It’s supposed to be an early winter here in the PNW! With cold windy days approaching quickly, Chef Navi is sharing his recipe for this delicious, savory stew that will keep you warm all winter.

Ingredients

2 carrots

1 medium yellow onion

4 celery stalks

1 TB herb mix (rosemary, thyme, oregano)

1 TB crushed garlic

1 Lb top round beef

8 Cups beef stock

2 TB flour

2 TB butter

2 TB Worcestershire sauce

1/2 Cup barley

1/2 Cup red wine

Salt

Tools

4 quart pot

Mixing spoon

Liquid measuring cup

Knife and cutting board

Measuring spoons

Directions

Dice the carrots, onion and celery to create a mirepoix

Cut beef into 1 inch cubes, saute with butter, garlic, and diced mirepoix veggies until onions are translucent

Add flour, mix and coat the meat nicely

Add barley and mix

Deglaze the pan with the red wine, cooking it until all the alcohol has burned off and it evaporates

Add beef stock and bring to boil

Reduce the heat and cook until the right consistency is achieved, and the beef is tender (about 25-30 mins)

Add the herb mix and worchester sauce to finish

Bacon & Beer Classic 2018

Did the first word to catch your attention start with B and end with Acon? I’m sure it did.

This year we are honored to be a part of a pretty awesome annual event – The Bacon and Beer Classic.

If you don’t already know, the Bacon and Beer classic is a traveling festival that makes its way all over the country to display 30+ food vendors who use their unique styles to push boundaries on how bacon can be used in a variety of dishes.

This event is for anyone who really enjoys bacon with a side of beer. Well, except for vegetarians.

The Bacon and Beer Classic strives to reach out to local, newer restaurants and private chef/caterers to participate in the festival and we just couldn’t say no!

Navi has been working hard to create fun, edgy and hip ways to enjoy bacon and we have a LOT in store for everyone that is coming.

I don’t want to ruin too many surprises, however, we figured a few sneak peek photos of these amazing three dishes Navi will be presenting the public with.

This is the 5th year of the Bacon and Beer Classic event and this will be the biggest one yet. You can expect MORE beer, MORE food and MORE people than ever before! There will even be games to participate in, like a Bacon Eating Contest! Say what?! This is a bacon lover’s dream.

Can you guess what type of dishes we will be serving? Is your mouth watering yet from all of the bacon talk? If so – make sure you buy a ticket for the Bacon and Beer Classic for this month!

See you there!
