The Most Tender and Juicy Turkey Breast Ever

November 23, 2013

Sous vide may sound fancy but it's a simple way to cook foods to perfection. All that's required is a water bath and a vacuum-sealed bag. SousVide Supreme, makers of an affordable sous vide water oven, shows just how easy it is to make a tender, juice turkey breast in just 3 hours. Best of all, it requires little work on your end. Just season the turkey breast with salt and pepper, add lemon peel, sage leaves and butter to the cooking pouch, seal and submerge in a 145 degree F water bath. Then go have a glass of wine, relax and enjoy the afternoon. Once the breast is ready, you'll simply give it a quick sear to brown it. Thanksgiving was never so easy! Or delicious.
