I am very new to sous vide and want to learn.

So I found this recipe for sous vide beans in a 1 quart canning jar to finish in 6 hours at 190 F by a trained chef and book author. Works for me since I do not have to watch the beans.By the not this site!!!

So, I measured out 225 grams of beans (as per recipe) and placed in a wide mouth glass canning jar and filled the jar up with water to about 1/2 inch of the jar rim (as per recipe). The authors' picture looked like the bean was Navy beans by size.

I love sandwiches. Soups and sandwiches all day erry day.

Deli meat is mostly processed expensive swollen meat loaded with salt and water. I know I can do better. I already have on roast beef. I was wondering if anyone would like to discuss their own deli meat at home tricks.

I have an Anova and recently did a 138/24hours round roast and sliced it up. The flavor was awesome, the texture i feel like i could have gotten it more tender. I have a real deli slicer, not a home one, and i think i could have brought it down another stop. Will continue to tweak.

I have piece of beef brisket that weighs 1032 grams (2.27 lb) that is 1.27 inches thick. I pulled the meat out of a curing brine today. I am planning on making pastrami/corned beef in a vacuum bag.

The game plan is to season the brisket, bag and sous vide for 12 hours at 185 degrees F (167 C).. I am treating the meat like my wood smoker. After the sous vide cooking, the meat will go into the smoker with hickory wood with fresh seasoning.

What I am asking about is the time and temperature for the sous vide water bath.

Thanks

 Anybody know which Mezzaluna is better suited to salads, not one specifically for herbs. Here's  a video of  a guy doing what I want to do. What is the instrument he is using to chop everything so effectively?
