Sous Vide Pork Chops with Bulgur and Vegetables Recipe

Sometimes I'm just looking for a quick and easy meal, and this sous vide pork chop, grain and vegetable bowl is amazing. It's light, easy to put together, and the orange vinaigrette gives it an amazing brightness. It's the perfect meal to end a busy day.

I like to sous vide my pork chop at 140°F (60°C) for 2 to 3 hours until heated through and pasteurized, though you can go higher or lower to meet your own preferences. I usually cut the pork chops into pieces, but feel free to leave them whole for a more dramatic presentation.

When I want a special piece of meat there are a few good butchers in my area, but I've also been enjoying the super flavorful pork from Snake River Farms. I also enjoy trying the different ranchers that Crowd Cow has available.

You can use any vegetables in this you like, I'm partial to broccoli, red pepper, carrots and summer squash, but you can mix and match with whatever you have on hand.

This meal also works great as part of sous vide food prep. Just cook the pork when you have time earlier in the week, then use the sous vide, chill, reheat method. You can quickly reheat it along with any vegetables you have precooked in about 15 minutes in a saute pan.
