|How to do this, for cheap|
Now, $75 is still a comparative bargain to $1200, but Fork in the Road can do you one better. Here’s the $1 sous vide method.
2.Fill a large pot up with cold water and place it in the sink.
3. Gently lower the ziplock bag into the pot of water until almost completely submerged, then zip shut the bag.
4. Bring a pot of water to whatever temperature you need. Place your ziplock bags in the pot of water. Maintain the temperature by adding ice cubes to the pot as needed. (A digital thermometer is helpful to determine the water’s temperature). Cook for the requisite amount of time.
5.Laugh at everyone who spent hundreds on fancy sous vide machines.
Granted, the process is a bit more labor intensive, but we’ve done this several times at home and can vouch for its efficacy. It might not be quite as perfect, but hey, it’s mad cheap.
