Sous Vide Pork Chops with Tabbouleh Recipe
Sous vide pork chops are one of my all time favorite dishes. Here I serve them with a tabbouleh salad, which is an herbaceous salad from the Middle East. It is mainly parsley and mint based with some bulgur, tomato, and lemon juice.

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.
