Sous Vide Japanese Savory Egg Custard
Aspiring Maven, Foodie, and Shutterbug | I've always had a great love for food and am fortunate to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, home to some of the most diverse and tastiest food in the country. With my Anova, I've brought that love home and am not only sharing ...
Ingredients for 2
4 Large Eggs, cold
2 Cups chicken broth (egg to broth ratio is 1 ml :2.5 ml)
2 Tablespoons Shiro Dashi (Japanese Soup Base) [optional]
1 Teaspoon Fish Sauce or Soy Sauce [optional]
Set your Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 176ºF / 80.0ºC
Add chicken broth and optional condiments to a large bowl. Crack eggs into bowl and gently whisk together thoroughly. Strain the mixture and then pour into small heat-safe containers or mason jars.
Wrap each container tightly with Seran-wrap if not using mason jars with lid. Place a trivet to elevate containers so the tops of the jars remain above waterline to prevent seepage.
Carefully add containers to the water bath. Containers should be submerged in enough water to reach level of contents inside. Sous vide for 1 hour.
Ready to serve and to eat. You may top the egg custard with many toppings including, crab, salmon roe, or even uni (sea urchin).
