  • Procedures:

    Celebrated by chefs from Heston Blumenthal to Thomas Keller, cooking sous vide calls for slowly heating vacuum-sealed food in water at low temperatures, locking in natural juices and flavors lost with other methods.

    Sous-vide cooking times may vary based on the device being used. Please consult your device’s owner’s manual and follow proper food-handling procedures.

    Preheat large pot of water to 185°F with the Sansaire Sous-Vide Immersion Circulator. Season the pork belly portions generously with salt, pepper, chile powder and oregano. Place each portion in separate zip lock bags with two thyme sprigs, two bay leaves, ¼ cup frozen stock, and 1 tablespoon butter. Place sealed bags in preheated water and slow cook for 8–10 hours. Remove bags with tongs and place in an ice bath to cool. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

    Note: Refer to Sansaire cooking guide for recommended bags and sealing instructions.

    To make glaze, combine bourbon, honey, vinegar, mustard and ketchup in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and reduce until thickened, 20–30 minutes. Cool completely until ready to use.

    To cook mustard greens, heat a large pot over medium heat. Add olive oil and shallots; sauté until tender, 3–4 minutes. Add mustard greens and stir to combine. Add chicken stock, bring to a boil, and cover pot. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15–20 minutes. Keep warm.

    To finish pork belly, remove portions from bags and trim excess fat. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat bottom with a thin layer of canola oil. Add pork belly portions and sear until browned on all sides. Towards the end of cooking, brush bourbon glaze on all sides to coat.

    To serve, place each pork belly portion on a separate serving plate with mustard greens. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
