Joule From ChefSteps! Basic Pork Chop Recipe!!! Sous Vide!!!



 

I pre-ordered Joule awhile back and it finally arrived!   What is Joule you might ask? Well its the new Sous Vide machine from ChefSteps!  Its essentially a water heater and circulation device.  Joule allows you to cook food immersed in water (in a zip lock bag or vacuum bag) to a tenderness and keep that food at that state for long periods of time without fear of over or under cooking the food.  


(cooked pork chop per their recipe so juicy!)

Another cool aspect is that you can pair the device with your phone (app is android and ios), your wi-fi router, as well as an Amazon Echo or Dot (for some voice control) to cook/monitor/start/stop/change temps/set timers from anywhere you have an internet connection.  ChefSteps app(android and apple) takes the calculations out of Sous Vide so its a simple process of selecting the doneness, visually, within the app and then just hit GO!

Check out the two little videos snippets to see Joule in operation:





I followed ChefSteps recipe for both the pork and the carrots from here:

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit user tylercap posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland.

I had to give the boiling crab only one star this time out because frankly they missed the mark on a number of the areas I judge a establishment upon.  Find out more on why I don't recommend going to The Boiling Crab...

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included)
People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.  
OMG! No frick'n way!!!  
No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.   
Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy good.  The best donut was the one l…
