Step 2:
Keeping meats and vegetables separate, season with Williams-Sonoma Fajita Rub, salt and pepper.

Step 3:
In separate pouches, vacuum seal vegetables in one pouch. Vacuum seal beef or chicken in the other.

Step 4:
Place sealed bag in circulating water bath and cook for 60 minutes.

Step 5:
If serving immediately, remove beef or chicken from bag and slice. For later use, remove bag from water bath, quickly shock in ice water bath.**

Step 6:
Preheat a large non-stick pan over high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Step 7:
Sauté chicken/beef and vegetables until nicely browned.

Step 8:
