Carnivore Diet Sous Vide Meat and Steak Cooking

Choosing to Sous Vide instead of just standard pan frying or steaming can give you mouth watering steaks with an ease of cooking.

Choosing how to cook your steaks and other meat can be one factor a carnivore can use to control the consumption of carbon on meats. This carbon build-up from cooking is one of the leading factors in the belief behind meat being bad for us, so why not remove that issue than with a Sous Vide machine?

Carnivore Diet Sous Vide Cooking Benefits:

  • Enhanced Flavors - The meat and all the juices are sealed in together for the entirety of the cooking time which leads to amazing flavors being brought out of your meats.
  • Healthier Result - All the minerals and vitamins are self-contained within the bag and not lost as they would be in frying or steaming.
  • Better Texture and Tenderness - Sous vide meat is tender and moist and helps the meat maintain the texture from starting cooking to end and serving.
  • Never Overcooked - Sous Vide have extremely precise temperature controls, the same dish can be prepared time and time again achieving the same results
  • Perfectly Cooked Every Time - Sous Vide cooking is as simple and easy to use as any slow cooker. Once you’ve prepared the food to be cooked, like vacuum packing a steak, it’s as easy as placing the bag in the water bath at the right temperature.
  • Stress-Free Cooking - Sous vide cooking also makes it easy to cook many individual portions for a large group.
  • Bulk Cooking - You can cook numerous steaks at the same time and prepare multiple meals altogether. Once done cooking if you need so they can be individually bagged and frozen for later consumption.

Why haven't you heard of Sous Vide cooking more in the normal world, well much of it has to do with it being a part of higher-end restaurants. This means a majority of people actually have never encountered a Sous Vide machine before, I know that I hadn't until my wife purchased ours which changed my preparation of steak forever!

What Is Sous Vide?

Sous Vide is a method of cooking using low-temperature water bathed cooking which allows even tougher steak cuts to get cooked in a way that leaves them mouth melting. What you do is you build the cooking area, which some use plastic containers or other larger size container and you mount your Sous Vide.

Once the kitchen gear is setup you turn on the Sous Vide and set a temperature that you want it to maintain the water at. Once set it will maintain this temperature in the water from this point until you are completed cooking, which makes overcooking almost impossible.

Why Is Sous Vide Special?

Since Sous Vide uses meats and containers which are airtight this keeps in the flavors and prevents the foods from drying out. The term, Sous Vide, actually means "under vacuum" in French.

This refers to the process of vacuum-sealing the food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature inside a water bath. This cooking method produces near-impossible results to achieve through any other cooking method.

What is the Best Meat for Sous Vide Cooking?

This is where the serious benefits come from a Sous Vide, since you are cooking low and slow you can buy tougher cuts of beef or other meat which will become mouth-melting over time. These meats can save you a tremendous amount of money and allow you to eat more for less, along with the ability to buy bulk packages of steaks.

Best Quality Options For Sous Vide Machines

Hands down online through all the forums, posts and information I have read have all centered around the Anova Precision® Cooker Pro which has the power and controls to cook a near-perfect steak which can then be quickly grilled/seared and eaten!

Final Thoughts

I personally love this way of cooking and have expanded into making egg bites, similar to Starbucks, but much better ingredients like ham, egg, and bacon. I love to toss a few steaks in and be able to eat one and save one for the next day at work, nothing like an almost infallible cooking system!

I have used ButcherBox now for going on nearly 3 years as finding meat that isn't raised on candy or junk like corn isn't easy. Instead of spending hours searching to get the best quality I have chosen to have ButcherBox deliver me high quality meats, from Ribeyes, Brisket, ground beef... Others may choose chicken with all cuts from whole to breasts, thighs, and more Then add in my side favorite which is heritage pork that tastes sooooooo much better than any store bought pork I have ever had.
