Recommended Cooking Times and Temperatures for Sous Vide

Looking to give this whole sous vide thing a shot? Sous vide cooking is slightly different than what you may be used to, it typically uses lower cooking temperatures for longer cooking times. In order to help ensure that your food is not over cooked, sous vide often cooks your food at the recommended serving temperature. This can be a big adjustment when you are used to setting your oven upwards of 300°F or using a skillet on the stove at "low", "medium", or "high". 
To help guide you through this transition we have put together our Recommended Cooking Times and Temperatures for Sous Vide Cooking. One for  Meat & Seafood, one for Vegetables, Fruits, and Eggs.

You just need to find what you are cooking and adjust the times and temperatures from the recipe you have to fit the sous vide recommendations.
