(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
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.
