Umami Bites ~ We Have Some of Our Favorite Super Bowl Eats, Make Plump & Juicy Pork Chops, and Devour a Sublime Culinary Indulgence

Sous Vide Pork Chops

We have a couple of treats for you in this Umami Bites before we dive into some of our favorite Super Bowl eats. 

If you love plump juicy pork chops that are so tender you can almost cut them with your fork check out our new Guide to Cooking Sous Vide Pork Chops. It has everything you need to learn to cook amazing pork chops sous vide, including a dynamite pork chop rub, time and temperature, along with how to finish them in the pan, on the grill, or with a torch.

For people who like to cook sous vide we ran some tests and have pictures showing what happens when the chops are cooked at three different temperatures and for three very different lengths of time. Seeing the different times and temps lined up in pictures is a helpful way to understand how sous vide cooking works.

We have a very special treat for all of you foie gras lovers out there. First up is a sublime pan seared foie gras recipe with caramelized figs. The perfect bite in this dish is a slice of the caramelized fig sitting in between a piece of warm foie gras and a small bit of lightly toasted bread.

We developed the recipe with our friends from Au Bon Canard, who are committed to using artisanal French traditions and sustainable farming to produce the best tasting foie gras in America. As a part of our partnership, they’re offering 10 percent off to anyone who orders a whole liver by February 14th. Just enter the code TastyDuck10 during checkout.

For us this is going to be one of the strangest Super Bowls ever, normally it’s a weekend filled with delicious food and so many friends around that you’re lucky to find a seat on the floor let alone a chair. Unfortunately, with Covid putting the kibosh on things, there’s going to be lots of couch space and leftovers galore.

A few of our favorite recipes for big groups that are still good when no one else is around, include a deeply flavored Pulled Pork, a Homemade Bloody Mary Mix that is just as tasty for Tuesday morning conference calls as it is for big games, some Korean Inspired Chicken Wings, and the tasty little treat that is Baked Olives.
