Sous Vide Chuck Roast with Mushroom Sauce

I’ve been meaning to try a long-cook sous vide roast for a while, but I didn’t want to spend too much money in case it didn’t turn out the way I wanted to. This chuck roast was about $10 for a little over 2 lbs of meat, which is about $1.25 per serving – not…

Sous Vide Lamb Chops

Lamb used to be my favorite meat, but now that I’m older I don’t love it as much as I used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still think it’s delicious, I just don’t eat it as much anymore and I don’t crave it as much as I’ll crave a good steak. And yes, this…

Sous Vide Strip Steak & Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter

I’d heard from a friend that chips made from celery root are good, but I decided to…

Tri-Tip with Roasted Potatoes in Herb Butter & Roasted Broccoli

Here’s my first food post! I went to Trader Joe’s the other day because I was craving the mochi ice cream that they sell and ended up picking up some other food as well, including some tri-tip. It’s not commonly found in other stores, but as a native Californian, it’s an important part of my…
