What is “Sous Vide”?

Sous-vide cooking is a cooking method in which the product is cooked in a special vacuum-sealed bag and then placed in a water or steam bath to cook. This cooking process is very gentle on the roast goose. The low heat makes the cooking result particularly tender and juicy. The juice stays in the food until the pouch is opened for consumption or further processing. Meat cooked “Sous-vide” has more flavour because nothing of the good stuff can escape during cooking.

Product handling

Cooking Instructions

Take the goose out of the fridge one hour before preparing it. Remove the goose from the bag. Place skin side up on a baking sheet. Coat the goose with any leftover juices or fat from the bag.

Heat oven to 175°C (Fan) or 200°C (Convection). Cook the goose for 30 minutes. Remove the goose from the pan, and set aside. Carefully pour the juices from the pan through a sieve and into a measuring jug, then return the goose to the pan. Put the goose back in the oven for another 15 minutes until golden-brown.

Meanwhile, heat 350 ml of water until it starts to boil. Add the enclosed sauce powder and whisk. Add 250ml of the collected goose juices and stir into the sauce. Bring to the boil briefly and you’re done.

Serve the roasted goose and Guten Appetit!

Gourmet tip: sauté 50g onion cubes in butter and add 50ml of red wine to the sauce.

Side Dish Recommendation

Red Cabbage and Potato Dumplings.
