Sous vide is the process of cooking by vacuum sealing it and submerging it in warm water. The water is held at a precise temperature, so the food cooks exactly as you desire. This means sous vide steak, sous vide chicken or sous vide veggies are perfectly cooked every time!
But even though “sous vide” literally means “under vacuum” you can still cook sous vide even if you don’t own a vacuum sealer. Learn how to use the water displacement method and you use plastic bags for sous vide cooking.
What are the advantages of sous vide cooking?

How is sous vide different from boiling?
