Antler and Fin Podcast: Sous Vide Venison French Dip and What is Sous Vide

I’ve taken the classic French Dip sandwich and updated it with some venison backstrap. The signs of a well-made French dip are easily distinguishable from the bad ones. The bread-to-meat ratio must be correct. The cheese must be melted, the bun toasted, and the meat a beautiful medium rare. The au jus must be flavorful and complement the meat as well. I believe I hit all those marks here for this sandwich.

About Sous Vide

Sous vide is French for under vacuum and points to a low-temperature-long-time cooking method that employs a gentle water bath to bring food up to temperature.

The under vacuum name comes from the fact that for sous vide, food usually gets vacuum sealed in plastic bags before being immersed in a tightly controlled heated water bath to cook.

This results in a perfectly cooked item, controlled to the very degree you want it to be.
