My Cook: Sesame Chicken

March 6, 2019

 

Serves: 4

Total prep time: 20 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Sesame chicken is a classic Americanized dish found in Chinese restaurants across the United States. Sweet, sour, and sticky, this dish is usually deep fried, but we have adapted this recipe for your Suvie without sacrificing any flavor. Typically this dish is sweeter than it is spicy, but if you want to up the heat feel free to increase the amount of chili sauce to 1..

My Cook: Baked Stuffed Shells

March 1, 2019

Serves: 2-3

Active prep time: 25 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Baked stuffed shells are the perfect parcel of pasta, filling, and sauce. We stayed with a classic combination of large pasta shells, marinara sauce (jarred or homemade, up to you), and creamy ricotta filling flecked with basil and red pepper flakes. No need to boil the shells before you put them in your Suvie, the long cook time will adequately soften them. Filling..

My Cook: Breakfast Snack Cake

February 28, 2019

For busy mornings look no further than this delicious and wholesome breakfast snack cake. Packed with oats, applesauce and bananas and topped with crunchy nuts and coconut this cake is as satisfying as it is tasty. When testing this recipe we liked a good amount of honey to complement the flavor of the nuts and coconut, but you can decrease the amount if you would like it less sweet. If you have dietary restrictions this cake can easily be..

My Cook: Mississippi Pot Roast

February 21, 2019
- Beef,

This recipe comes to us from Kickstarter backer Shaneh Woods, who told us that this was her favorite slow cooker recipe, so we had to try our hand at adapting it for her Suvie! There are few ingredients, but combined they provide a punch of flavor. Here we use chuck roast, a classic cut for slow cooking, tangy and spicy pepperoncini peppers, butter, and a combination of dry ranch dressing and au jus gravy mix. The ranch and the au jus mix are..

My Cook: Spinach Lasagna and Meat Lasagna

February 11, 2019
- Pork,
- Beef,

In busy households with many different dietary preferences and proclivities it’s nice to be able to provide some dinner choices. No need to decide between meat lasagna and spinach lasagna here, because Suvie lets you have both. In this recipe we utilize the same cheesy ricotta mixture for the base of each lasagna, use the same marinara, and divide the same melty cheese on top of each lasagna, but swap out meat for spinach in one of the pans...

My Cook: Molten Chocolate Brownies

February 5, 2019

For Valentine’s day we are serving up these ooey-gooey chocolate brownies for a rich and decadent treat. To make these brownies so delicious we employ a few tricks to coax out the complex and multifaceted flavor of chocolate. First, we brown the butter to infuse the batter with toasty, nutty flavors that aren’t accessible in melted butter alone. If you’re short on time you can melt the butter without browning it, but you’ll be missing out on a..

My Cook: Carnitas Tacos

January 30, 2019
- Pork,

Pork shoulder and pork butt are tough cuts of meat that benefit from long, slow cooking times. In this recipe we utilize the Suvie slow cook setting to help break down the meat's muscle fiber, thereby producing tender, juicy pork. You can use either pork shoulder or pork butt in this recipe, however, pork butt will give richer and juicier results, due to the intramuscular fat that naturally exists in pork butt. (Pork butt, for the record,..

My Cook: Spicy Miso Tofu with Broccoli Rice

January 22, 2019

Tofu is the perfect blank canvas to showcase the power of sous vide cooking; tofu readily absorbs the marinade that it is exposed to during vacuum sealing and cooking. Cooking tofu in Suvie ensures that there is marinade throughout the tofu and not just on the surface. This delicious marinade is smoky, sweet, and savory thanks to chipotle peppers, brown sugar, and miso paste. It’s so delicious that we reserve half of the marinade to serve as a..
