Road Trip: Brand The Barn with Certified Angus Beef

Road Trip! I was invited to the Brand The Barn event by my friends at Certified Angus Beef® Brand. For their 40th anniversary, they’ve been painting barns across the country. The last one was at Atterholt Farms, just down the road from me in Loudonville, Ohio. It sounded like a fun event…and a great lunch from Chefs Michael Ollier and Gavin Pinto – how could I pass it up?

Just to make you drool a little…they had beef two ways for lunch. First was Beef, Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches. Ribeye roast, slow-smoked to 110°F, chilled, thin-sliced, then seared on a flattop over an open fire. The beef was piled on a bun with tomato chutney and arugula. 

Even better were boneless beef short ribs, smoked, then cooked sous vide for 36 hours until tender. Then they were sprinkled with rub, then grilled over a wood fire until crusty on the outside. Oh, my.

Thanks again to my friends at Certified Angus Beef for inviting me down to Loudonville – it was a fun time!

This is not a paid post for Certified Angus Beef® Brand, but they do sponsor posts on DadCooksDinner.
