    With a sous vide it doesn't dry out and toughen up when seared for a minute on each side. It just stays moist and tender. Although 136 degrees is too done for me. I sit at 122 degrees for however long I can resist not eating, coat with salt and fresh crushed pepper and sear for a minute as well.

    on a high heat skillet at 1 minute each side you would definitely get a nice quarter inch ring of brown over cooked meat.

    You should purchase one and find out yourself then.

    So can I be in the club?

    I can't wait to throw some seasoning in on some fajitas, vacuum seal them, sous vide them, and then finish them on the grill. I'm talking bulk fajitas baby!!!

    +1 Love comfort food. On the east coast that's diner food. Chicken soup or Beef and Barley soup. Pot roast. Meatloaf. Macaroni and Cheese. Mixed vegetables. Pie ala Mode.

    I like a good crust and the control of the sous vide hitting my desired flavor every time.

    any place that does a max-level hamburger, pizza or burrito. I know that’s cheesy and simple but it’s true. Pizza especially, that’s prob #1 for me if I have to answer with a gun to my head.

    Steak au poivre- cream/cognac sauce on a peppercorn crusted filet mignon.
    Mom’s Gumbo- chicken, andouille, shrimp and okra, homemade roux
    Soups- pho and Ramen, pazole and plain ol veggie soup
    My own chicken Alfredo- I know that’s a little self serving (pun intended) but for whatever reason restaurants make weird Alfredo sauce. I make the best Alfredo sauce you’ve ever had, according to many tastebuds
    Salsa- Good golly. Also make a decent salsa but never won any prizes.

    Any food that deeply resonates another person’s culture is cool too. I love food but it’s also a good way to break down walls. And if something is gross, at least you tried it.

    I cook anything and everything. I just made about six dozen tamales earlier today (leftover filling that I had in the freezer since the week before Christmas). There's a few ethnic foods that I'd rather make myself than have at any place in Houston, but making GOOD pizza, a GOOD hamburger, and GOOD French Fries can be some of the most difficult challenges there are for a home chef.

    And messy as well. Flour everywhere from tossing your own dough and no brick oven? Oil splatter and house smelling like grease? NoThankYouuuu!

    My favorite food isn't one that I am able to eat all the time. So it is different than my favorite 'go-to' food.

    My favorite food is Alaskan King Crab Legs. Without a doubt that is the best food there is. I prefer it to lobster, steak, anything else at all.

    My favorite 'go-to' food is probably smoked brisket.

    I can do a pretty decent pizza, usually put leftovers on em but it’s a mess indeed. Well said though, French fries aren’t even worth doing with a burger store on every corner
