Poor Man's Sous Vide

Recommended Posts

This is how I've done sous vide for years.  I used one of those Gatorade coolers with a spout on the bottom, so correcting the temperature was a simple matter of spouting out X liters of water and pouring in X liters from a kettle.  Usually I have to do that once in the 1-2 hours I'm bringing steak up to temperature.


It's especially useful for me, because in my opinion sous vide is a technology for managing a lot of food for a lot of people, like grilling for 30 people at a birthday party.  In that case, an actual sous vide machine is worthless, but a big fat Rubbermaid cooker is perfect.
