Sous vide pepper steak with fennel and pomegranate salad

#NotQuiteNigella

The idea for this salad comes from Lorraine Elliott who is the premier Australian food blogger known as Not Quite Nigella

So how was your day? I had a pretty good one. I got a couple of walks in, participated in a teleconference for work, picked up new spectacles, and ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses.

Oven-cooked deboned chicken thigh on bread with fennel salad and NQN’s Thai dressing

Iron-clad oven-cooked pork belly with pressure cooker cabbage

So tonight I tried something a little different. Sometimes when I cook a strip of pork belly, in an effort to get some crackling, the muscle meat may become a little dry. To protect the muscle meat I tried tying metal knives on either side of the strip and hoping the metal would conduct sufficient heat to cook my pork flesh and prevent too much dehydration from the meaty surface.

It worked perfectly. The crackling was fantastic and the porky muscle meat was tender, juicy, and succulent.
