For me, the overall structure of the book makes it more useful than other books. It gives you a "master recipe", instructions on how to sous vide the meat, and then follows it with multiple recipes using the master recipe. This is great for people who want to sous vide enough for a week, refrigerate, and then use it in 5 different recipes over the next few days. The variety of recipes using a single master recipe also gives you a really good sense of how versatile sous vide meat can be
Most importantly, the recipes seem really good. The book is fairly new so I have only had time to try three so far, but what I did make came out wonderfully. All the recipes look amazing and I have resolved to try them all, but its a real struggle to not remake those apple chutney pork chops I made last night again for dinner tonight. The other thing I like about the book is that it gives you ideas to that you may not have thought of before, and encourages you to experiment. In fact, right now I am thinking of experimenting with turning the pork master recipe into that "raw" pork tonkatsu I used to love back in Japan.
TL;DR: great book for experts and beginners alike, recipes are simple with really good flavours, and I actually learned quite alot despite having done sous vide for years
"Sous Vide Made Simple" is a cookbook dedicated to helping make sous vide cooking, well, simple. It is arranged by protein and contains a handful of master recipes, those recipes you want in your back pocket so you can customize them. These are things like eggs, chicken thighs, steak, and slow-cooked pork, among others, all made with neutral seasoning and cooked to perfection. There are then a few suggestions to spice up the already-cooked staples.
I personally love this layout and find it so handy. It means you can cook a ton of a protein in one go, and freeze it for later. Frozen vacuum-packed items reheat perfectly sous vide without losing any quality. Then you can just use those staples to throw together a quicker version of a classic meal. I tried Boeuf Bourguignon Pot Roast (with a few minor modifications) and I was surprised and impressed at the depth of flavor I got in only a half hour of cooking the sauce. I used short ribs au jus I ordered from Nomiku and cut them up to make smaller pieces, then added them into the flavorful sauce. It was a huge hit in our house.
Another item I would never have thought to cook sous vide, mushrooms, also turned out remarkably well. Mushrooms are one of the master recipes and as a mushroom lover, I knew I had to try them. In fifteen minutes, I had perfectly cooked mushrooms that then browned perfectly in a pan of butter. It saved a lot of active cooking time, which I always appreciate.
The design of the book is extremely user-friendly and is very readable. The recipes are all family-friendly and easy, primarily using ingredients I tend to have in my pantry. Because the main components can easily be made in advance, this is a great cookbook to have in your arsenal if you're on the go frequently.
With recipes packed full of flavor and a great layout, this is a cookbook I'll be going back to for convenient and delicious recipes to cook for my family. I definitely recommend giving it a try!
