What Is Sous Vide Cooking?
Sous Vide is an immersion cooking that cooks meat and other recipes in hot water. This is a French method of cooking that infuses flavor and provides moist delicious meat.
Water bath cooking is new to me, and I have to admit I am falling in love with it. Vacuum seal up your meat, drop in the temperature-controlled sous vide, and cook as directed.

How long to sous vide roast
You will make sure your sous vide temp is set at 145 degrees. Then you will cook your pork in the water bath for 24 hours.
This is going to fully cook your roast and infuse all the spices you rubbed all over the roast.
Once you are done, pat dry and then you will finish off roasting your pork roast in the oven. It helps lock in even more flavor to your pork roast and you can roast up vegetables to pair with it.
Can you overcook pork sous vide?
The beauty of water bath cooking is you control the temperature. You set it at 145 degrees, which means your pork can not go any hotter than that.
So that means, no overcooked or dried-out pork. You will pat it dry and sear of course, or roast in this case. That is when you run the risk of overcooking your pork.
Can I leave my sous vide unattended?
Go ahead and walk away from your vide if you want. Treat it like you would a crockpot or even your pressure cooker.
I don't like to leave the house if I have one running, but you can carry on with your day, and just randomly check. Of course since this cooks for 24 hours, you will be sleeping for a portion of cooking.
