#2219: Fantastic Noodles Crispy Bacon Flavour

Here’s one I got from Jen in Australia a while back – thanks! I was waiting for the right time to review this. I thought maybe cooking some bacon sous vide style and then frying it up could be pretty epic. I did the sous vide-ing and my wife will be frying the bacon. Ready for meat candy time? Let’s do it!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add sachet contents and boiling water to cover the noodles. Cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry soup base.

An ultralight powder.

The vegetables sachet.

Says its a seasonal vegetable mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added applewood smoked bacon that was cooked ‘sous vide’ style with an immersion cooker for 21 hours and then seared on one side, a lightly toasted slice of white bread and a slow fried egg. The noodles came out decently; however were a little on the soft and mushy side. The broth was almost all slurped up by the noodles and was almost completely just a salt festival. I really would have to reach to call it bacon flavored. The vegetables hydrated well but seemed like the odd ones at the ‘let’s pretend to be bacon’ costume party. Saddened and disappointed. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155650502.

The instructions on making sous vide bacon. I use an Anova sous vide I got as a gift from NuTek – thanks again! I think the nicest part of immersion cooking is the lack of cleanup – really nice. Actually the best part is the food; I’ve done countless chicken breasts in this thing for 2 hours at 146 degrees farenheit and it comes out so amazingly good!
