Been doing a lot of beef knuckle lately . Great cut . I get it from GFS . I break it into 3 sections . This one was a 4 pound hunk .
Put Canadian steak seasoning on the outside . No injection . In the MES 30 at 120 for 4 hours . Turned the heat to 160 and started some oak pellets in the 6 inch tube .
I skip the mail box with the 6 " and go right in the smoker . When the smoke ran out , I turned the temp to 200 . Took the IT to 130 in the thickest part .
Cooled down on the counter , then wrapped tight in plastic and in the fridge for 2 days at 36 degrees .
Fresh out of the smoker .

After the rest in the fridge .

Sliced up . Juicy and tender .

Covered up and back in fridge for supper that night .

Wasn't in a sandwich mood . Had a bottle of PF Chang Mongolian beef sauce .
Bag of steamer sprouts and a bell pepper / onion mix .
Nuked the veg to thaw , and get some of the water out . Seared the sprouts to get some color .
Added the peppers and onion . Gave them the same treatment .
PF Chang's and some teriyaki to the veg and let it cook . Missed the pic before I added the beef .
Beef added in ,

Mixed together .

I had some brown rice going in the rice cooker . First time for brown rice . Bag said 2 to 1 water to rice .
Ever see the episode of Green Acres , where Ebb uses the pancake batter to make a head gasket for the tractor ?
Since I don't have a tractor , the rice got tossed . To much water for the rice cooker . Be ok on the stove .
Had some stir fry noodles , used those instead .

Egg roll cooked in the air fryer . This is a great meal , and a nice change of pace .

My son usually makes the sauce , and the veg is usually fresh . The pre cooked beef , jarred sauce and frozen veg makes this easy to put together .
Hits the spot too .

Looks tasty.

Extra points for the Green Acres reference too! Didn't they use Lisa's pancake batter to fix a lot of things around the farm?

Thanks for looking . The trim makes great sticks .

Thank you bud . It's a good way to do it . Can use it for different meals . Did a Mississippi roast out of one part . Had this meal with enough left for sandwiches . Froze a 3 pound roast , and made sticks and kippered beef out of the trim .
I think the whole thing was $34.00

That's a delicious looking meal! I sure could eat a bowl or two of that. Looks like the noodles worked out better than the rice.

Very nicely done!
