    Hey, you stole our weather! It's been close to that here for the last 2 weeks, but much cooler today. The beef looks eggceptional. We are having a party for the Daytona 500 and I am thinking of making Italian beef. Was wondering how far in advance I could make it, seeing yours done a week ahead lets me know. Thanks!

    I'll chill it for a day or two before running it through the slicer then vac seal

    Looks great! Do you freeze? Do you reheat the bags in boiling water? Maybe I should just come to that party & check it out :)

    Looking good down there Pat. ;) 85 sure looks warm.

    25 was nice for a day on the slopes with the boys. :)
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
    Susan let me know and I'll clear a landing area for you
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
    yea Adam I guess 85 on the slopes wouldn't have been a good thing :ermm: :laugh:
  • Looking good, Pat. Those look like some premium drippings. Glad to hear the brisket was so good. Your guests are going to be in beef heaven.

    Susan I'll toss the brisket in the freezer and reheat like the one in Ocala. The sirloin I'll reheat with the peppers and onions and it should look like this


    But maybe you should head down just to make sure B)
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
    Faith,, where did you find the "good" peppers? I haven't had much luck around here
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
    Maybe :blush: :blush: :laugh: :laugh:

    There was a tendon there that I cut out

    Thats my story and I'm sticking to it :whistle:
  • I can taste it now! I am sure you did some quality control test :laugh:
  • so you dusted the whole thing with herbs and THEN cut the tendon out???

  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
