8/18/2019 - National Fajita Day Dinner



If you want to take the day off from cooking, you can find National Fajita Day Deals at some restaurants.

https://www.newsweek.com/national-fa...border-1454527

I'll pass on fajitas and grill some steak tips. Sides will be roasted sweet potatoes and a house salad.

I'm going to sous vide a steak and sear it in a CI skillet. Baked potatoes and green beans will complete the meal.

We have some leftover grilled chicken, so we'll make quesadillas and Mexican street corn tonight.

We are on the same page. I am going to sous vide a ribeye, but sear it with my Searsall, instead of a pan. The ribeye is one of the USDA prime steaks I scored in the Manager's special section at Kroger a few weeks ago.

Another "Manager's Special" Score...

I wish I could get walleye down here. I had it a couple years ago in SD, and it was really good. Impossible to find anywhere near where I live.

We visited some friends for their annual BBQ. I had some Italian sausages, a hamburger patty, some Caesar salad, and crudités with a cheese and spinach dip. I also had sangria. Stirling had hot dogs, sausages on buns, Caesar salad, pasta salad, potato salad, chocolate cake, and water melon, as well as sangria. It was all yummy and we had a great time.

I'm always amazed how well Sous Vide works for a tri tip. The cook for the odd triangle cut of beef is always perfect throughout. Again, it was finished on "Wilma" the searing side burner of the gas grill. Yabba Dabba Doo...

Sides were :
Corn cut off the cob, bacon fried with red bell pepper and fresh chives
Leftover marinated grilled veggies
Chimichurri sauce for the meat

I have never cooked tri-tip sous vide. I've never cooked it at all. You just don't see that cut of beef in stores in Texas. I have eaten tri-tip cooked Santa Maria style in California. But, it just isn't stocked in stores here.

How long do you cook it in the water bath? Is it a long, slow cook?
