Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. The price for a sous vide cooker has come down drastically from a few thousand dollars to the low hundreds. Finally this incredible technique previously only available to expensive restaurants and famous chefs is now within the means of family cooks. This recipe uses the sous vide’s low temperature and long cooking time to infuse deep Rosemary and Bell Pepper flavor into the meat. Tender and juicy pulled pork is amazingly different than pulled pork done the regular way. Rather than typical plastic bags for the sous vide, I have found that aluminum foil gives better conductivity and not as expensive as sous vide bags. The plating of this dish shows one serving.
