Morning Coffee. Learning The Mystery Of The Froth.

And finally, very similar to watching porn - remember - the instructional videos have ...

Marinated Skirt Steak. Recipe.

I talk a lot about wonders of sous vide cooking. Because I love it. This particular cut, however, is best grilled. I don't know why.

I jotted down some thoughts on why certain types of steaks are great when cooked sous vide. Here is the link to this incredibly educating brain dump.
