So I've got two half racks in two different bags vac sealed and ready to reheat, and I'm craving ribs, now.   I have never microwaved or put in water, leftovers in vac bags before.  I've always taken them out of the bags, and ad hoc a reheat method.  

What's the best way to get vac sealed leftover ribs done NOW for dinner??

    Hmmmmm. I use the defrost setting in the microwave and just warm them up but never tried it with ribs in a vacuum sealed bag. I don't think it would make much difference.

    Hot water on the stove.  Do it all the time.  Being able to go from freezer, to the stovetop to the plate is the whole beauty of the foodsaver.

  • I asked this same question a week or so ago. I heated a crock pot full of water on low, it was around 120. I tossed the bag in there and let it heat up for a while, they were frozen so I left them in for I think 2 hours. Tasted absolutely amazing, completely reinforced my decision on the FoodSaver.

    It completely reinforced your decision on the Food Saver because of the type of bag that was used to seal (can be frozen or boiled) or because it is vacuum sealed and you know no water will get in? Or both?

  • I have a food saver and never really use it for cooked food so I can just q some meat vacuum seal freeze and then reheat in hot water and good as new? Damn I've been missing out if this is the case

    Yup. It's a big part of my BBQ world.
    I only cook for my wife and I but I go big with all my low and slow cooks just to store lots of individual meals in my freezer.

  • Nice and it really tastes almost as good as right off the grill I'm gonna start loading the egg up and start sealing//any particular way of reheating better boiling water that croc pot method?

    I use boiling water because it is faster. Works great every time.
