Slow cooking food has become very popular and specially sous vide, a method of cooking in which food is sealed in airtight plastic bags then placed in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled environment for longer than normal cooking times.
I have learnt that a dishwasher also keep a steady temperature and we know that we can choose the temperature we wash our dishes .
I haven’t invested in an expensive water-bath machine, but I saw a short video where one prepares food in the dishwasher and I’ have a dishwasher. A few years ago I saw or read something about someone wrapped a turkey in aluminum foil and cooked it in the dishwasher, YUCK, I thought then. But if you sealed your food in jars or vacuum pack them you will keep them away from the dishwashing liquid.
I made dinner fo two, but the jars I used was big enough for 4 normal portioned dinners.
Dishwasher dinner for 4
3 0,75 l jars
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 stalk chopped celery
liquid mixture I used was
1 part white wine
2 parts water
salt and pepper as desired
4 dl couscous
4 dl water
Juice of 1 lemon, or use other flavoring, herbs and spices for example.
1-1.5 tsp salt or as desired
1 pk asparagus tops
1 package green beans
1 tablespoon butter
1 vegetable bullion/stock
fill the jar with water.
Put your jars in the dishwasher.
I set mine on 65 C for 2 hours.
The result was tender and juicy shrimps, crisp vegetables and fluffy couscous
