Applebee’s last week introduced its new Spirited Cuisine menu. The line was inspired by the techniques of cooking down wine, bourbon and beer to enhance the flavor. The Kansas City-based chain operator says Spirited Cuisine menu uses beer for slow cooking, wine for depth and bourbon to caramelize.
For instance, its new Napa Chicken & Portobellos dish is smothered in a rich cabernet demi-glace. The Double Barrel Whisky Sirloin is made with a smooth deglazing the pan to bring out the sweetness in the caramelized onions.
“We obsessed over combining wine, bourbon and beer with top ingredients to create craveable dishes that are approachable for our guests,” said Applebee’s executive chef Michael Slavin in a release. “Just a touch goes a long way in delivering the unique, well-balanced flavors of Applebee’s new Spirited Cuisine menu.”
