Prep Time: 00:00

Recipe Time: 03:00

Temperature : 145F / 62.8C



  1. Set your Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 145ºF / 62.8ºC
  2. Season the turkey breast or thighs with salt and pepper and place in a large zip-lock bag.
  3. Seal using the water immersion technique. Place the bag in the water bath and sous vide for 3 hours.

Finishing Steps

  1. Meanwhile, set a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil and butter. When the butter foams, add the onions and mushrooms and cook until they start turning golden, about 5 minutes.
  2. Shake the flour overtop and stir to coat. Add the stock and cream, bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  3. Remove the cooked turkey breast or thighs from the sous vide bag, slice and slide into the pan with the sauce, or serve with the sauce spooned overtop.
  4. (If you used skin-on turkey, you could brown the cooked pieces in the skillet first to crisp the skin, then transfer to a platter and cook the mushroom sauce in the same skillet to spoon overtop.)
