Michael sent me that Guest Post awhile ago about Sous Vide cooking….and would you believe that I had one in my garage that I never opened. Truth be told, new kitchen appliances intimidate me. I mean, when oven, Blackstone and smoker work fine…why try to learn something new?! Well, sometimes amazing things…aka food…come from learning new things. Like sous vide cooking. And this Sous Vide Pepper Steak.

You will need the wok to fry up the rice and saute the veggies.

What Is Sous Vide?

Sous Vide is a method of cooking that involves vacuum-sealing the food and immersing it in warm water.

How to make Sous Vide Pepper Steak

Why use sous vide style cooking?

It allows you to cook food (steak, chicken, fish…you may it!) at a consistent temperature, which means your food is perfectly tender and cooked thoroughly.

Is sous vide different from boiling?

YES! Boiling often removes flavor and nutrients from food. When you use the sous vide style cooking method the food is cooked in an airtight environment (typically a vacuum-sealed bag or ziplock bag), you need less seasonings to get the flavor you desire and food retains a higher vitamin and mineral content.

So, why do you need the wok in this sous vide pepper steak? Well, you will saute the vegetables (peppers!) and you want to fry the rice a little.

  • Fill Sous Vide Tub with water per instructions.
  • Immerse steaks in the tub. I highly recommend buying the tub that comes with a rack. If you don’t have the rack, just pin the top of the bag between the tub and the cover.
  • Place Sous Vide Machine in tub, plug in, and turn on.

  • Download the Anova App to your phone. The App has a lot of recipes to try and you can just select the one you like and click to start the Anova. For this recipe, I set the temp and time manually by just clicking “Set Temp” and type in 130. I set the “Edit Timer” to 6 hours. Click “Start Anova”. Your phone does not need to stay near the machine and you can actually leave the house and run errands and it will still cook once it’s set.
