Derby Day Burgoo
Burgoo! Just the word itself sounds like there should be a song about it (and there is). It's Kentucky's most famous stew, usually made for big gatherings (such as Derby Day) in huge kettles. Burgoo dates to before the Civil War and as legend has it, was invented by a French chef. Like a mulligan stew, it's sort of a empty-the-fridge recipe. Burgoos typically have at least three different meats, and plenty of vegetables such as corn, okra, and beans.
The high West version uses:
Ballard Farms Pork Shoulder & House Smoked Pork Ribs - Rolling Hills Ranch Venison & Free Range Chicken. Simmered with Roasted Garlic - Caramelized Sweet Onions - Corn - Fava Beans - Okra - Red, Yellow & Green Peppers - Wild Rice - Copper Moose Red Kale. Finished with a Bottle or Two of Good Whiskey & Served with Corn Rosemary Sandies
Derby Hot Browns
"Fred K. Schmidt, chef at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, created the Hot Brown to serve famished guests following the nightly dinner dances featured at the hotel after it opened in 1923." The Web site for the Brown Hotel adds that "Diners were growing rapidly bored with the traditional ham and eggs, so Chef Fred Schmidt set out to create something new to tempt his guests' palates." The result was an open-faced turkey sandwich with bacon and a rich cheese sauce. (The sauce is called Mornay, which is a Béchamel with cheese.)
The high West version uses:
Roasted Wild Turkey Basted Wild Turkey, Served on Toasted Rye Points - Accented with an Award Winning Gold Creek Farm Smoked Parmesan Mornay Sauce - Crumbled Apple Wood Smoked Bacon - Roasted Roma Tomatoes
