Got some beef cheeks and trying to decide how to do them. I'm thinking with some carne asada type spices in the slow cooker for 12 hours or so.

Looks like Anova is running a leftover 20% off fathers day promo on their website.

Thinking about buying one of their vacuum sealers as my foodsaver is dying. Wirecutter gives #1 status to their big sealer:
But I'm actually thinking of going with the small one to save space:

Discount applies to sous vide devices too.
Get the pro. I use the accessory (on the foodsaver sealer) to vacuum wine, quick marinate meats, use vacuum storage bins, etc way more than I am vacuuming for freezing/sous vide. Although, I need to start using the sous vide more.

I actually just ended up ordering a Pro off amazon warehouse for less than new with discount.

That said...I have never once used the accessory port on my current foodsaver. Part of that is that I keep "meaning to" order some containers that actually work with it (or mason-lid adapters), but have never bothered. I am interested in some resealable bags that might be reused for things like keeping walnuts in the freezer.

I don't keep it out on my counter, so day to day uses like vacuuming wine probably wouldn't happen.

Okay, I created something new and wonderful today. If this becomes a thing, remember ol' Piob invented it.

Thick cut, brioche bread. Kerrygold Irish butter. Homemade birria de rez. Oaxaca cheese, shredded. Consommé from the birria braising liquid.

Grilled cheese birria de rez sandwich dipped in consommé.

This is da shizznit.

That's not a grilled cheese: it is a melt.

*sigh*

I give you the vision of the burning bush and this is how you do me?

Seriously, try this out. It's insanely good.

According to this it can be open or closed. The main things a melt needs is melted cheese plus one additional filling usually a meat.

The important thing is ol' Piob evented this sandwich. When it's a YT craze remember it started here.

I'm making more sandwiches tomorrow night so maybe then. Also forgot to mention I put some finely diced onion and cilantro in it.
