Restaurant Offers Customers First Taste of New Steak
Boise, ID. (May 24, 2012)— Double R Ranch Northwest Beef, a premium brand from Agri Beef Co., and Boise’s 13th Street Pub & Grill will make history on Thursday, May 24 with the restaurant debut of the new Vegas Strip Steak. The Vegas Strip Steak was developed by Tony Mata and Chef Rick Gresh in conjunction with Oklahoma State University’s Food & Agricultural Products Center and was unveiled to a select group of industry professionals earlier this year. Double R Ranch is one of only two producers in the nation authorized to cut and sell the new Vegas Strip Steak.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the 13th Street Pub & Grill to bring diners the country’s first Vegas Strip Steak,” said Terry Reynolds, Agri Beef Co. executive director of sales. “This steak offers our customers an innovative beef cut that is both tender and juicy, all at an affordable price point for consumers.”
The new cut is comparable to New York strip steak and boasts a tender, juicy flavor that doesn’t require aging or marinating. The extra lean and flavorful steak can be cut in a variety of sizes ranging from 4 ounces to 12 ounces, perfect for use in a wide range of food service and restaurant sectors.
“There is no doubt that this new cut delivers on all key attributes that consumers expect from a steak: tenderness, flavor, juiciness, and appearance,” says the steak’s creator and meat processing specialist, Tony Mata. “For a steak to become a reality, it must also provide value potential to all sectors of the industry from the farm to the table. The Vegas Strip Steak delivers on that as well.”
That value potential is exactly what drew 13th Street Pub & Grill in to the opportunity. Not only from the restaurant’s perspective, but in looking out for their customers, Scott Graves was intrigued from the start. “We have a discerning clientele that are looking for great food at a good price,” related Scott Graves, co-owner at 13th Street Pub & Grill. “This Vegas Strip has the potential appeal of a unique offering with great flavor and a fantastic eating experience. Just what we provide our customers.”
