What's going on your dinner table tonight? Do tell! I am making ribeye steaks. I am doing them with my new sous vide immersion circulator. The chef at our usual hangout said to put them in the bag with a pat of butter, some freshly chopped rosemary and thyme, and kosher salt/ground black pepper so that's what I did. I let them sit and marinate for about an hour before putting them into the water. It will take them about 2 hours to cook and then I have to do a quick sear in the cast iron skillet to get some color on them. To go with the steaks I am making garlic mashed potatoes and steamed garlic green beans. Yum! That's what's happening here. What are YOU having? I want to know!

You can cook sous vide in a big pot of water on your counter or even the stove top if you have an outlet nearby. I've just been using the "big" pot that I usually use to boil water for pasta or potatoes for mashed potatoes. The actual immersion circulator is just a bit bigger than an immersion blender and smaller than my reusable metal water bottle. I haven't even had to find a spot for it yet because I've used it 3 times since Monday!

@KristenH This is the one that I have. The chef at our "place" says it is the best one available and it is the one that he has too. My husband's aunt gave it to us because she received it as a present and never used it. She knows I love to cook. I was thrilled to get it b/c I've been wanting one for years. This one costs $99 for "the best one" out there. There are other brands available but I don't know if they are much cheaper.
