Set sous vide machine to 58C /136F. In a bowl, mix together olive oil, balsamic, garlic and dijon mustard. Salt and pepper the pork chops to taste. Place the chops in a freezer bag with the balsamic dijon sauce and fresh sage, and get rid of the air by means of a vacuum cleaner or the displacement process. Drop pork chops in the bath for 1 hour.

02. Finishing of sous vide pork chops

Remove bag from tub. Take chops from the bag, pat dry and gently re-season with pepper and salt to taste. Discard the sage from bag, and place the balsamic Dijon sauce aside. Heat medium size pan on high and add oil. Burn for 60 seconds on each side. Remove from pan and place on plate to break. Lower the heat to moderate, add sauce out of bag and simmer for 4 minutes or until thickened. Put pork chops back in the pan and coat both sides with sauce for around 1 minute. Serve and enjoy!

03. Sous vide pork chops time and temperature

Through tons of experimentation, we have found that cooking sous vide pork chops at 58 C/136 F for 1 hour is the best combo. Cooking the 1″ boneless pork chop for an hour is only enough time to reach a perfectly juicy beverage. Additionally, setting the pork chop temperature in 136 F guarantees that the protein is a gorgeous medium rare with terrific texture. Just be sure that you get a reliable sous vide that accurately regulates the temperature of the tub or your results may vary. For additional time and temperature choices, take a look at Breville Joule that how i have manged the temperature through this amazing product.

04. Special Equipment for sous vide pork chops

Sous Vide Machine — To cook sous vide pork chops , you are going to want a device to precisely regulate the temperature of the water. Both best sous vide machines in the sport right now are the Anova Precision Cooker and the Breville Joule. The principal difference between the two is that with the Anova you are able to control the apparatus both manually and using a mobile device, and with the Joule you can just control the device by using your mobile device. In any event, both sous vide machines are high class and you cannot go wrong with either option.

12-quart Container — Though you can use a simple stockpot to your sous vide cooking requirements, I highly recommend purchasing a large plastic container. They are cheap and spacious, so you won’t need to worry about cooking a huge roast in a little pot. I suggest that a 12-quart Rubbermaid container, as it’s BPA free, hardy, and big enough for just about anything you’ll be cooking.

Container Lid — If you will purchase a plastic container, then I highly suggest purchasing a compatible lid for this. When you sous vide for a long run, the warmth of the water causes evaporation. Using a lid, it gets rid of a vast majority of the evaporation so that you can cook for 72 hours.  

Cast Iron Skillet — If you’re trying to take your searing game to another level, we recommend investing in a cast iron skillet. Using a cast iron in this recipe, you will attain a deep sear on the protein. Cast irons are also extremely convenient for searing nearly any and all sous vide meat. Lodge provides the best quality and cost, and that’s why it is our favorite cast iron manufacturer.
