Smart, experimental chefs already know they can use their dishwashers to cook a wide range of entrees, from salmon with couscous to Thanksgiving turkey. And it turns out this kitchen appliance makes perfect steak, too.
The above video from Cook With Meat explains how to use a dishwasher to mimic the sous vide method, the fancy master chef-approved technique that involves sealing food in an airtight bag, then cooking it slowly in a water bath of a consistent temperature. The method is a favorite because it prevents spices from evaporating, makes meat basically impossible to overcook and leaves a consistent texture throughout.
Sous vide cooking usually requires a pricey gadget or two, unless you hack it with a slow cooker, of course. And now, your dishwasher joins in the fun! Watch the video above for a step-by-step of how to make top-quality steak and clean your plates at the same time.
