Sous Vide Pork Scallops with Lemons and Capers


Sous Vide Pork Scallops with Lemons and Capers Sous Vide Pork Scallops with Lemons and Capers

I’m a sucker for deals on meat, no matter what cut you end up with. Because with a sous vide circulator, you can make delicious meals with even the cheapest of cuts. In this case, I had a couple of boneless pork loins, each in a very different shape and thickness. I cut and pounded the meat into similar-sized portions, spiced and bagged, then let the sous vide do its magic. After a relatively short bath, a quick sear and gravy will give you a restaurant-worthy dish. Pair it with a quick pressure-cooked risotto and peas side, and you’ve got a meal!

Down to business:

Sous Vide Pork Scallops with Lemons and Capers
Slightly adapted from Foodiecrush

3/4 pound boneless pork
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh sage leaves, one per slice
4 tablespoons butter, divided
2 teaspoons oil, preferably high-heat such as grapeseed

Herbed Meatballs and Stuffed Onions with Cherries

Tasty Eats

Herbed Meatballs and Stuffed Onions with Cherries Ronit PensoMeatballs cooked with cherries, are known in the Persian, Bukharin and Georgian cuisines. Stuffed onions are also known in these cuisines, and in the Turkish and Greek ones as well. In the following dish, I took the liberty of combining all the above into a free-style version, while using different seasoning and mixing the two dishes in the same pot.
The result was very tasty; the two dishes complemented each other, and having both dishes in one pot made for easy entertaining. The fact that the dish tastes even better after a day in the fridge, made it even more entertaining-friendly.  Try it and enjoy.

* As with any ground meats, I recommend grinding it at home. This way you have full control over the freshness and type of meat you’re using.
* I’ve used a mixture of ground beef shoulder and center cut shank, with the bone marrow…

Daily Post-Tenacious

Just to be in your arms.

To see your face with that big smile,

that everybody for miles can see.

With your eyes that are splendid as anyone might imagine.

Will you be the same way with me?

I figure we should keep a watch out.

What’s more, what will be, will be. Will

you have the tolerance or will you

end up being tenacious?

Will you be benevolent as a bloom,

Since where it counts you know

my adoration is genuine power!
