I have been very eager to cook a beef brisket with my sous vide setup. Above is a nice whole beef brisket in a vacuum cryo pack. It is USDA Choice grade so it is nice piece of meat. I picked out a package with a nice white hard fat cap. Animals which were grain fed before slaughter are said to have the harder white fat cap.
I got the chance the other day to cook some duck. I have been wanting to for some time now, but have not been able to find any. I found some recently at a Ranch Market 99 in the Freemont area. I have never cooked duck before and have only eaten Peking Duck on a few occasions.
The following article is about Sous Vide cooking a Ranchers Reserve Cracked Pepper Petite Tender Beef Filet from Safeway. Normally when cooking Sous Vide, I purchase high quality beef and season myself. This package caught my eye, as it is pre-marinated and already in a vacuum sealed pouch.
