Eggs are composed of sets of proteins that gel in predictable ways at very specific combination of time and temperature. The time and temperature will vary until you find the texture that you prefer.


  • Egg yolk
  • Oil

Preparation method:

Heat the water bath at temperature 144 degrees Fahrenheit / 62 degree Celsius. The lower the temperature will runnier the yolk.

Now find a small and deep tray that is ideal with a lip. That should fit in the water bath. A flat bottomed container keeps the yolks separate during cooking.

Fill a pan with oil and will support convection within the oil as well as insulated the surface to ensure even cooking.

Separate the egg yolks from white. You have to pass the yolk from one hand to other and slip the yolks into the oil.

Gently stir the oil by moving the spoon in between the yolks. Take care not to crowd the pan and to remove it without ruining the others.

Set the pan into the water bath and the water should be above the level of the oil but it should not spill into the pan.

Cover the pan with lid and cook sous vide for one hour.

The yolks will hang out in the water bath for another one to two hours before they become too thick.

Do you need a sous vide temperature probe?

Do you need a sous vide temperature probe?

When we first got our sous vide machine, we had to find out whether or not we really needed a sous vide temperature probe. We were on the fence about whether or not they were actually necessary or not, so we decided not to get one. We figured that if we actually needed one, it would be quite apparent and then we could get one later.

After cooking with our sous vide machine for a few weeks, we noticed that the temperatures weren’t always accurate on the machine. We figured that there was always gonna be some type of fluctuation, however even recipes that were highly rated, were coming up with inconsistent meat texture.

At this point we decided that we are going to need a sous vide temperature probe. Ever since we got one, our meat has been coming out much better. It’s kind of amazing how much having the correct temperature can impact sous vide cooking. It’s a lot different than cooking on a grill, where all the heat is pretty much even around. You’re also not having to deal with the temperature as much when you’re cooking on the grill. All you have to ensure is that there is a flame and that the grill has been heated for at least five minutes.

However, that’s obviously not the case with sous vide cooking. That’s why we recommend that if anyone is going to be cooking sous vide , that they get a sous vide temperature probe. It’s a purchase it’s very inexpensive and one that you will not regret.

Now we know that a lot of sous vide machines do come with temperature probes on them. However, you need to make sure that they are highly reviewed machine and not one of the cheap ones. A lot of manufacturers throw sous vide temperature probes on the machine as a selling feature. However, they don’t actually put a lot of design into the sous vide temperature probe. It’s more of an after effect and kind of a side feature. It’s kind of like having a glossy paint job on your car. It doesn’t serve much purpose and is more of a cosmetic feature than a practical one. However, this isn’t the case if you get a high-end sous vide machine.
