(Sous Vide) Bacon, Lettuce, and (Homegrown) Tomato Sandwiches Wednesday, July 22, 2020, 12:31 PM


We made BLTs with some homegrown tomatoes! The tomatoes were the real hit but we also tried using sous vide bacon (see below the tomato pictures). We served on ciabatta rolls

Sous Vide Bacon

I read the Food Lab article1 where Kenji says he shared the same apprehension I had about sous vide bacon (LOCAL): that it is a hammer-and-nail type problem. Well, I decided to try it and it worked pretty well!

I sous vide cooked it for about 16hrs at 145. It was center-cut bacon and not particularly thick but it worked well. I suspect it would work even better with really thick cut bacon. Would I do it again? Absolutely! Would I rush to do it again? No. It was good but I doubt it'll become my main way of making bacon. But maybe with really thick cut.
