Sous Vide Vakuumgaren Steak Kochkurs

Was ist die Sous Vide Garmethode? Sous Vide Garen ist eine Garmethode die schon längere Zeit in der Sterneküche eingesetzt wird. Zu deutsch nennt man es unter Vakuumgaren. So gut wie jedes Sterne- Restaurant verwendet die Sous Vide Garmethode um die besten Garpunkte zu erzielen. Durch das Vakuumieren der Lebensmittel wird Sauerstoff entzogen und der Oxidationsprozess wird unterbrochen. Dadurch können sich die Aromen nicht verflüchtigen und das Lebensmittel verliert nicht so viel Flüssigkeit. Das marinieren oder würzen funktioniert unter dem Vaakumprozess auch effektiver. Es werden weniger Gewürze und Flüssigkeiten wie Öl oder Marinaden benötige, da durch das Vakuumieren die Marinade besser in das Lebensmittel eindingen kann. Das Lebensmittel kommt in einen Behälter voller Wasser das z.B. durch einen Sous Vide Stick bei gleichbleibender Temperatur temperiert wird. Je nach Lebensmittel wie Fisch, Fleisch, Gemüse und Obst wird die Garzeit und Temperatur anhand der Beschaffenheit und Dicke berechnet. Fleisch: Dry Aged RibeyeVorspeiße: MaissuppeBeilagen: BBQ-Soße, eingelegte Zwiebel, Bratkartoffel, geklärte Butter (Ghee)Dessert: Wilde Hilde Mousse au ChocolatUnterstützt durch einen Vortrag der Metzgerei Schönes Catering – Heiko Schöne – Gorxheimertal & Laudenbach über Haltung, Zucht und FleischkundeIn Kooperation mit der Finest Fit Küche WeinheimUnterstüzt durch CASO DESIGN
