Good brisket is often called the Holy Grail of barbecue. This is an apt description, given how rarely you find good smoked beef brisket in the wild. Sous vide cooking changes all that by allowing even a novice to produce brisket that's as moist and tender as the very best stuff you'll find in Austin or Lockhart, with all the savory brisket rub and smoky flavor you could want.
I was skeptical of the idea of sous vide bacon. I generally prefer my bacon cooked completely crisp, rather than trying to get bacon that's crisp and moist at the same time. But bacon cooked sous vide overnight is the first I've ever tasted that delivers on that moist-and-crisp promise. It's crispy on the exterior as you bite into it, but it quite literally melts in your mouth, like the finest confit pork belly, as you chew. Here's how to make it.
Whole happy chicken sous vide. 144F 4 hours. The chicken will be cooking in a brine thats 1.5% salt and 1% brown sugar.Added a few herbs and orange rounds. I will be making flash fried chicken this weekend.One of the cool things about using a low salinity solution is that you can use the bag juices and make stock thats just salty enough. Equilibrium brining takes longer but its great. Once the chicken is cooked it will be ready only after about 24 hours. Thats when the equilibrium is reached...
Garlic confit. Youve probably heard about it. The first time I did it was many years ago when I was reading the french laundry cookbook. Its been a long time since and sous vide garlic confit its probably the gentlest and the easiest way to achieve it although if you know how to tame your stove's flame go for it. 5-6 hours at 85C in the water bath should do it. Add some olive oil thyme and rosemary. Spreads like butter and tastes amazing. Happy Monday! . . . . #chefstalk #chefsoninstagram #chefo
