- Start with butter, onions, carrots, celery, garlic until cooked down
- Add flour, stir well, cook for 4-5 mins
- Add chicken broth, bring to a boil
- Add wine and reduce to a simmer
- Add cream, cheese, Worcestershire, and hot sauce
- Serve with croutons
This recipe is inspired by one of my favorites, Gourmand's Beer Cheese Soup, which uses Shiner Bock. Feel free to use whatever you want, then go to [Gourmand's](http://lovethysandwich.com) to have the real thing.
- immerison circulator (we like the [Anova](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UKPBXM4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00UKPBXM4&linkCode=as2&tag=repl-20&linkId=XMRXWQ35OJNCZVGE))
- Sous vide the pork at 140° for 24h
- Submerge bag into an ice bath to completely cool
- Cut and portion the cold roast into individual steaks
- Seal and save (fridge for 3 days, freezer for longer)
- To serve, reheat in bag, sear in sourching hot pan
Pork is called "the other white meat", but this sous vide technique is so dang good I'm gonna graduate it up to "THE white meat".
- combine goat cheese, mayo, sour cream, 2/3rds of your chives, hot sauce, black pepper
- if you are feeling spry, beat the mixture to make it fluffy
- put filling in a plastic bag, snip of the tip with scissors to make a piping bag
- fill peppers, place in bowl, top with chives and hot sauce
We found these during Happy Hour at Chiso's Grill in Bee Cave, Tx. We've since tweaked the recipe a bit. This recipe is just a starting point, add/remove anything you want (like more hot sauce if you're into that). Sometimes I order the [peppers on Amazon](https://amzn.to/2MGUnam). My favorite hot sauces are Franks Red Hot, Jardine's Texas Champagne, and of course, [Yellowbird](https://amzn.to/2Pw4LAv).
Fun fact: Peppedew Peppers are basically a new thing. They are the brand name of piquante peppers, which were discovered in South Africe in just 1993. Hat tip to [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppadew) for the schooling.

<title>Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup</title>
<description><p>This recipe is inspired by one of my favorites, Gourmand’s Beer Cheese Soup, which uses Shiner Bock. Feel free to use whatever you want, then go to <a href="http://lovethysandwich.com">Gourmand’s</a> to have the real thing.</p>
<description><p>This is a simple one, consisting of a pre-made soup mix and whatever you’ve got around the kitchen (or campsite). Feel free to sub/swap/switch anything in the ingredient list— anything’s fair game!</p>
<description><p>A lot of places are doing dang good brussels lately, but none can touch <a href="http://saltysow.com/">Salty Sow</a>. They serve them fried, topped with pecorino and golden raisins. Yes, please.</p>
<p>We started trying to emulate it, but it’s such a versatile dish, you can make it however you want. Consider this a loose guide.</p>
<p>My name's Clark and you've just stumbled into <strong>Chowdown</strong>, a plain text recipe database for hackers. Over the years, I've tried dozens of recipe apps and services in an attempt to eat better and get more organized. With each app came a new format and <em>recipe lock-in</em>, neither of which got me excited.</p>
<p><strong>Chowdown</strong> is my attempt at fixing recipe app burnout, by moving my recipes out of closed services and into plain text. For example, here's <ahref="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clarklab/chowdown/gh-pages/_recipes/broccoli-cheese-soup.md">a recipe in plain text</a> that I've been working on for a while. It's a broccoli beer cheese soup inspired by Gourmand's, one of my favorite spots in Austin. Crazy delicious.</p>
<p><ahref="http://chowdown.io/recipes/broccoli-cheese-soup.html">Here's that same recipe processed with <strong>Chowdown</strong>.</a> It's a simple layout with a photo, ingredient list, and directions.</p>
<p>The magic comes behind-the-scenes, with <ahref="http://schema.org/Recipe">recipe microdata via schema.org</a>. This process adds special tags around each bit of content, which is what let's other apps (list coming soon) read your recipes. Data portability!</p>
<p><strong>Chowdown</strong> is definitely a work in progress. Active development is taking place. I'm new to Jekyll. Things might break. The recipes, however, are here to stay.</p>
