:00 Meat, Method, Sous Vide|

Well, after considering carefully all the aspects of sous vide cooking I finally decided to try. What I mean by considering is the fact that sous vide method uses cooking in a water bath under vacuum in an accurate regulated temperature, and in order to cook under vacuum the food has to be in contact with plastic, which I am very skeptical about it…after reading a lot about the sous vide method I could not resist a perfect cooked piece of steak. Moreover, since the temperature used in sous vide is much lower than the normally used, I assume (please do not quote me on this) that chemical would not be released from the plastic from heat since the temperature [...]
