i just want to vent. my dad bought a couple of filets of beef, and decided to put them in the freezer directly from the store. WTF. we even have a fucking vacuum saver which i have instructed him on how to use.
also, we have a sous vide machine, and i would like to cook them at like 138F or something but i dunno if it's going to be worth it considering they were frozen so poorly. and i should have a goddamn blowtorch, i did but this bitch stole it from me.
instead of having fresh beef sous vide'd to a perfect temp and blowtorched, we will probably go full pleb and say 'ahh fuck it let's just grill it'. and then he will finally fuck up by saying 'i don't want to mess with the coals lets just use the gas burners'.
what a goddamn sad day this has become
Ah, to be 14 again and to feel the unquestionable feeling that I knewmore than anyone else on the planet.
Kill yourself OP. Or at least move out of your parents house and grow the fuck up.
whatever plebs. you guys would settle for garbage that was left-over from dollar general because you think it makes you more 'authentic' or 'rustic' or 'farm to table'. chemicals are just chemicals you bigots.
i don't care if we butcher cows or pigs, i eat them and you should shut the fuck up about it
>Le sous vide meme
Firstly my parents are insufferable and freeze meat the second they get it too. I don't know why but I don't care enough to "vent" to my 4chan blog.
Secondly, sous vide and blow torch isn't the holy grail of food prep. It's not patrician. I like sous vide because it's easy, but its the same as sear and finish, it just requires less attention. It's not some magical skill or fine dining. I use it out of convenience. It's like microwaving vegetables instead of steaming them. It's the best way but hardly patrician.
Lastly, he bought his fillets. They weren't yours you can still be mad at his ignorance, but he didn't destroy your property so cease your rant. You're living under his roof (>we have a sous vide, >we even have a fucking vacuum sealer) and he's paying for your food (>we will probably have to go full pleb) you have very little room to act like he's doing the wrong thing by freezing the food he was supplying to you for free in his house.
okay well enlighten me on what superior technique you'd use other than sous vide / blowtorch? would you go full hipster and deep fry it after soaking it in buttermilk? god you guys are so lame.
>acting like prefrozen meats are That Much Worse than fresh
>must be b8
you must be pretty privileged, or spoiled, or both. buy your own steaks to sous vide, appreciate your dad while he's alive and you're not middle age and regretting ever being a shit child and wishing you could apologize, and just eat your tasty grilled steaks
