#QuarantineCooking: Sous Vide Pork Chops in Balsamic Rosemary Reduction
APRIL 13, 2020 – Welcome back to #QuarantineCooking! Ready to prepare juicy, tender pork chops with a fancy French name and irresistible flavors?
Chez Panisse and the East Bay’s other Gourmet Ghetto restaurants may be closed because of the coronavirus, but your kitchen doesn’t have to be. If you haven’t tried the sous vide method before, now is the perfect time.
Before getting into the recipe, we gotta say… We had no idea that our very own broker/co-owner Cameron Platt, who brings us this dish, is such a natural chef! (We knew he could sell the heck out of houses and bomb the slopes on a snowboard…but this?)
Watch his très professionnelle cooking video, and we dare you to say he’s not set for a second career as a celebrity chef.
Let us know how your recipe turns out. Email us at email@example.com or post your pics on social media #AbioProperties #QuarantineCooking.
Note: If you don’t have an immersion circulator and specialized sous vide bath, don’t sweat it. Read what Martha Stewart has to say about that. All you really need is a pot, pan, and thermometer. Now, let’s get #QuarantineCooking!
