Awesome work there Ben, thanks for the detail. I'm still figuring out the smoked onion proportions myself too.

What you say about pork chops kind of mirrors my experiences too. I had always struggled with getting them right until I bought an SV cooker.

Corned beef yesterday, 180* for 10 hours, came out perfect. I didn't have time to let it rest too much before slicing it up for sliders, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing

Made Sriracha Buttered Shrimp tonight with some (really large) fresh black tiger shrimp from Costco (8-10 per pound):

Shrimp and sauce before sous vide:


After sous vide:


Ready to serve:


Really good! We did not have any rice or pasta with this and it was almost too spicy for my wife she really wanted a little rice.

Also, the sauce might overpower smaller shrimp.

Tried this again over the weekend but let it rest for about 20 minutes before slicing, it was perfect, only ever cooking corned beef this way now. No spices or anything added, just the brisket cooked in the brine

I get it from my butcher, they come vac packed in brine but no other spice packets or anything, 4-5lb cuts. They're labelled as "Corned Beef Brisket Ready to Cook"

Default Re: Sous vide

I re-bagged it, I didn't really trust the seal on the package they used in such high temperatures. I've cooked steaks in the retail packaging from costco and other big places before, but they look a lot more sturdy than this place. In hind sight I should have taken their whole package and put it in a vac bag rather than take the brisket out, I had way too much trouble getting the bag to seal with the wet brine in it, but I got there eventually

I did the same yesterday. When it was done I dried it well then mixed a half cup of brown sugar, quarter cup of molasses, teaspoon of dried mustard and half a cup of bourbon. Mixed it up and glazed the hot beef and popped it into a hot oven to crust it up.

Simply the best corned beef of my life.

No pictures, but I want to make sure any newcomers understand, PORK LOIN is my favorite use of sous vide hands down.

Did a simple bbq rub tonight, 3 hours at 135, and seared off. The best pork loin you'll ever have.

We did boneless chicken thighs last night. Poured half a bottle of BBQ sauce in the bag, set sous vide at 160 for 4 hours. Seared them off in a cast iron pan afterwards until a bit charred. Really good!

Did a tri-tip in the sous vide today, but its different than I have done before. Before moving, I would use a Cusinart to make my marinade (onions, garlic, salt, black pepper, red pepper, oil, soy sauce, etc.).

We no longer have a food processor, so I made up a new (completely different) marinade:

1 bottle of Cindy's Kitchen Tangerine Vinaigrette
1 chopped red onion
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp pepper

Also, we used to get our tri-tip at Costco (in Oregon), but the Costco's out here in Florida do not carry it. We found a 3 lb. tri-tip at Whole Foods on Sunday and used that.

Marinated in the vacuum bag for about 24 hours and cooked for 6.5 hours at 130 degrees:



It came out perfect! Tasted great -- the hint of citrus was really nice along with the garlic and onion. Just the right amount of salt too!

Looking good Michael! Love some SV tri tip, was a favorite for a while getting it pre-marinated from costco

Putting a few pounds of beef short ribs in the SV for a 48 hour cook tonight, looking forward to dinner friday

Default Re: Sous vide

Made the beef short ribs last week, following this recipe almost exactly. They were good, especially with the red wine glaze, but overall I thought I'd be a little more impressed with the tenderness, they were easy to chew but still needed a steak knife, maybe I had unrealistic expectations hoping to only need a fork. I did a little looking around after and maybe 48 hours wasn't enough, I see some recipes calling for 72. I'll give them another shot some time in the future using 72 hours, but for now I'll stick with the instant pot when cooking up short ribs (or a smoker if I had access to one)
