This guide will help you prepare a delicious meal using your sous vide ready sausages and sauces. First we break down the best method for cooking your sausages and heating up your sauces in Suvie. Then we provide recommendations for vegetables, grains, and pastas that pair perfectly with your sausages and chef-crafted sauces. Lastly, we suggest our favorite combinations of sauces, vegetables, and starches to pair with your sausages to build a complete meal.
Order your vacuum-sealed sausages and gourmet sauces directly from Suvie.
Please note that when using the sous vide mode in your Suvie we always recommend using the bottom zone. Because sous vide uses precise temperature control, it is important to cook in the bottom zone so that rising heat does not impact the temperature of the water in the top zone. You can sous vide in the top zone, but keep in mind that the temperature in this zone may be slightly higher than in the bottom zone. To learn more about sous vide sausages, explore our how-to guide.
1) Place vacuum-sealed sausages into a Suvie pan and cover with water.
2) Insert the pan into the bottom zone of your Suvie. Input the following settings, and cook now or schedule. If cooking from frozen, be sure to select “Yes” when asked if cooking from frozen.
Suvie Cook Settings
Bottom Zone: Sous Vide at 160°F for 30 minutes
3) After the cook, remove the sausages from their packaging and pat dry thoroughly. Pour sauce* into a Suvie pan and insert into the top zone of Suvie. Arrange sausages in a roasting rack set in a Suvie pan.
4) Set the top zone of Suvie to Reheat Mode for 15 minutes and the bottom zone to Broil for 7 minutes or until sausages are browned and fragrant.
5) Divide sausages between plates and serve with your selected sauce, or read on to learn how you can add your own vegetables and starches to build a complete meal.
*We recommend heating the Thai Coconut, Cilantro Lime, Lemon Herb, Marinara, Pesto, and Vodka Sauce in your Suvie. The Teriyaki, BBQ, Garlic Herb Butter, and Honey Mustard Glaze taste best when drizzled directly onto the sausagess before broiling.

Looking to round out your sausage and sauce selections to create a complete meal? We have a roundup of all our favorite vegetables and starches that pair best with our delicious sausages.

What if your protein is defrosted but your vegetables are frozen? What time do you set for broil on vegetables if frozen? Example – broccoli florets are 15 mins on broil. What about if frozen?
Hi Sam, good question. I would probably add 7 to 10 minutes to the broil time to give the vegetables time to thaw. For thinner or small vegetables (like green beans), I would add 5 minutes. Let us know if you try this and let us know how it turns out!
ok I will try this! Thank you.
