The Epicurean Butter team has tried a new take on a typical meal. Of course, we have to keep the burger (because it is not a summer feast without one), and we are adding one of our favorite root vegetables, beets!
But instead of cooking everything on the grill, we took to the sous vide cooker to see how well our butters fared using this trending cooking style.
When cooking meats sous vide style, you do not usually include butter or other fats in the water bath, which is why we waited to add the butter until the searing stage. If you like your burgers extra garlicky or saucy, we think adding an extra tab or two of butter could really pay off.
For sous vide vegetable cooking, you often see recipes that include butter in the bag. Because we recommend adding only a touch of that maple syrup flavor on those beets, we would not add any more than 1 tbsp of the Maple Syrup Butter. You could also do half Maple Syrup butter and half unflavored butter if you wanted even less Maple flavor.
