My new favorite cooking “toy” is my Anova Sous Vide machine…it’s the ultimate Really Cool Kitchen Tool. Everything I’ve made so far (steak, chicken and pork) has come out perfectly every time with restaurant quality results…it’s kinda idiot-proof! All you do is just attach the machine to any pot, add water, put whatever you want to cook in a sealed bag (any ziplock-type bag will do), drop it in the water and then press start, (you can also use the free wirelessly connected Anova Culinary app to find your recipe and cooking settings for exactly how you like it done, and hit ‘Start’ from your phone) and an hour later it’s done! I know this sounds like a gushing ad, but it’s not…I just love it that much. Shown here is my Sous Vide pork tenderloin. I just marinated it in teriyaki for a few hours, placed it in the sous vide bath and after an hour at 136°, took it out and seared it for 2 minutes in a screaming hot cast iron pan. It was tender, perfectly cooked from end-to-end and incredibly tasty.
