Cooking meals with the sous vide method has changed my life. It delivers delicious results every time with minimal effort, and made it way easier to meal prep healthy meals for myself throughout the week. Along with the Instant Pot, its one of the best kitchen inventions to come along in years and something I whole-heartedly recommend to everyone I know.
To put it briefly, sous vide is a cooking process where you submerge sealed food into water that’s held at a precise temperature for many hours, resulting in perfectly cooked meats and veggies that can be finished up with a quick sear in a hot pan.

GERYON Vacuum Sealer Machine – Save $17
You can absolutely get away with slowly submerging Ziploc bags to push out the air and get a quick and cheap seal for cooking sous vide, but you’re better off getting a vacuum sealer instead.
My favorite thing to do is to pre-seal portions of my favorite proteins — steaks, salmon, and chicken breasts in particular — and just throw them in the freezer. Then they’re ready to go and it’s a simple matter of setting the sous vide temp and tossing in the pre-sealed back of food in the bath. Meal prepping has never been easier.
