Why does sous vide beff stroganoff take so long?

I get it. 48 hours is a LONG cook time. But what is the saying about things that come to those who wait? That is so true when it comes to sous vide co*king. The lower temperature, a controlled temperature, will allow the beef to cook and the connective tissue of the beef to slowly break down with out compromising the integrity of the texture of the beef. It is like the slow cooker version of this recipe but lower, slower, more controlled and better.

The spikes in heat that comes with stove top cooking or slow cooker cooking can cause the meat to seize and toughen up with a spike in temperature. With the water being maintained at 131 the meat will not rise above that temperature. It can't. The time that the ingredients are in the temperature zone is extended and they are able to marry or infuse flavors more naturally.

      Just wondering if there's any way I can use beef stew meat chunks for this in lieu of sirloin. I have so many 1# packages of "beef for stewing" from my half of a cow I'm trying to figure out different ways to use it. One can only consume so much beef stew! TIA!

      Can a filet be used and if so, how long in the sous vide? Need to use up filet meat from my freezer.

      • Sarah Mock

        I wouldn't use filet for this recipe. There is not enough fat in a filet for this long cook. I would recommend following the instructions (time and temperature) in my sous beef tenderloin post.

      Hi Sarah, I’m excited to try your recipe however I can’t seem to find what temperature you have the sous vide water at! I’m going to go for 120 and hope that works. I’ll get back to you and let you know how it goes, or

      You leave the sous vide bag open "to breathe"? Wouldn't it dry out over 48 hours?

      Reply

      • Sarah

        Thanks for the question Thomas. It doesn't! The water on the outside of the bag presses the bag close enough to keep it 'sealed' but open enough if air needed to escape. The moisture IN the bag also keeps the meat moist and tender.
