There are only two of us for Christmas dinner. The recipe on the Anova site is for a three pound roast. The smallest roast I could find is 4.5 pounds. This calls for 3 pound for 6 hours at 132 F. Should I do 4.5 pounds for 7 hours at 132? Thank you and have a joyous Christmas.

I will answer my own question. I did the roast for six hours at 132 F then browned in a 425 oven for about 10 min. The foast was good but I would call it medium. Next time I will try 124 F for six hours.

Jimyra, this post must have sled through the forum fast, I never saw it. I do all my Beef Roasts at 130 degrees. The steaks are ok at 126 because it's a much shorter cooking time. I also brown my roasts in a pan on the stove in some hot oil just to crisp and brown.......Take care and have a great New Year..........ChefBillyB

Food safety wise, you shouldn't do less than 131 for anything over an hour.

Good point. I did come on a minimum temp for over four hours that was unsafe. At my age I can forget anything in four hours. Thanks for the response. I am old to many methods in the kitchen but new to Sous Vide. An old dog learning new tricks.
