Sous Vide Chuck Roast

Sous Vide Chuck Roast

Amazingly, Sous Vide turned a $5 cut to a $10+ steak. Sous Vide Chuck Roast, if handled patiently and properly, tastes juicy, tender, has some chew to it yet not tough at all. The marbled nature of chuck also brings in lots of flavor. It takes between 24-30 hours to sous vide, but that’s done while you are doing something else. The final finishing only takes 15 minutes. Perfect for a weekday dinner while you do all the prep over the weekend. Pair with ultra crispy roast potato, and garlic green bean, what a great dinner!
