Last month I had the opportunity to share samples of our beef with the Sun Prairie community during the annual Downtown Sun Prairie Artful Wine Walk. We sat up a display and passed out samples at the new Cannery Wine Bar and Tasting Room. In addition to all the great community members we had the opportunity to meet that night, we also got to know Lori Hackman, the owner of The Oilerie in Sun Prairie. She was also there sampling some of her businesses products and what fantastic products they are! We immediately starting brainstorming on how we could collaborate and combine our quality products to make something fantastic.
This week the farmer girls and I headed into Sun Prairie to meet with Lori at The Oilerie. If you have not been into this store yet, it is a must stop, it is more than just a store, its an experience. Inside the store, you will find that are 3 different bars with vats of flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegar. You can sample each of the different flavors and when you decide on one (which is a tough task!) they will bottle and seal it right there for you. The flavors and quality of these products are top notch.
Get ready for some tasty recipes coming at you with all these great ingredients
Lori sent me home with some products to experiment with and develop some tasty recipes for all of you! This is going to be so fun because Wells Farms Premium Beef + Quality Oilerie Ingredients = Fantastic Recipes!!
The first recipe I have for you is our Tuscan Burger.
Now that is a burger!
The Tuscan Burger is actually one that we have been making for years. Actually, I am pretty sure it was Kenny who came up with the original recipe. But let me tell you, using the 25-year-old Balsamic Vinegar from The Oilerie took this to a whole new level. WOW! You can totally see a difference between this balsamic and your standard grocery store variety just when you pour it out. It is thick, almost balsamic reduction thick. And the taste, well you just have to taste it for yourself - delicious!
