Leftover sous vide pork cutlet salad

Leftover sous vide pork cutlet with cos lettuce salad. Gary Lum.

I cooked two pork cutlets on Sunday and left one in its vacuum bag in the refrigerator so I could enjoy it later in the week.

If you’re interested in sous vide cooking, I cooked the pork at 57 °C for 75 minutes.

Thought of the day

If I was the showrunner for LAW & ORDER I would have cast Jonathan Frakes as the love interest for Carolyn McCormick who played clinical/criminal psychologist Dr Elizabeth Olivet. Then Riker could have had an ongoing relationship with Minuet from Star Trek The Next Generation episode “11001001”.
