Brandt Beef Smoked Brisket Sandwich Named #1 Sandwich in New York By New York Magazine

BRAWLEY, Calif. – June 7, 2010 – Brandt Beef, a renowned beef producer that raises its animals humanely and naturally, is proud to announce that the “Brandt Beef Smoked Brisket” sandwich, served at Fatty ‘Cue, a Brooklyn-based restaurant specializing in Southeast Asian cuisine, has been named the #1 “Best Sandwich in New York” by New York Magazine. The “Brandt Beef Smoked Brisket,” the sandwich that propels Fatty ‘Cue into a must visit for all in New York, features mouth-watering chili jam, aioli, bao, red onion, and bone broth.

New York Magazine’s list of the “101 Best Sandwiches in New York” is a celebration of all that is great about the endlessly evolving New York sandwich. The list pays tribute to the most creative, well-prepared and delectable sandwiches in the city. The review of the Brandt Beef Smoked Brisket sandwich can be viewed here.

“Today's chefs are extremely driven by sourcing the very finest ingredients available to them,” says Tom McAliney, Brandt Beef’s Certified Executive Chef. “Then and only then can they truly showcase their unique culinary prowess. By listening to their needs and working with them we feel we are in a position to help them shape the culinary trends of tomorrow.”

Gaining recognition and being a part of winning teams is not foreign to Brandt Beef. In 2006 the Master Chef’s Association awarded Brandt Beef with the Master Chef’s Seal of Excellence, the only beef in the United States allowed to bear the prestigious seal. Most recently, Pitmaster Eric Johnson won first prize at the 21st Annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue brisket competition.

“In attaining two very separate #1 ratings with one individual cut by two very serious and prominent organizations, it really makes us confident we are doing the right thing,” says Eric Brandt, managing partner of Brandt Beef. “By raising the animals humanely and naturally without hormones from birth, and all the many various quality attributes we stand behind, it makes all the hard work and efforts pay off. We don’t cut corners on anything and this helps prove it.”

Fatty ‘Cue is a unique restaurant focused on bringing “a little Southeast Asian fermented funkiness and a whole helluva a lot of smoke” to Brooklyn, New York. Local and humanely grown, raised and fished products are subjected to their unique flavorings, scrubbed and rubbed, perhaps dropped in a salty-sweet dip pool, and then lovingly treated to low temperature smoke “baths” for guest’s dining pleasure.
