I'm looking to buy some new pots and pans and would like to tap into your knowledege and experiance with them. Which pans tend to yield the best and most consistant results. Same for pots. Any and all recommendations would be greatly appriciated, thank you in advance.
I really want to improve the flavor of my chicken breast so I want to try to inject brine with fat and flavors.
I would like to try brining with some hydrocolloids. The one example I found is this: https://torontofoodlab.com/2013/08/20/meat-tenderizing-with-a-carrageenan-brine/.
However I cannot apply that to my chicken breast because I am cooking it sous vide, so the chicken will not reach the temperature needed for the carrageenan to gel.
I am thinking of using Methyl cellulose, first disperse in hot water, then leave it for 24 hours in the fridge, then add salt, fat and flavors and inject it.
I am afraid that until it reaches the 50C or 60C that the Methyl cellulose needs in order to gel, the liquid will escape.

Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
Brisket „Stroganoff“ Sous Vide With Mixed Mushrooms
Ingredients for 2 servings
about 400g well marbled Brisket
3 tablespoons rice bran oil or other high smoke point oil (grapeseed oil)
3 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
3 tablespoons Cognac (brandy)
2 small onions, finely diced
½ yellow or red bell peppers cut into strips
90 g mixed mushrooms
100 ml of gravy from last Brisket (or concentrated stock)
1 teaspoon mustard, Dijon type
1 teaspoon paprika mild (not spicy!)
1 medium pickled cucumber cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
approx. 120g sour cream with herbs
Sous Vide - cooking
Marinate brisket with Mexican style (medium hot) marinade in the vacuum bag for at least 3 days at 1 ° C, cook sous vide 48 hours at 55.0 ° C.
Preparing the sauce
At a moderate heat sauté onions in olive oil, add peppers (preblanched in the microwave oven for 2-3 minutes) and mushroom mixture, stir-fry, remove from heat and add the gravy. Add pickled cucumber, pepper, mustard and cognac. Put on very low heat, add sour cream and keep warm, but do not boil as the cream will separate. Remove the brisket from the bag, cut into strips (about 8x10x35mm), sear very quickly in smoking-hot rice bran oil, add the meat and the parsley to the sauce.
Serve on warmed plates. Typically served with spätzle (south German) or chnöpfli (Swiss).
And don't forget a glass of good red wine!
Enjoy your meal!
