What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 3)


Recommended Posts

Just put some pork shoulder steaks in to SV, sprinkled with a bit of Penzey's Greek seasoning. Tomorrow, I'll take them out and smoke them for pre-Labor Day Sunday dinner with the kids. Thinking in terms of potatoes in cheese sauce, baked beans and fried okra on the side. Planning to make a banana pudding if I get up early enough, or get ambitious enough tonight.

 

Steaks, which are doggoned near a pound apiece, farm-raised, will go 12-16 hours at 145 and then get coated with a glaze of fig jam and balsamic vinegar to go in the smoker for 30-40 minutes or so. Should be primo. These people raise good pork.

Some advice, please.  Mr. Kim is making pork chops tonight.  We bought a big package of them from Costco.  Boneless loin 1 1/2 to 2-inches thick.  When he has taken his out, there will be 6 left.  I'd like to go ahead and "suck" them 2 at a time.  I don't know what I'll be doing with them, but most likely sous vide no matter what.  Should I just bung them in the bags as is?  Or should I preseason in some way that will work for lots of different preparations?  I hate the thought of sucking them now and again later if I need to season.  Seems wasteful.  Thanks!!!

I'd season with a bit of salt, black pepper and garlic and then bag 'em up :)

Rib eye roast, preseared and 8h @ 131F. Finished for 5 min in a hot convection oven at full blast ...

I was very surprised by the little amount of osmazome produced. It made for a very nice pan sauce with a bit of Philadelphia added. The beef was quite tender; next iteration will see only 6h.

Other than that, I liked it - will make my regular rotation for this cut.

Not that a ribeye roast is all that likely in the near future but I would still love to know how many kg it weighed.

As I am from Philadelphia I have to ask:  what is Philadelphia in context?

I have a sirloin tip roast - almost 4-inches thick and 4.3 lbs.  How do I handle this?  Thanks!!!  

 

ETA:  I should say that I did do some research and someone at amazingfoodmadeeasy.com suggested 131F for 13-48 hours (!!!!!).  As you can imagine, that timing has me stymied.

  I would start by looking at Duvel’s experience with his 1.45 kg/3lb rib roast.  He cooked it for eight hours at 131°F /55°C.  I suspect that even though your roast weighs a pound more his numbers would work reasonably well for you. If you want to get a little more well done then I would move the temperature up.  

 

Here is a link to his post.

As @Anna N mentioned, I recently did a rib eye roast @131F for 8h with presear. For my taste it was a bit too tender, so I'd aim for 6h next time.

 

I think that the weight doesn't matter as much as the dimensions of the roast. If you look at the pictures, my one was around 8-9 cm at the thinnest part. So that would be cooked to my liking at 6h ... With your 4 inches it should just take a little bit more, and given that sirloin tip roast might be a bit chewier than rib eye, I'd say 8h @131F should be a good starting point if you like the doneness you see in my pictures.

 

Although I wasn't a fan before I highly recommend the presear now. It helps to very quickly create a nice surface crust after the SV in the hot convection oven (less than 5 min), so it minimizes the overcooking of the outer layer ...

The local Shoprite is now selling Angus Prime brand beef, beef that is labeled USDA Prime.  I took home a nice looking ribeye.  Since I don't typically consume a whole steak in one sitting I dissected off the deckle.  Both portions are now bagged.

 

My question:  what temperature is optimum for deckle?

I recently did this with ribeye cap-only prime steaks from costco.

 

It depends--I like medium rare towards rare, so because these things are so good as-is, I did a simple 54C  for 60-90m give or take.

 

Shown here--hope this is not too red for you? But ohmigosh so tender and juicy..

 

(served with 85C fingerlings+carrots and a port-infused demi-glace sauce. Toppings are just Texas Toothpicks--yum yum)

Thank you.  I didn't want to prejudice the answer by saying I usually anova my ribeye at 55C.  Kenji has suggested that well marbled prime might be cooked a little higher.  Tonight's ribeye (minus of course the deckle) is about to come out of the bath at 55.5.

 

Intuition told me the deckle muscle might go higher still.  I could be wrong.  No rush, still time for many more opinions.

Did 55.5 work for you? Thoughts compared to the other cuts?

 

Sadly I seared the eye longer than optimum.  I think I'll stick to 55.0 which has worked well in the past.

 

Tonight I plan to cook the deckle but still undecided on the temperature.  There is a thread about cooking deckle but that was before sous vide ...at least before sous vide for me:

      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Olla podrida sous vide
      Origin
      Not rotten pot, but mighty or rich pot! Originated in 16th century Spain, olla poderida became olla podrida and was falsely translated into French as pot-pourri.
      Ingredients
      For two servings
      * 100g Brisket well marbled, cooked SV 48h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Pork meat well marbled, cooked SV 24h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Lamb chops without bone, cooked SV 4h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chicken breast, cooked SV 2h/58°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chorizo, sliced approximately 4mm †
      * 125g Chickpeas (garbanzos), soaked overnight in water †
      * 1 Onion chopped medium-fine †
      * ½ Savoy cabbage approx. 200g cut into pieces, thick leaf veins removed
      * ½ Celeriac approx. 200g quartered, sliced about 2mm
      * 2 Carrots sliced approximately 120g about 3mm
      * 1 Leek approximately 20cm / 100g sliced about 5mm
      * Extra virgin olive oil
      * Rice bran oil
      * Dried parsley qs, aromatic, black pepper
      † Beef, pork, lamb and chicken (or at least two kinds of meat) as well as chorizo, chickpeas and onions are mandatory ingredients, other vegetables vary according to desire and availability.
      Cooking
      Boil chickpeas in water for 30-60 min.
      Sauté onions in olive oil, add chorizo, continue sautéing, add chickpeas including its cooking water, add remaining vegetables, cover and cook to the desired softness, stir from time to time. If additional liquid is needed, you may add Sherry instead of water.
      Reduce heat. Season to taste. Add parsley.
      In a heavy skillet, sear the meat dice in just smoking hot rice bran oil (very high smoking point allows very quick sear, not overdoing the center of the meat).
      Sear one kind of meat at a time and transfer to the pan with the vegetables.

      Warm Onion Bavarois
      * 300g Sweet Onion purée
      * 250g Whole milk
      * 150g Whipping cream
      * 150g Chicken stock (or fresh vegetable nage, not stock cubes)
      * 3.5g Gellan gum
      * Seasoning
      Lightly grease with vegetable oil the moulds you intend to use (darioles, ramekins etc) and set to one side.
      In a pan (but not on the heat), whisk together all the ingredients.
      Place on a medium heat and whisk continuously, the mix will start to thicken slightly. Carry on whisking for a further 3-4 minutes when it has started to bubble. Then quickly pour into the greased moulds & chill.
      To reheat for serving, just place the ramekin in a pan of water and simmer gently for 8-10 mins.

      I have been buying country style bone-in ribs instead of bone-in pork chops. I season them with a rub very similar to Emeril's Rustic Rub spice rub and use a heaping tablespoon a rendered Nueskie's Applewood smoked bacon fat in the Food Saver vacumn bag. We have been using 2 ribs in the bag but have made the decision to switch to one to split. The meat is so rich and flavorful that we can easily split one and enjoy the meal even more.
      For a sauce, I cobbled together a sauce made with the juice of half a valencia orange, the pulp from 1 passion fruit, 1 cup pitted cherries (I used rainiers and bings in this one), 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1/2 cup white wine, juice from 1 lime, 2 tsp honey, garlic cloves crushed (I used roasted garlic that I keep in the fridge and 'crushed' them in my 'special' coffee grinder(2)) and 1 medium sized shallot. I used the same bacon fat to soften the shallots, then added the rest of the ingredients and let it reduce by about a third and then let it rest and reheated it when the pork ribs were done.
      I kept them in the sous vide at 141 from 10:00 AM until I got home from work at 7:00. It took another half hour +/- to change clothes, pour a glass of wine, reheat the sauce, make a salad, and heat up the garlic bread that I keep prepped in the freezer. After the bread was heated for about 8 minutes, I switched the oven to broil and took the bread out of the oven.
      I have started to experiment with using the broiler element to put color on the proteins that I have cooked in the sous vide. I have placed the oven rack on the third rack from the top, leave the door ajar while I bring the broiler element up to heat. I use my 10" stainless steel saute pan with a stainless steel rack in the pan for the protein. I open the sous vide package and pour the liquid that has accumulated in the bag into the bottom of the pan. I put the ribs, fattest side up on the rack and place the pan in the oven. I leave the door ajar and let them stay in there for 8 mnutes.
      That timing has worked extremely well for both the ribs and the chicken that I have done. I don't flip them yet and that hasn't been necessary for those 2 proteins. (I was much less successful with this formula for the flank steak which I think needs to be closer the heat source for less time).
      At any rate, the broiler is working well for color and the meat and sauce are great. The sauce also works very well with chicken. Haven't tried it yet with the salmon.
      Just wanted to share as I really love this sous vide thing and wanted to share.
      Sorry no photos yet. I haven't figured that part out yet but my husband promises to teach me.

      Utilization of meat leftovers from sous-vide cooking
      Sometimes when you buy a nice cut of meat, your eyes are bigger than your and your beloved's stomach. So what to do with the leftovers?
      In Tyrolia (Austria) they make a "Gröstl", in Solothurn (Switzerland) they make a "Gnusch", in the Seftigenamt (a region in the Swiss canton Berne) they make a "Gmüder", and we (Pedro and SWAMBO) make a varying concoct using ideas from all of the three. We call it "Gröstl", but it is not necessarily a typical Tyrolean Gröstl, and it is different each time, and we usually do not top it with a fried egg as they do in Austria.
      Ingredients

      All your meat leftovers
      Onion (compulsory)
      Any hard vegetable (we prefer celery stalks, or zucchini)
      Any salad (iceberg lettuce or endive/chicory or any other salad leaves, may contain carrot julienne)
      Fried potatoes, or alternatively sweetcorn kernels
      Sherry or wine or bouillon or the gravy you preserved from your last LTLT.cooked meat for simmering (I usually prefer Sherry)
      Eventually some cream (or crème fraîche)
      Salt, pepper, parsley, caraway seeds (typical for Tyrolean Gröstl), paprika, condiment (in Switzerland we use "Aromat" by Knorr, which contains sodium chloride, sodium glutamate, lactose, starch, yeast extract, vegetable fats, onions, spices, E552)'
      vegetable oil (I prefer olive oil)




      Mise en place

      cut your meat in small cubes or slices
      cut the onion(s) not too fine (place the first cut below your tongue to avoid tearing during cutting)
      cut the vegetables about 3-4 mm thick
      cut the salads to pieces smaller than 4 cm, distribute on the cutting board and season deliberately
      cut the potatoes to 1 cm cubes
      place 3 heavy skillets with ample oil on the stove

      Cooking

      in skillet 1, stir-fry the onions, add the hard vegetables still stir-frying, add salad, add sufficient liquid (Sherry or wine or bouillon or gravy) for simmering under a cover until soft. If desired, reduce heat and add some cream at the end.
      in skillet 2, stir-fry the potatoes until soft (in case of sweetcorn kernels, add to skillet 1 after stir-frying and use skillet 2 for skillet 3)
      in skillet 3, as soon as the vegetables and the potatoes are soft, sear the meat in just smoking oil for 30-60 seconds, then add to skillet 1

      Serving
      You may mix the potatoes with the vegetables and meat to make a rather typical Gröstl, or serve the fried potatoes separately; we prefer the latter, as the potatoes stay more crunchy.
      Do not forget to serve a glass of good dry red wine!
