  1. Lemonade cocktail

    Mix it with an equal part of lager – Sam Adams Boston lager is my choice.
  2. LaBan Read your mind, ribkind! http://www.philly.com/philly/food/300868701.html
  3. Corned Beef, Sous Vide

    Your pre-soak seems like a good idea. I'll try it next time.
  4. We're planning a visit to http://www.simeonemuseum.org in Southwest Phila. Are there any good spots for lunch nearby, or should we head up to Passyunk Ave.? We could also return home (Millville, NJ) via the Como Barry Bridge. Are there any spots near that route? We enjoy all types of food, so anything from good bar food on up will do.
  5. What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 1)

    ElsieD, I have to try those ham hocks. Last night we had a brisket that I corned for 7 days and cooked sous vide at 180ºF for 10 hours. After cooking, I refrigerated it overnight. Before serving, I sliced it and put it in a baking dish, added some juices from the bag and some water, covered it with foil and warmed it up. Best I ever ate.

  7. My results with turkey legs have been uneven. I've used Baldwin's and Mod. Cuis. At Home's recipes. I think it's been due to the quality of the legs. Adding stock is the next experiment. The breasts we had at T'giving were the best I've ever eaten. I used Mod. Cuis. At Home's recipe with the apple juice and milk brine at 133ºF. I usually pass up turkey breast, but not this time.
  8. I'm with you. I would however make an unsalted pork stock, freeze it in cubes and then bag it with the slices. I'd also look into going as low as possible with the temp. When I cook thin slices of country ham for biscuits, I just want them hot. If I let them get too hot, they turn to leather. I've also included stock when doing pork shoulder or beef brisket with much better results. The next time I sous vide turkey legs, some turkey stock is going in the bags.
  9. Christmas cooking 2013

    If you'd like to try one more time, there's a lot of good info here: http://www.seriouseats.com/2013/12/the-food-lab-redux-perfect-prime-rib-for-the-holidays.html The most important thing is to get a good piece of meat. That's not easy or cheap.

    I should have mentioned that I do know I could use beef stock to replace the chicken stock. I'm just hoping for some different ideas.
  11. Christmas cooking 2013

    I'd like to make the Simplified Jus Gras for our rib roast, but I feel that I should use something other than chicken stock. Any ideas?
  12. I froze several from 7/4. Here they are reheated and broiled with Hunan Smokehut Grilling Sauce from House Tsang.
  13. Well, I went ahead with the original vacuum wrap. 133ºF for 72 hours. Chipotle Honey glaze and broiled. Absolutely the best beef we have ever had.
  14. I've ordered & received some short ribs from Lafrieda http://lafrieda.com . Can I sous vide them in them in the vacuum packaging that they came in? I'll remove the stick-on label. Bill
