Got the call from my Cousin on shift at the firehouse, "Come eat." I said, "Ok, I'll bring a salumi board."

Loins out of the Sous Vide bags, cut into 2" steaks ready for second sear on the ends...

The Roasted brussel sprouts with bacon, mushrooms, feta cheese and parmesan with just a touch of pepper jelly to tame down the saltiness.

Only thing missing was a really good bottle of wine, which would have happened had we not had this meal at the firehouse!

Oh, Sous vide @127*F for 3 hours after the first sear. Made the sauce in that pan.

Interesting - you sear twice meaning once before and once after sv?
Yes. The loins are in 6-8" sections which are seasoned then seared on all sides prior to putting into the sous Vide bag. Technically- you are not suppose to sous vide meat below 131*F.....BUT; you CAN if you sear the entire surface to pasteurize the surface (I will not entertain a debate on this. I had lengthy private discussions with chef jimmyj on this topic.). In the bag, In the bath for 3 hours. Then a rest for 10 minutes, then slice and sear the cut end. For me, venison is best at 127*F. So tender you could damn near cut it with a fork.

That's an excellent meal all the way around. I haven't roasted Brussel sprouts in a minute so I'll have to do something about that soon...

You know....I was never a huge fan of brussel sprouts. But trust me when I say that oven roasting does something to them and transforms the flavor...takes the bite out of them. Almost nutty flavor even. And with all the other stuff....the bacon, fetta, mushrooms, parmesan and a touch of pepper jelly...well, they really are good.

Thanks GonnaSmoke. It was a great meal. I definitely recommend oven roasting the sprouts!

I feel you on brussel sprouts, but over the last 6 weeks I've managed to make them palatable since starting keto. I steam mine for about 10-15 minutes, then liberally salt and pepper and sear them off in bacon grease and eat them with bacon. For me, I thought it was the steaming that killed the bitter but it might just be the searing. Roasting would be even easier.

I'm going to pick up some feta next time I go a groceryin' because, well, damn that sounds and looks good.
