I wish this section was more active, but anyway, here goes…
Over and over, I see Guga, and other Internet cooks suggesting that most of the fat should be trimmed off of Beef Brisket and other fatty cuts ???
First off, if you must, I hope your saving that fat for some fried beef cracklings or something !
But why trim it in the first place ? I’ve heard Guga say SV does not render the fat well… Hmmm. It seems to for me. Whatever fat that is not melted away, seems to reduce even farther when searing with my weed torch. Plus adds great flavor !
Seriously, with my next beef brisket, I might trim only the thickest, easiest hunks of fat (which again, will definitely be saved) but I’m just not too worried anymore about putting a good amount of fat into the SV bag. How about you ?
