1st Sous Vide/BGE 50 hr. cook - Short Ribs (pic heavy)

I've been "Egging" for 13 years but I'm new to this whole Sous Vide thing. I was 1st introduced to Sous Vide cooking about 18 months ago and it took me all this time to wrap my head around this style of cooking. I finally took the plunge and bought a ChefSteps Joule. I wanted to make something different for my wife and mother-in-law for Valentines Day so I picked up a 8 lb. cryopack of Short Ribs from Restaurant Depot. Here are the ribs before and after I trimmed them up and broke them down into individual ribs.They were then dusted with Head Country rub, vacuumed sealed and them put into the sauna for 50 hrs. at 145 deg.
50 hrs. later the ribs are ready to come out. I took them out patted them dry and lightly sauced them with Head Country BBQ rub. My egg was hovering around 500 to sear and carmelize the outside of the ribs. 


All seared and plated with a Garlic Parmesan hassleback potato and bacon wrapped asparagus. The ribs were fork tender and a VERY bit hit with Mrs. RailRoader and my mother-in-law. This will definitely go in the rotation.
HThanks for looking!

    One of my favorite skis vide cooks.  Keep the juice from the bag separate the fat out and and cook down some red wine makes a beautiful gravy

    My friend that introduced me to Sous Vide cooking has the Anova. The Anova is a terrific device and does a wonderful job. The reason I went with the Joule was its slimmer and smaller footprint, the larger heating capacity and the magnetic base. The Anova does have on device temp and controls while the Joule totally relies on a app. For some this is a deal breaker. I have no issue just using an app since my iPhone or iPad is always within reach while home. The WIFI feature is great as I can check on the device while I'm not at home. I was fortunate to pick up the Joule for $179 when it was on sale during the end of Jan.
