Sous vide steak has to be tried to be believed. Sous vide is the French term for “under vacuum”, a method of cooking by sealing food in a plastic bag before immersing it in warm water. This means far longer cooking times because sous vide cooks at a temperature that is much lower than normal, usually around 50°C (131 °F) to 60 °C (140°F) for meat.
It ensures even cooking without overcooking while retaining all the juices and flavor. This transform cheaper cuts into the tenderest steaks. The best cuts are taken out of this world.
Sous vide brings health benefits too. Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are better retained with sous vide than with traditional cooking methods.

Fortunately, the nun who led the kitchen regiment had not taken a vow of silence and eventually told me her secret.
