When I came home in the morning, I knew that dinner would be easy tonight: I’d be searing off a pre-cooked sous vide tri-tip roast that was waiting to be consumed in my fridge.  To ensure that my total hands-on cooking time when I woke up in the evening was minimal, I proceeded to prep some broccoli and bacon for roasting.  After I stored everything in the fridge,  I filled up my SousVide Supreme and set the temperature for 130 F.

As soon as I got up later that evening, I preheated the oven to 400 F and placed my pre-cooked tri-tip roast into the SousVide Supreme.  Then, I finished preparing my tray of broccoli and bacon and popped it in the oven.
