Tonight I thought I’d cook something a bit different, so I put a couple of pork chops in my home made sous-vide!
Recipe (serves two or one hungry man):
- Two pork chops, deboned
- Two shallots, finely chopped
- Honey, one desert spoon
Salt the chops lightly, then put all the ingredients into a zip-lock bag, squeeze out the air by holding the bag under the water and close the seal. Cook for about two hours at an average temperature of 55˚ Celsius.
When the the time is up, put a large frying pan on the stove and sear the chops until they look suitably delicious. You can also pour out the contents of the bag (which should be water and shallots) into the pan if you like. I served it with a tomato on a bed of noodles and garlic mushrooms.
Obviously if you’re going to cook anything in a sous-vide you need to be careful and make sure that you use the right type of plastic bag and that the food is properly cooked before you eat it.
