    And in the smoker the pork belly goes. That’s where the magic happens and transforms these beautiful pieces of meat into glorious bacon

    Pork Tocino. Couldn’t get a picture as it disappeared too quick.

    Tonight I made something I haven't cooked in a while. Very simple recipe, Whenever I smoke a large amount of meat, I save a portion of it for this recipe. I vacuum seal and freeze it until I have a sufficient amount available to cook.

    This time I have some leftover smoked brisket and prime rib cut into 1" cubes, smoked sausage, thick cut bacon and 2 cans of baked beans. It all goes into a dutch oven and simmers for about an hour. Served with some cheddar cheese cornbread. Probably not good for you but it tastes delicious.

    Today, I’d like to introduce you folks to a dish that’s near and dear to me. It’s a stew from Vietnam- a French stew with a Vietnamese twist such as- lemongrass, star anise, coconut juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, and Chinese 5 spice

    I usually cook on the weekends and I love stews but they take too long to cook. I found a great deal on a new pressure cooker so I took the plunge. Normally this stew takes 2 hours but I was able to do in 1 hour, only 38 mins of pressured cooking. Everything came out tender.

    This is the calf muscle or beef banana shank

    I had lots of tough cuts in there, beef shank and tendons. I got 10 out of 10 scores, so high marks on this one.

    This is the recipe I worked off of: https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/instant-pot-bo-kho/#recipe
