    Just pan fry in butter after seasoning. Melt some cheese and chilli. New potatoes and salad. Win (saying that as someone who has a sous vide machine the dirty secret about sous vide. Is that it's so the restruants can precook food so it can be finished off within a 1-2hr window. It isn't really optimatize for cooking for families)
