Recipe for Your Sous-vide Machine

What in the world is sous-vide anyway? Sous-vide (pronounced sue-veed) is a cooking technique that utilizes precise temperature control to deliver consistent results using water and vacuum-sealed bags. You can find sous-vide machines that seal food in an airtight container (like a vacuum bag) and cook that food in temperature-controlled water.
