sous vide in something other than water?

last month

I’ve sometimes thought about dropping my Anova directly into a pot of poaching liquid, rather than have a barrier between the water and what’s being cooked. Think poaching seafood. If I did this, I’d probably plunge the SV in boiling water to sterilize before and after, just to be sure I’m not breeding anything. Offhand I don’t see why this shouod be problematic, but somehow something still bugs me abour it. Has anyone done this? Thoughts?
