sous vide vs. braising?

jedovaty | Sep 27, 2012 05:22 PM

I've been cooking sous vide style for over a year, using a home-made water-immersion circulator (pid, PT-100 probe, relay, fish-tank pump, and 1200W heating element) dunked into a beer cooler.

I've noticed many a time the vacuum-sealed bags puff up a little and get filled with juices from the food - this was especially the case when I did a 10lb brisket for 48 hours.

How is that different from braising, other than environment temps?
