Sous vide burger sliders are easy to make, with very little prep, and will result in the most flavorful, juicy burgers you’ve ever had!
Last week I joined my friends at Cox Communications in Baton Rouge for another “Cox Smart Home” event. I spent the day in the kitchen sharing tips and tricks for how to make your kitchen “smart” by incorporating WiFi enabled devices and appliances into your cooking.
One of the WiFi enabled devices in the smart home kitchen was the Anova WiFi enabled sous vide. I used this device at past events to make Steak Crostini‘s to share with guests of the event, but this time I decided to switch things up!
Since it is football season in Baton Rouge, I decided to serve some of my favorite game day recipes, like Slow Cooker Green Chili Queso Dip and Football Shaped Nutella Rice Krispie Treats. I then decided to make sliders in the sous vide, because they’re perfect for tailgating! Prep the sliders and toss them in the sous vide, remove them from the sous vide, take them to the tailgate, then give them a quick sear on the grill and you’ve got the most delicious and juicy sliders you’ve ever had in your life!
The first time I heard a friend talking about making a sous vide burger, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I’m here to tell you, it is amazing!
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 tbsp Montreal steak seasoning
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 12 small slices cheddar cheese
- 12 Hawaiian rolls
Combine the ground beef and steak seasoning. Form into 12 sliders. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and into the freezer for one hour.
Remove from the freezer and place 4 sliders each in 3 plastic zipper bags.
Since I don’t have a fancy vacuum sealer, I simply use the “water displacement method” of placing the airtight sealed bag with the sliders in it, almost all of the way under the water, leaving just about an inch of the top of the bag open, the water will press out all of the air around the food in the bag, you can then seal the bag closed.
Place the bags of sliders in a sous vide set to 130°F (for medium rare to medium – for medium to medium well, set the sous vide at 138°F) for 45 minutes – 3 hours.
Remove the sliders from the sous vide and the plastic bags and let rest on a paper towel lined cutting board for 10-15 minutes.
Before serving, heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat. Add the sliders and sear for 20-30 seconds per side. Alternatively, you can grill the sliders on high heat for 20-30 seconds per side.
Top with a slice of cheddar cheese and serve on Hawaiian rolls.
You can add your favorite toppings, such as ketchup, mustard, pickles, tomatoes or onions if you’d like, but I just served the burgers as is.
A sous vide burger is not a normal burger, it’s a burger of monumental flavor proportions, and with that said, I feel that it needs no additional toppings!
This is the first burger I’ve ever had that literally tasted like steak! It’s so tender, juicy and just down right delicious!
