Directions

Steps for sous vide golden beets

  1. Set up Nomiku and turn dial to 85°C (185°F).
  2. Shave skin off beets and put in bag with butter. Remove air from bag, seal, and place in Nomiku water bath at 85°C for 40 minutes.

Steps for sous vide duck breast

  1. Gently score the skin of the duck into a crosshatch pattern, take care to not cut through into the flesh. Reserve the duck fat in skillet for the dressing.
  2. Warm skillet up to a medium high heat and sear both sides of the duck 1 minute each side. Seal duck breasts in bags and remove air. Cook in Nomiku water bath for 2 hours
  3. Take duck out of bag and place on paper towel to dry, season with salt and pepper as desired. Sear over high heat in a skillet to extract more fat and crisp up skin for 1 minute. Never go more than a minute or you risk overcooking the meat.

Dressing for salad

  1. For dressing: thoroughly blend duck fat, rice wine vinegar, ijon mustard, olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  2. Heat up a cast iron, sprinkle peaches with sugar, sear peaches face down until you get a nice char. Also works great on a grill.
  3. Wash and plate greens.
  4. Dice up sous vide beets to add to plate, add string beans, grilled peaches, and sliced duck breast with a line of blackcurrant jam on the duck.
  5. Top with crushed almonds and dressing.
  6. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
