If there’s a time for comfort food, it’s now! Discover Chef Michael’s latest feature of the week at Stanford Grill – his melt in your mouth Braised Beef Short Rib with White Creamy Grits & Tomato-Raisin Chutney, available from Wednesday through Sunday only!
“Comfort food is definitely an experience that provides a nostalgic feeling to the person eating it. Comfort foods may be consumed to positively pique emotions or to relieve negative psychological effects. Our feature of the week will tap into the connection of these emotions of comfort food at its best. The melt in your mouth beef short rib alone will make your eyes roll back into your head. The sweet and tangy chutney cuts through the richness of the beef and you will surely be licking the plate as you finish all the creamy grits and sauce.” – Chef Michael.
There’s nothing quite like fresh fish, especially its scent and texture when it comes off a wood grill. This week Chef Michael is featuring his Hardwood Grilled Salmon Filet with Apricot Glaze through Sunday only at the Silver Spring and Woodmore Copper Canyon Grill locations!
“The first time I had salmon was at a young age. I can remember it like it was yesterday; the smoke from the burning wood and the aroma from the salmon left an incredible mark on my psyche. Years later, I still find myself thinking back to that day. So, this week I am excited to feature a hardwood grilled salmon filet, with maple-Dijon Brussel sprouts, horseradish cream, and an apricot-orange reduction sauce. The combination of the sweet from the apricot-orange sauce balances out the spiciness of the horseradish cream, adding a wonderful new way of enjoying our hardwood grilled salmon. Personally, I truly enjoy creating food that will leave lingering flavors long after your last bite. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.” – Chef Michael.
Finally, this week in Gaithersburg we will be highlighting Chef Michael’s combination of hardwood grilled pork, roasted squash, honey, molasses, Amaretto mustard and toasted almonds! The famed Pork Porterhouse is only available until Sunday and it is not to be missed.
