Arby's to sell Venison

Post by LooseGoose on Wed 26 Oct - 11:00

It'll be interesting to see how this goes over.

Arby's takes a stab at venison sandwiches in select locations

Fast-food chain Arby’s will begin testing venison sandwiches in select markets by the end of the month, the company announced Tuesday.

Arby's venison sandwich features a thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions with a berry sauce on a toasted roll, according to the company.

The venison sandwich is "100% deer meat," with premium cut top and bottom round steaks from the hind quarter of the deer, according to Rob Lynch, Arby’s Brand President & Chief Marketing Officer.

Lynch said the company released the sandwich as part of “It’s Meats Season” campaign, which celebrates the start of hunting season.

"Bringing venison to our menu also allows us to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to proteins," he said. "You simply can’t find this at other restaurant chains."

Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

LWS is probably calling the corporate offices asking where they'll sell the venison.

Then getting his tent ready to camp out at a location until the venison launches.

Venison would be extremely healthy Grasshopper.

Fat
Animal meats tend to be high in saturated fat, but there are a few exceptions. Wild game meats, such as venison, are low. This is often the motivation behind people choosing venison over beef. A 4-ounce serving of beef flank steak has more than 9 grams of total fat, and nearly 4 of those grams are saturated. Venison contains 3 grams of total fat and only 1 of those grams is saturated. If you are watching your intake of fat, venison would be the better option.

Protein and Carbohydrates
Beef and venison both contain high amounts of protein and no carbohydrates. This makes each type of meat favorable for a low-carb diet. A 4-ounce serving of venison or eye of round steak contains about 24 grams of protein. Venison and beef are considered complete proteins because they contain all 10 of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are compounds that are responsible for chemical reactions in the body, and they also play a role in metabolic function.

That's true, my kids love that place but the only thing I could ever eat from there was their version of a Reuben and it was barely tolerable.

And I guarantee you'll never see anything that looks like that sold in an Arby's, unless maybe you happen to stop by when the CEO and/or other corporate big wigs are there.

Great idea in theory, as I love venison, but some things are just not made to be in a fast food. Steak is one of them, and especially venison steak.

Clearly it has to be cooked then frozen then thawed then cooked. so I'm sure it'll be great.

They stabbed it? Doesn't sound like the most efficient way for a national chain. Regardless, think I'll pass on fast food venison. Like usual, I'll wait til my friend from the cornfields of the Southern Lower calls to tell me it was a good year and to visit if I want any.

I will be in both Clio and Birch Run that weekend. Specifically for this sandwich.

Am a venison fan, cook it at home and I don't see how Arby's can prepare it and make it taste worth a shit. It will be re-heated and lose at least 75% of what makes venison steak good.

I've read your posts for a long time GRR. I am always amazed at how much you know before you could possibly know it.

This.

aside from the "meat" portion being fast food, your body does nothing but convert the bread into sugar during the digestion process..

Sandwich sold out in 5 hours at the first location.  

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/nation-now/2016/11/01/arbys-sells-out-venison-sandwich-first-day-nashville/93110636/

Brilliant marketing - issue a press release, get millions in free advertising.

Link also says this:

According to DeRouen, the steaks are cooked sous vide (vacuum-sealed and slow-cooked in hot water baths) at 135 F for 3.5 hours, shipped to the restaurants for reheating and served with a Cabernet sauce seasoned with crushed juniper berries and crispy fried onions on top.

Actual sandwich:
