Grass Fed Sous Vide Beef Brisket

I have a new episode of “husband cooked food” for you all today: Grass Fed Sous Vide Beef Brisket. Ever since we got the Nomiku Sous Vide, my husband has fallen seriously in love with it. It is a love affair between a man and his machine. A machine that cooks brisket perfectly. What more could a man want? According to my husband, a glass of bourbon or rye to go with that perfectly cooked sous vide beef brisket.

Sous Vide is a great way to slow cook beef brisket. My husband has tried several other methods; slow cooking in the oven, in the smoker, on the grill, and he has found that slow cooking via the sous vide method and then finishing on the grill leads to medium rare beef brisket perfection. Just the way he likes it.  It is also one of the easiest and most consistent methods of cooking any cut of meat especially a tougher cut like brisket.

Gluten Free Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Pancakes

Happy National Blueberry Pancake day!!!  I am helping Driscoll’s celebrate this fabulous food holiday with my Gluten Free Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Pancakes. If I HAD to choose one food I could eat for the rest of my life, it would be breakfast. Yeah ok so that isn’t ONE food, but a category. But still. Breakfast is awesome. Especially when blueberry pancakes are involved. Thanks to Driscoll’s Berries for sponsoring this post.

Gluten Free Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Pancakes Pineappleandcoconut.com #glutenfree

I probably make pancakes for dinner more than I do for breakfast. Since my kids school schedule is SO EARLY this year there is no way I am waking at 5 am to make pancakes or waffles. I save those for the weekend, during the week we do a lot of smoothies. Easy to make, kids love them. But once in awhile during the week when I don’t really feel like cooking, it’s breakfast for dinner time. Brinner!

Gluten Free Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Pancakes Pineappleandcoconut.com #glutenfreeThere are so many two food combinations in culinary world that work so well together; peanut butter and chocolate, bourbon and salted caramel, coffee and kahlua, pineapple and coconut, eggs and bacon,  lemons and blueberries, I could go on and on.  This combo is so good for so many reasons. Regular lemons and blueberries are good, but meyer lemons and blueberries? AHhhhhhhhmazing. I have made muffins with this combo, a layer cake, and now these pancakes. By far the best pancakes I have made yet.
