    My cousin bought a sous vide and loves it. He's a big time cook and says he can cook most anything in it. I think he said he spent about $800 on it. Your method sounds good. I'll take one to go please.

    The best thing about it is that you cannot fuck up hundreds of dollars of prime beef because you got distracted for a moment while manning the grill. Just have em sitting in the sous vide bath for hours and brown them quickly just before eating. Always perfect. It takes steak to a new level.

    yeah very true. I'm so terrified of overcooking steak that I tend to undercook it. I'm pretty easy though and i have a range of temps I'll eat steak at. however, for pork and chicken, I would be a huge fan of this because the range of temperatures where it's both good and healthy are much smaller.

    I ran across this thread today quite by accident. I never did get a fancy sous vide and doubt that I ever will now that I eat very little red meat any more. However, I do still cook whole tenderloins for my family or briskets for get togethers and such. To make it easier, I bought a remote thermometer from Home Depot for about $30 bucks. The thing works great! I just set it for my desired temp and it alerts me up to 300' away when the meat gets to that temp. Pretty cool little gadget. Keeps me from constantly checking and I don't over cook anything.

    Lol. I've had one of those wireless thermometers for years. Works perfectly.
