Broke down a "chef's prime" pork roast. I didn't previously like this cut because there's an annoying band of fat and muscle that runs right through it. But after figuring out the trick of breaking it into two separate roasts I like it now. The darker meat is much more tender and tasty. Seasoned, vacuum sealed, and cooked for 2 hours at 153°F in the sous vide.
