Dinner Back at Home: Smoked Pork Chop, Green Beans, and Braised Cabbage

Pin It

For my first meal back home, I heated up a frozen Fatted Calf smoked pork chop in my SousVide Supreme (set at 130 F) for 30 minutes. While the chop heated in the bath, I nuked some leftover braised cabbage and some frozen green beans and butter which I later seasoned with salt and Dukka.

I took the chop out of the vacuum pack, dried it off, and seared it in my cast iron skillet in some melted lard.

Here’s my final plate (Fitbomb and I split the chop):

Maybe I’m nuts, but I thought smoked pork chops were already cooked. That’s why I only set my SousVide Supreme to 130 F. Our chop, post-searing, was really rare, especially right near the bone. When I heat up our last chop in the freezer, I’m gonna set the water bath to 140  F before I sear it.

How’d it taste? Nice and smoky with hints of hard cider.
