We Irish love a good steak - it's a pure and simple fact - so there's good, no great news for those of you lucky enough to be in Dublin this weekend for Taste of Dublin. Why? Aldi will be showcasing its 28 days dry Angus steak.
It gets better - Michelin Star Chef Cormac Rowe will be cooking the steaks to order at a specially created ’28 by Aldi’ Restaurant and Terrace. It will be the highlight (well, how could it not be?) of a three-course meal which will be accompanied by wines selected by Aldi to best complement the dishes.
After the starter (Cod Brandade, served with lemon aioli, cucumber, and chilli salt) diners will be invited to select their preferred steak, and discuss with Chef Cormac himself how they would like it cooked. Witness your steak being grilled to perfection right in front of your eyes and gooble it up with triple cooked chips, béarnaise sauce and a warm salad. Dessert and coffee follow. Mmmm.
The ‘28 by Aldi’ Restaurant and Terrace is open to Taste Festival goers who book with Aldi’s on-site Maitre’d. Make sure to book in advance because, predictably, availability is limited. You, the esteemed guests, are invited to share your favourite ‘28 by Aldi’ experience via @aldi_ireland #28byAldi.
For the poor souls not making it to Taste of Dublin this year, fear not, the 8oz Rib Eye, Striploin and Sirloin steaks, sourced from certified Irish Angus cattle and procured exclusively from Bord Bia approved farms in Co. Tipperary, are available now in Aldi stores nationwide - top quality 8oz Rib Eye or Striploin Steaks for just â‚¬7.99 each. Yippee!
