Sous vide it yourself
1/ Vacuum seal your meat and veg – fill your sink with water and slowly submerge the food in a zip-lock freezer bag, pushing absolutely all of the air out, then zip it up. Alternatively, you can pick up a proper vacuum sealer like the Automated Food Saver ($ 249, thegoodguys.com.au). 2/ Buy yourself a rice cooker – something like the Kambrook Rice Cooker ($ 20, harveynorman. com.au) is considerably cheaper than a dedicated
sous vide machine. Fill it with water, heat it up and use the “keep warm” function to regulate the temperature, then drop in your sealed food parcel. 3/ Get out of food jail free – if you’re struggling with the DIY approach, splash the cash on the SousVide Supreme Water Oven ( US$429, sousvidesupreme.com) to get the food out on time.
Without all that costly equipment
