They were tender and sliced nicely. I think they came pretty close! 



Ed, Sous Vide would give you a start cooking with a rib that is still pink, but tender. All you need to do is use you rub, but, don't use as much, less is more in Sous vide.  Heat Seal the short ribs in bags, put into a 132 Degree water bath and set your calendar for 3 days. When Amar does his Pork Belly Sous Vide, he does it low and slow. He then hits it with a dry heat to crisp it up as needed.

That's what I need to figure out, how to get a 132 degree water bath without having to buy a $400 sous vide bath.

Ed, you don't want to go lower than 132 degrees, but, you can go higher. Check to see what your crock pot temp is at it's lowest setting. There really isn't anything wrong with the way your doing it, this is just a different process. In other words, if your happy with the results your getting now, it's a winner.

I think this review will help. If you need a larger pot it would also come in handy for a stock pot.

If I were you I'd keep on doin what you're doin.......I especially like the smoke ring.  Damn, they sure look tasty!    I'm not knocking the sous vide thing (3 days?) or the crock pot, but those short ribs look pretty much like perfection.

Lisa, the only time you need to worry about cooking something for 3days is when you only have two days to live! The point of this is more like cooking things when you have time, then finish when needed. The short ribs can be cooked Sous Vide during the week and smoked for three or four hours on the weekend when needed. They can also be frozen for future use. It's all about planning for future use, it works for me when no one in my house ever plans, they want it now! Well Now, that doesn't happen with Sous Vide, but, it does if I plan.

Right now, all dinners are being planned around the Penguins/Blue Jackets play-off games.  Tomorrow night I'm planning on handing MH a big box of tissues when the Pens win!

Re:What's For Dinner TONIGHT...??? 2014/04/27 20:06:21 (permalink)
So we had friends over today for a late lunch early dinner. I was up at 7AM making a rub with Penzey's Bicentennial Seasoning and Rubbed Sage. AT 8AM, the boneless pork loin went into the smoker to be smoked over red oak.

 
At noontime I wrapped it in foil with a little apple juice and put it back on. An hour later I unwrapped it again and coated it with a homemade orange marmalade glaze. Another hour in the smoker and it came out like this:

 

 
It carved up like this----see the smoke ring?

 
I served it with mashed sweet potatoes and an applesauce that I made from fresh Fuji apples.

 
Our guests enjoyed it!

No, I doubt it would get a smoke ring would work that way.

Looks like Columbus might have the home rink advantage. Will MH have you eat breakfast at Waffle House the next morning if the Penguins lose today?

  I placed the kugel on the plate very slowly and carefully just in case.

Last night we had crabcakes that MH ordered from G&M in Maryland (accompanied by fried green tomatoes and coleslaw).  The picture does not do the crabcakes justice.......I tried to get a close-up but with the flash and the white plate it just didn't work......and I wasn't going to fool around, I wanted to dig in!  It was, without a doubt, the best crabcake I've ever had.  It's an 8 oz. cake with seasoning and virtually no filler.

Yeah, the crabcake was good. Heck -- it was fantastic. But look at those fried green tomatoes, and the slaw. Both were extraordinary.

Oh, Yum!  Lisa, that meal looks luscious!
 
I had 3 pieces of dark chicken and a side of Asian inspired slaw at California Chicken Cafe.
 
Always good, prepration and taste always consistent... but the chicken pieces used to be larger.

I want ham, and crab cakes, and BBQ tenderloin, and...well, everything really. All of it looks really good!
 
Instead, I made minced collops with steel cut oats, green beans on the side.

Thanks, MH! I'm still experimenting with it, because the traditional Scottish recipe is pretty bland. I'm thinking it can't suffer from an addition of bacon.
 
My AHL Griffins lost Wednesday night forcing a Game 4 tonight, so I'm going to that. On the way there (or perhaps afterward, depending on time) I'm heading to the by-the-slice pizza place around the corner. When I'm working I get sick of eating there, but it's been over six months since I've been in so I want it. People say, "It's just pizza". Yeah, no. It's amazing pizza, and two slices with a soda fills me up for hours.
