My website has been similar to a child. A pain in the freaking ass. I wish I could tell you what the issues are, but I’m an idiot. And when it comes to computers or computer code or really, technology, I’m at a loss. I literally have no clue how to fix things.

And not having my website makes me feel lost. I love this thing. And who am I suppose to spill personal stories to if I can’t post every day? Oh that’s right…my friends…the people I coach…the homeless guys outside of our gym. Really, I have a lot of options, but none seem as great as the world wide web. Blabbing to unknown subjects is so freeing. Seriously. I think that’s why people have therapists.

Anywho, have you heard of the Sous Vide cooker? Well, they’re pricey so I never thought I would get to use one. And when I was given the opportunity to try one out for a cooking competition, I wasn’t sure I would actually even like using it. Specifically because I’m an incredibly lazy cook, so having to vacuum seal my meat before cooking it seems like a big chunk of wasteful time. Well, I was wrong. Because the meat turned out absolutely amazing. It also helped that I was using filet mignon from TX Bar Organics because they have some awesome quality meats. Ok, now I sound like a salesman. Anywho, even though the Sous Vide is incredibly expensive, it’s well worth it if you like perfectly cooked meats every time. You can’t screw it up, which is awesome.

    And apparently I did not refresh this page that has been open in my browser for two days to see that others have already asked this! 🙂 Oops.

    I had something similar in the Outter Banks on vacation over fresh tuna. I hate sea food but I loved it, thanks – now i can re-create a fish dish that I actually like!

  3. Celeste says:

    You won! You won! You won! You won! You won! You won! You won! You won! You won!

    and we helped.

    (BTW, What did you win? I’m hoping you get to keep the Sous Vide Supreme oven so you can share more of your creations with it. Yeah, I got a sous vide, too. See what you made me do?)

    Any suggestions for a coconut aminos substitute? I’m having a hard time getting some here in Aus.

    1. juli says:

      if you can find gluten free soy sauce such as liquid aminos, those would be great!

    I was looking at this recipe when I was reviewing the contest recipes and my husband walked behind me and said “I want that!” (little did he know I had already been planning to make it) I made it this past weekend for a special valentine’s/birthday dinner for him – we LOVED it! VERY tasty. I just enjoyed the last little bit of left-over sauce on some liver meatloaf that I made (I don’t like liver, but I love the sauce, so it made the meatloaf go down the hatch nicely!) Just wanted to share with you – nice job on putting together something different and tasty!

    This was delicious. Like, if my husband wouldn’t looked at me like an animal, I would have licked the plate clean….delicious.
