I regret not making as thick of a glaze the second time I make belly, it was definitely the shining light from my first go at it. I reduced it down by about 75%, to the point that it looked like molasses, I thought it was going to be too thick but I was very wrong

I prefer the higher temp/less time approach as well, I think I did 10 hrs @ 170* and it was perfect

Cooked lamb and tri-tip over the weekend, the lamb was 10 hrs @ I think 154*, with some lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, cucumbers and garlic. broiled for maybe a couple minutes more than I should have, but it still turned out great.

For the tri-tip, I used the other half of a big chunk I got from costco a few weeks back, marinated in their "steakhouse" sauce/rub. 6 hours at 130*, broiled for 4 minutes on one side and 3 on the other, came out absolutely perfect (I would have done a touch less if it were just for me, but it was still a great med-rare).

Ya it was the rest of the boneless leg roast, most things I buy big and cut down/freeze for later, the downside of almost always cooking for just two

Default Re: Sous vide

Question for you gurus, a few of us are helping some friends move all day Saturday so I was trying to think of something easy we can all have for dinner at their new place without too much work/mess, so I'm gravitating towards pre-cooking a tri-tip and finishing it in their oven when we're ready to eat. I've pre-SV'd entrees before and finished on a grill/oven out of the fridge, but it's always been with thinner proteins (pulled carnitas, chicken strips)

If I did this with a thicker steak do I need to take anything into consideration in terms of making sure the inside is hot enough without overcooking the outsides? Or would 5-7 minutes in a broiler bring the whole thing from cold to hot? I was thinking maybe something like putting it in the oven at 200* for 15-20 minutes then cranking up the broiler and proceeding the same way I normally do when it comes straight out of the bath, or even cooking it at a lower temp in the SV so any oven overcooking will bring it up to the level of doneness preferred, but I don't know the best method. If I was making it at home I could put it in a bath at the same exact temp just before broiling, but I don't want to lug the equipment around when the place is already gonna be a mess. Any thoughts from anybody who has tried this?

Beef eye of round. Covered in spicy rub, smoke setting on the pellet grill for 2 hours, bagged up and SV for 12 hours at 134F. Chilled overnight in the refrigerator, moved to the freezer for an hour or so before running it through the meat slicer this morning. Almost no juice in the bag or shed when slicing.

Very supple, maybe even a bit too soft. I think I need to dial back the cook time a bit or use a larger cut of meat.

Nice smoke ring, boring photo otherwise.

Had a few friends over last night for the GoT finale, tried to think of something fitting to make for dinner so I ended on a leg of lamb. Went to the butcher and got a beautiful ~6lb leg, bigger than my stock pot so it gave me a legitimate excuse to break out the big tub. I made a spice rub similar to this, although I toasted all of them on a pan before using. I took out the leg, cut around the tip of the bone to make frenching it easier, scored the fat (although not as deep as it should have been) then rubbed it down with half the spice blend. I put a few dashes of liquid smoke in a big vac bag, put the leg in then sealed.

Cooked this for 25 hours at 131* then took it out, patted it down and loaded it up with the rest of the spice blend (althought I added black sesames and a little coffee for the last application, didn't want those flavors permeating but thought they would help make a good crust). I propped it up on a ball of foil and finished in the oven at 450* for 30 minutes.

This thing turned out stunning, better than I could have hoped for. I let it rest about 10 minutes then carved the leg, everything was cooked perfectly. Naturally once I was done I picked up the leg and gnawed at the meat left on the bone. I made a little sauce with the bag juice and some balsamic vinegar, but honestly it didn't need it. My friend's mother came over for dinner as well, she said she hadn't had lamb since she was 10 because she thought she hated it, but after trying this she said she must never had it cooked correctly, because she loved it and would have it again. Even my friend's 5yo daughter was eating it up. Definitely a success I hope to do again sometime soon
