Cleaned out the freezer recently and came across these beauties, I knew they were in there, but had not seen them in a while. Other than the marks from the foodsaver bags, they seemed like the survived their naps just fine.

Also had a nice thick Berkshire chop that I took out frozen. Hard to tell by the pic, but this one chop weighed a pound and a half. Hit this one with a little salt and vac packed then into the sous vide @ 140. I didn't note the time, but it was in there approx. 6 hours.

Hit the steaks with some EVOO and kosher salt and got them cooking indirect until the IT was around 110. Pulled the chop out of the bath, dried it off, hit is with some salt and pepper then out to the grill to meat up with the steaks.

That chop was giving up so much fat that flare ups were a constant battle.

My wife made a loaf of bread to go with it. It was our only side dish. :mrgreen:

The chop got a bit dark, but steaks came out looking nice.

Gave them all about a 10 minute rest and then cut.

I wish the pic did the flavor of this chop justice. I love berkshire pork and the fat on this one was so full of flavor.

The steaks were so big that I just cut them in half to cover the family of four. No one complained.

Pretty pleased with how they turned out. Bread, meat, and bourbon......pretty much a perfect meal.

I think I've taught you everything I can Grasshopper.

It's time you branch out on your own.

That bread looks killer.

Thanks for the posts.

I think I need to dig through your freezer. Or better yet just eat whatever you find and cook - very nicely done!
