To start, rinse the meat and sprinkle some seasoning salt all over it, making sure it penetrates deep into the meat.

People sous vide chuck roasts for several reasons. Firstly, chuck roasts are typically a tougher cut of meat that require slow cooking methods to break down the tough connective tissue and render the fat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful piece of meat. Sous vide cooking is an ideal method for achieving this tenderness because it allows the meat to cook slowly and evenly at a low temperature over a long period of time.
Secondly, sous vide cooking also helps to preserve the moisture and natural flavors of the meat, which can be lost when cooking with traditional methods such as roasting or braising. The vacuum-sealed bag used in sous vide cooking keeps the meat moist and prevents it from drying out or becoming tough.
Finally, sous vide cooking also allows for precise temperature control, which is important when cooking a chuck roast to a perfect medium-rare temperature from end to end. With traditional cooking methods, it can be difficult to achieve an evenly cooked roast, but with sous vide cooking, you can ensure that the entire roast is cooked to the same temperature.
Overall, sous vide cooking is an excellent method for preparing chuck roasts, as it results in a tender, flavorful, and perfectly cooked piece of meat.
