I’M SORRY!!

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.

    For those that can’t lay down an obscene amount of money on a dedicated sous-vide machine….they do make water temp controllers for the crock pot. A little easier to stomach the price for an addon to a device you already use/have!!

    BTW, this recipe looks amazing!!!

    I would LOVE a sous vide. NomNomPaleo makes the most amazing things in hers. I wish they weren’t so damn expensive, or that I wasn’t so damn broke! haha

    I feel just as lost as you do when your website is down. I need my daily dose!

    Good luch

  4. Alyssa says:

    That meat is amazingly perfect…now I’m intrigued by the sous vide cooker! I’ve heard of them before but never thought to try one myself. You are a GREAT saleswoman!

  5. Stacy says:

    You and your recipes were greatly missed. If your trick was to get me to buy your cookbook, you have succeeded. Well played Juli, well played.

  6. Amy says:

    Missed you too! Glad the website it up and running for now, hopefully it won’t be too much of a poop in the future.

    I must admit I’m surprised so many people say the Sous Vide Supreme is “so damn expensive” or pricey. I’m afraid it may scare people away from even considering one. They are close to the price of a KitchenAid mixer. When you realize you can cook steaks as well (or better) than any restaurant at home (and perfect every time), and cook cheaper tough cuts of meat to deliciously tender results, you can skip a few meals out and it’s paid for.

    I can’t wait to make this while I still have a borrowed SousVide in my kitchen!

  9. Pam C says:

    Check out Bon appetite magazine September 2011 issue. There is a short article about how to do this without the expensive equipment. Now I have a reason to try it out.

  10. Kate C. says:

    If I don’t happen to have either a sous vide or a vacuum sealer, how would you make this so that it turns out as juicy and delicious as yours did? I really am not a fan of jerk seasoning on anything, but this recipe looks too good not to try. Should I just marinade it overnight in the sauce and then cook by usual grill or grill-pan method?
