Cooked these in a sous vide, and then seared in a CI pan on the MMX whilst the pork chops were resting. The pork chops had been cooked with DP Bayou-ish, the combo of flavours was superb. Or, the bomb, depending on where you are in the world. Full recipe here:

Arty shot of cooked carrots, SWMBO does like these:


Searing in the CI pan, the jus reduces and forms the glaze:


I froze the paste so it wouldn't get sucked into the vacuum sealer:


Served with pork chops and DP Bayou-ish:


Thanks for looking!

    Had these last night with some duck breast rubbed with DP Peking ... oh hello, this was superb, wish I could edit the title of the OP. The cumin was a perfect match for the spicing of the rub. It didn't need the coriander though. No pics but we'll be doing this again, I think with a marinade for the duck using the rub.

    @Nature Boy nice going with the Peking!

    Good eats right there.

    I've found that there is no such thing as too much cumin (or garlic) in any thing. Coriander is a different matter - it has a certain peppery heat that  is not so great if you overdo it.

    And I don't know why I STILL haven't really tried SV veg. Must remedy that. Thanks for the nudge :)

    Cumin goes well with carrots. Mixed carrot / potato mash with cumin is lovely.

    Nice looking meal and great pics.  Those packages of carrots and paste is how I do them too.  They freeze well - so you can prep a bunch at a time like that.

    Cheers folks.

    @Eoin that sounds interesting, going to give that a whirl.

    @caliking you have a sous vide? If not, anova are discounting their first gen model very heavily, it's less than half price in the UK at the moment.
