It's getting colder, so we've been craving hot comfort food. The best way to achieve those comfort foods — with the slow cooker! We received one as a gift from my fiancé's mother and we actually didn't use it for a while. But lately, my fiancé has taken it upon himself to become the slow cooking king. Now, there's another cooking method he can easily master with the slow cooker.
Cooking with a slow cooker is like cooking for dummies. There's not really much you can screw up (but don't tell my fiance that, he really thinks he's a chef now). A method that will really go to his head — hacking our slow cooker into a sous vide.
Jeff Potter, author of Cooking for Geeks made a very insightful and interesting video about how to hack your slow cooker into a sous vide. He explains that by hacking it you can better control the temperature that the slow cooker reaches. He demonstrates by cooking absolutely perfectly poached eggs.
That $122.48 is a lot cheaper than the average sous vide machine on the market for $449!
