Notes
12 gathered for dinner this week (9 adults; 3 kids).

For the pork, I tried 160°F water for 90 minutes. Ice bath to cool down, then grill for about 20 minutes to color and reheat. This was better than my previous attempt (145°F water for 90 minutes), however, there was still a bit of pink. Next time I think I need to try a piece of meat that isn’t already vacuum-sealed so I can see the make-up of the muscles.

We finished almost everything (~4.5 lbs. pork, 2.5 lbs potatoes, 1.5 lbs. green beans, 6 bok choy).
