Sous Vide Cooking Chart
Sous Vide Cooking Times & Temperatures
Sous vide literally means “under vacuum” in French. When you cook something sous vide, food is placed in a vacuum-sealed bag in a water bath at precise temperatures, often well below the boiling point. The intent is to cook the item evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked without overcooking the outside, and to retain moisture.
The following sous vide cooking charts provide the corresponding target temperatures for your desired doneness, and the recommended cooking times are provided by food type. Sous vide cooking is a fool-proof way to bring a given food to its perfectly cooked temperature. But perfection, to a degree, lies in the taste of the beholder. That’s the beauty of the precision of sous vide cooking! You can find delicious sous vide recipes on our blog; like this spring risotto.
Use the chart below as a reference and once you have determined what perfection means to you, you can dial it in every time precisely to your liking.
