Sous Vide Barbecue Pork
Utilized in professional kitchens for years, sous vide is a largely hands-off cooking method, based in incredibly precise temperature control, that many home cooks are beginning to embrace for seamless, simple meal prep. After the initial investment in obtaining the necessary equipment, sous vide provides a no-fuss, foolproof route to incredible flavor and consistency. Take this succulent pork recipe, for example. It offers the texture of a perfectly cooked pork tenderloin paired with the rich flavor that comes with the fat you get in pork shoulder. A quick finish on a grill pan (or grill, if you’ve already got it heated) along with some barbecue sauce, and this pork gives the impression that you’ve spent hours manning a grill to achieve such consistency and flavor. Plus, if you want to prep for a cookout in advance, this method allows you to do so up to a week in advance, and have your delicious barbecue pork, potato salad, and slaw on the table in a matter of minutes.
