    Maybe I have too much time on my hands, but I got interested in modernist cuisine and sous vide about 2 months ago. I ended up getting an inexpensive sous vide and a nice plastic water bath.

    I've cooked up several dishes so far, but today I did a t-bone steak or 2. Low temp....136 F, long time...2 hours. I seasoned the steak with butter, rosemary and bay leaf, plopped it into the bath and let 'er go. After an hour, I put it into an ice bath, let it cool, then seared it on the gas grill for about 3 minutes/side. Sous Vide Steak & Peaches. WOW! The best thing so far. Here's the steak and some home grown peaches I grilled.

    I have never heard of a Sous Vide. For those also haven't heard of it- What is Sous Vide? | Everything You Need To Know | Anova Culinary
    It is quite interesting.

    PS- your dinner looks really good.

    There's a fello on my primary forum who is really into Sous Vide cooking.
    Me, I just bake in a toaster oven or use a crock pot. Nuttin' fancy.
