Sous Vide Pork Belly

The sous vide method yields the most delicious pork belly. I love this recipe and its versatility and prefer it to traditional cooking methods which often use high temperatures vs the low-temperature long-time slow cook. If this is your first recipe using sous vide, you picked the right place to start!

Sweet Potato Home Fries

This is a play on your favorite brunch item, home fries. For this, I’m going to use Sweet Potatoes with a little red onion and mole powder for a delicious side dish. I like to use the sweet potato for this rather than regular potatoes as they complement the bolder flavors we will use with the mole powder. This is my favorite way to make sweet potatoes and it is the perfect side dish for a healthy breakfast.

Best Sous Vide Cooker

Want to know what the Best Sous Vide Cooker is? Well lets start by learning more about what Sous Vide is.
Sous Vide is a cooking method that means “under pressure” It is a technique used to give you absolute control over both time and temperature when cooking. For professional chefs, those two elements are crucial. As for home cooks, it is time to cash in on the knowledge the pros have been holding onto. By having complete control of time and temperature you can dictate not only the final product but WHEN it’s ready. To accomplish this control you need a circulator, also called a Sous Vide Cooker.
