We Landed a Big Fish: Shark Tank Recap
Did you see us on ABC’s Shark Tank? While it’s been more than a week, the post-Tank glow has yet to wear off. For our pitch to Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, and Chris Sacca, we made The Perfect Sous Vide Steak. The step-by-step strategy for this gold standard of steaks can be found on page 145 of Lisa’s book, Sous Vide at Home. The Sharks washed it all down with the perfect cocktail for such a momentous occasion — a Moscow Mule infused with sous vide infused strawberry rhubarb vodka.
We made sure to pamper the guests at our special viewing party, too. While Chef Scott Peabody’s favorite thing to sous vide is the humble egg (perfect, custard-like results), he was kind enough to fill our bellies with Carolina Pulled-Pork Sandwiches as far as the eye could see that evening. There was also plenty of other appetizers, beer, wine, and champers for liquid courage before the party headed to the episode viewing area.
Our Top Moments from the Pitch
1. Being praised by Chris Sacca.
2. Lisa’s amazing metaphor.
3. Our family and friends filling the room.
4. The anticipation right before…
5. …and the champagne right after.
Here’s the crowd’s reaction when Lisa and Abe accepted Chris Sacca’s deal.
We are incredibly humbled to have had this opportunity and are looking forward to continuing this journey. We thank you, Nommunity, from the bottom of our hearts for all of your endless support! We couldn’t have done this without you.
Here’s to the next big adventure.
