Undeniably, poultry is where sous-vide shines. Unlike red meat, which can be eaten with a gradient of doneness, so the outside is gray and the inside is pink, with poultry, you need to cook it through. With a larger cut, like turkey breast, it’s impossible to cook the inside without overcooking the outside. Sous vide allows the entire piece of turkey to cook at the same time, so it’s completely, perfectly done. It‘s amazingly flavorful and never, ever dry!

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspooon salt

  • 1 2-pound (1-kilogram) boneless, skinless turkey breast, sometimes known as turkey London broil (see note)

  • 1 tablespoon oil

Directions

Prepare the Turkey

1.

Mix the honey, lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper. Place the turkey in a heavy-duty ziplock bag or in a vacuum sealer bag. Add marinade to the bag. For a ziplock, submerge the bag in a bowl of water until just below the opening of the bag so the air is squeezed out, then seal the bag. For a vacuum sealer, set the machine to wet seal.

2.

When ready to serve, heat oil and flour in a small saucepan. Stir well and cook for one minute. Add the juices from inside the turkey bag and whisk until no clumps remain. Slice the turkey thinly and serve with gravy on the side.

3.

Place the turkey in a sous-vide set to 143°F (62°C). Cook for four hours or up to eight hours.

Notes:

You can follow the same time and temperature for any size turkey you would like to use.

When it says 4-8 hours what does that mean? Why would you do 4 or 8? Is it fully cooked at 4 hours? Is it softer at 8?

Recipe incomplete? I am about to marinate my turkey breast to prep it for sous vide. Your serving instructions say to heat oil and flour but there is no oil in the ingredient list. Can I assume that it would be the same 2 Tbls of oil to match the 2 Tbls flour listed for a classic roux?
