Lunch: Craving the flavors of the Lox Sliders from Urban, I decided to make my own version.
Open Faced Sandwich of Smoked Salmon, Spinach, and Fried Egg

Dinner: I served up sous vide rib eye steak (55°C) and 24 hour short ribs (57°C). The short ribs were tender, but I cannot say if they were more tender than the 3 hour short ribs from the night before. I wasn't sure if connective tissue had broken down into gelatin or not.

  • did you make your own DIY sous vide machine (read: cooler box + thermometer), or buy the commerical sous vide supreme?

  • The steak was in a DIY sous vide machine (not a cooler + thermometer, but a large rice cooker + PID controller with thermocouple) while the short ribs were cooked in a water bath with an immersion circulator.
