Bourbon glazed sous vide salmon2

Bourbon Glazed Sous Vide Salmon with Blue Grits Recipe

This particular dish is sort of a mashup of my past and my present. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, salmon is plentiful and a large staple of your diet. Living in the South now, and having access to world class grits, it was inevitable that eventually they met. Shrimp and grits is one of my all-time favorite meals, so salmon wasn't that far off my radar when it came time to decide how to proceed with this dish.

Pressure Cooked Turkey Stock Recipe

Homemade pressure cooked turkey stock is a great way to add flavor and body to many different dishes. Now that I almost always sous vide my turkey instead of roasting it, making a turkey stock ahead of time and using it for gravy is really important.

Pressure Cooker Brisket Peppered Beef Recipe

The other day I was up for some Chinese food but I didn't feel like ordering the greasy, starchy takeout from around the corner so I decided to make some myself. I had some extra brisket in the freezer that I wanted to use up so I went for a pressure cooked version of Chinese Peppered Beef.

Sous vide ribeye morel scapes plated

Sous Vide Ribeye Recipe with Morels and Garlic Scapes

Late spring is always a favorite time of year to cook for me because of all the unique ingredients you can find. At the store this week I came across fresh morel mushrooms and garlic scapes. These are both ingredients you can usually only find in spring, especially in the New York area, so I jumped at the chance to get them. I ended up pairing them with a great sous vide ribeye steak.

Chilled cantaloupe soup

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup with Pea Shoots

At this time of cantaloupe is just starting to come into season. They are tender and sweet and barely resemble the bland and watery winter versions. The local farmers market recently had some "Sugar Kiss" melons that I couldn't resist.

Around Christmas time many people will prepare ham or turkey but around our house we've always done a prime rib roast for dinner.

Here our sous vide recipe for the classic prime rib roast.

Sous vide brisket cranberry bbq sauce

Sous Vide Brisket Recipe with Cranberry BBQ Sauce

Even though cranberries are a staple for Thanksgiving sauces they are often overlooked for more traditional sauces. Their combination of tartness and mild fruitiness is a great complement to many BBQ sauces. I like to serve this BBQ on a smoked and sous vided brisket.

Sous Vide Chicken Breast Recipe with Bulgur Salad and Za'atar Onions

This year I'm trying to explore some new flavors I usually don't use in my cooking. For this recipe I go in a Middle Eastern direction and combine a sous vide chicken breast with some za'atar onions and a bulgur wheat and pomegranate salad. It's a really flavorful but light dish with lots of different textures and tastes.

Sous vide sirloin roasted vegetables

Sous Vide Sirloin Steak Recipe with Roasted Root Vegetables

I was looking for a hearty, but easy, weekday meal so I decided to do a sous vide sirloin steak with roasted root vegetables. Sous vide sirloin steak is one of my favorite cuts to eat. It is on the leaner side but still has enough marbling to make it flavorful without being too fatty. It's also much less expensive than a New York strip or a rib steak, making it more accessible for a weekday meal.
