Beef flank steak cooked sous vide for 2 hours @ 126.5F then spent 1 minute per side directly on the coals and rested under foil for 7 minutes.  The sides were pickled beets and chive butter sautéed potatoes.

Dessert was chocolate chips cookies baked on the egg.

    That looks great!  Did you do the pickled beets yourself?

    Nice job.

    Man that looks good!  I make my own pickled beets all the time.  I've never bought in to the "organic" vegetables philosophy, but every time I buy the organic fresh beets, I notice they're about 10 times darker red and taste much better.  So now I pay extra and get the organic.

    It's the hottest part of the fire.

    Many varieties of beets are available now. We even have two colors varieties at a local market. It makes for a nice presentation when entertaining and you want a wow factor.

    The ones we had yesterday were made with chai tea instead of pickling spices.

    Good question. Taste? Quick sear?

    When cooking sous vide, the piece of meat is already cooked and extremely moist. Because it is so moist, it is difficult to get a good sear on the regular grate without overcooking the meat.

    I noticed golden beets last time I was at The Fresh Market. 

    I boil them whole, skin on, for about 1-1.5 hours in brine.   Let them cool down. Skin rubs off under water.  Chop them into bite sized slices and pickle.  I used red-eye rub on my last batch...gave one jar to my neighbor who's a pickled-food freak, and he said they were the best pickled beets he's ever had.

    Just got back from the store...picked up 4 or 5 pounds of fresh beets to start a new batch.  The redeye seasoning (DP) was so good in the beets, I'm gonna do it again.  And apple cider vinegar...
