Octopus

I found live octopuses at the market today. To be frank, I've never cooked octopus before; I only use it for soups and they are the dried ones. After cleaning it, I tried cooking one of the tentacles in water. Results not good- very bland and chewy. Now what if we sous vide them ? So I took out some of my Lo mein sauce, placed some in with extra oil to have a confit effect, then vacuumed them on high and put them in the water bath at 85 degrees. It'll be interesting to see how they turn out.
