What is Sous Vide?
Sous vide is a culinary term that refers to a style of cooking where ingredients are cooked in a water bath at a controlled temperature.
Here’s the idea behind it: let’s say you love medium-rare roast beef. That’s about 125-F to get to medium-rare. But you cook your roast in the oven at what, 350-F or 375-F? So you need to pull that roast out of the oven at just the right time when it hits 125-F.
This is hit-or-miss cooking.
With sous vide cooking, the water temperature is strictly controlled to the temperature you want your meat to be. So, for that roast, you’d set the water temp to be about 125-130F. The meat will NOT cook any higher than that temperature because the water, its cooking environment, is not any higher than that.
Equipment Needed To Make Keto Sous Vide Pork Roast
Sous Vide cooker – I love my Anova. It has a terrific app that comes with it so I can control it remotely. It is also quiet. It is this device that controls the temperature of the water and keeps it circulating.
Large pot or container – to hold the water and the roast. I have the Anova container that fits the sous vide cooker.
Freezer Zip-Top Bags – this will hold the meat while under water.
Vacuum Sealer – this is the preferred method for containing the meat and flavorings. Put it all in the bag, seal it, and you’re good to go.
Ingredients To Make Sous Vide Pork
Pork Loin – I used a 3lb roast
Salt & Pepper
How to Make Keto Sous Vide Pork Roast
Give the pork roast a rinse to remove any bone chips. (Pork is notorious for having bone chips – I always rinse every cut of pork feeling for gritty bone chips.)
Score the top of the roast (the fatty top) to allow the marinade to really get in there.
Mix the thyme, Dijon and Worchestershire sauce in a small bowl, then slather it all over the roast. Get in there with your hands!
Season both sides of the roast with salt and pepper then stuff it into the bag. Distribute the onion and garlic as best as possible on both sides of the roast.
Seal the bag, bring the water to a temperature of 150-F, then sous vide your roast for about 3 1/2 hours.
