Finally, got to cook something! Major deadline over yesterday, so back to egging after a long hiatus. First I cracked open one of these:
Haven't had much time to play with the Demi i bought recently, so I figured it was about time. Bought some kind of bacon wrapped filet thingy from HEB since it was already vacuum packed. Tossed it in at 133°F for about 75 mins.
Dinner got a late start, so I had to hustle. Started the meat in the demi, 2 sweet potatoes in the oven, fired up the mini and ran around doing some chores. An hour or so later, I pulled the meat out and added Mickey's coffee rub.
Somehow this snuck in:
Mini was chugging along, despite not having been cleaned in a while.
Threw SWMBO's filet on first to cook a little longer (she's off med-rare meat for now). Flipped it and let it go for about a minute for so. Let hers rest then put mine on for about 30 secs and flipped it. Forgot my thermapen inside, so didn't check the IT. This is where I goofed a little.
The sweet potatoes were rubbed with EVOO and DP Cowlick, in the oven @ 400°F x 1hr, while I was doing the other stuff. Mashed them, and plated with leftover stir-fryish veggies.
Made a sauce out of the juice form the meat after pulling from the SV, some rub, and the drippings from the sweet potato foil packet. My meat was med-rare in one half, almost med in the other, but very tasty. SWMBO enjoyed hers as well. Once she gets back to eating med-rare meat, I think the SV will live up to its potential. I do need to tinker with it some more and get the hang of it.
The evening was capped off with an old favorite:
