My Cook: Carnitas-Tamale Shepherd’s Pie

February 3, 2019

Shepherd’s Pie is a classic comfort dish hailing from the British Isles. This dish is usually made with ground lamb, carrots, and peas, and topped with mashed potatoes. We decided to switch things up and put a Mexican spin on this classic dish by combining Tamal de Cazuela (affectionately known as Tamale Pie) with Shepherd’s Pie. Pork carnitas and black beans take the place of the lamb and veggies, and instead of mashed potatoes we subbed in a..

My Cook: Carnitas Tacos

January 30, 2019

Pork shoulder and pork butt are tough cuts of meat that benefit from long, slow cooking times. In this recipe we utilize the Suvie slow cook setting to help break down the meat's muscle fiber, thereby producing tender, juicy pork. You can use either pork shoulder or pork butt in this recipe, however, pork butt will give richer and juicier results, due to the intramuscular fat that naturally exists in pork butt. (Pork butt, for the record,..

My Cook: Spicy Miso Tofu with Broccoli Rice

January 22, 2019

Tofu is the perfect blank canvas to showcase the power of sous vide cooking; tofu readily absorbs the marinade that it is exposed to during vacuum sealing and cooking. Cooking tofu in Suvie ensures that there is marinade throughout the tofu and not just on the surface. This delicious marinade is smoky, sweet, and savory thanks to chipotle peppers, brown sugar, and miso paste. It’s so delicious that we reserve half of the marinade to serve as a..

My Cook: Strip Steak with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Fries

January 21, 2019

Strip Steaks are prized by steakhouses and butchers for their balance of lean but tender meat. The muscle is located close to the back of the cow so it is not used very much, and therefore has a fine muscle texture. Sous vide cooking is a great way to bring out even more of that tenderness, and amp up the beefy flavor. Sweet potato fries are a cinch to make since Suvie will parboil the potatoes before they get crisped up under the broiler...

Nothing drives away the chill of winter like a big heaping portion of smoky, spicy, beefy Chili. Thanks to the Suvie Slow Cook mode you can let this Chili cook all day long for the best, most tender pieces of beef. We use whole pieces of chuck beef for a Texas-style chili that’s slow cooked with smoky chipotle pepper, tomato, cumin, lots of garlic, and kidney beans. If you want to dial back the heat you can omit the chipotle pepper, but feel..

My Cook: Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

January 16, 2019

Pasta bakes are comfort food that’s a great way to hide veggies. They’re also usually one of those one-pan meals that aren’t really one pan. All of the ingredients need to be cooked separately before they can be deliciously combined to become more than a sum of their parts. Luckily with Suvie you can cook all the ingredients you need for a pasta bake at the same time, and then use the same pans you cooked in for the final broiling step. Creamy..

The beauty of this dish is in its simplicity. There aren’t that many ingredients, but they all compliment each other so well that it just works. Plain and simple. The salmon is perfectly cooked for maximum tenderness and then topped with a pecan and butter crust that pairs with the richness of the fish.
