boneless pork loin chops, 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick
teaspoon Italian seasoning
teaspoon garlic powder
tablespoon vegetable oil
Stockpot or deep polycarbonate food-safe container (minimum 12-quart capacity)
Sous vide machine
heat-safe quart-sized plastic vacuum storage bags for sous vide
- 1Fill stockpot or deep polycarbonate food-safe container with hot tap water according to sous vide machine’s manufacturer’s instructions. Set sous vide machine temperature to 145°F.
- 2Season pork chops with Italian seasoning, salt and garlic powder. Place 1 pork chop in each bag. Seal each bag with vacuum sealer according to manufacturer’s instructions. Refrigerate pork until ready to use. Once water reaches sous vide machine’s set temperature (145°F), lower prepared bags into water bath, and continue to cook at least 1 1/2 hours and up to 2 1/2 hours or until pork chops reach 145°F. Carefully remove bags from water bath. Cut open bags, and transfer pork chops to plate; discard remaining liquid in bags, and pat pork chops dry.
- 3To sear pork chops after sous vide cooking: Rub pork chops with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Heat 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add pork chops; cook 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes on each side, until just browned.
- When testing this recipe, we used an Anova Precision® Cooker that clips onto the side of the container with an adjustable clamp. This is a stick-type, immersion-style sous vide machine. Follow manufacturer’s directions for your own device.
- To vacuum-seal the pork chops, we used a FoodSaver® countertop vacuum sealer system on the moist-seal setting.
- For the best sear, the skillet should be very hot before you add the pork chops. Tip: Sprinkle a few droplets of water into hot skillet to test the temperature; if it’s hot enough, droplets will sizzle and scatter across the surface.
- Serve these pork chops with steamed or roasted vegetables and Pillsbury™ crescent rolls to round out your meal.
