Red wine poached pears are elegantly delicious while also appearing as a work of art on your plate. And of course, sous vide makes poached pears a breeze. Simply combine all of the ingredients into a bag and cook for 45 minutes. Serve immediately from the bag with vanilla ice cream and you have a light, yet satisfying, romantic dessert for two.

Certainly the best poached pears I’ve ever had at home. We used quite firm Bartlett pears, a Wente Cabernet Sauvignon, and raw sugar. They were amazing. Thank you for the recipe!
