Pre-marinade for freezer to sous vide?

Autumm2 | Sep 14, 201609:52 PM     8

I'm trying to eat healthier (less carbs and processed stuff) but with 2 little ones I have to manage my kitchen time carefully. I buy most of my meat in bulk at costco, and then food saver it down to sizes our family can consume in one meal. For grilling, I like to add some marinades to the pouch so as it defrosts, it can add some flavor. Grilling season is ending here in MN (and a challenge with a 1 year old who just wants MOM in the evenings) so I was wondering if it would work to add a marinade to something I plan to sous vide.

Typically, I'll make a jerk marinade, some teriyaki, Asian BBQ, faux Chipotle, etc so I have a variety of options. Has anyone done this, or how does a marinade work in a sous vide situation? I like the idea of dropping a bag into the sous vide pot and just needing 5 minutes to sear for easier meals, but I don't want to waste time/money if this isn't a good idea

Thoughts please!
