Big Lou's Red & White Burger

Big Lou’s Red & White Burger

The namesake of Big Lou’s Butcher Shop was the long time butcher at Red & White grocery store in Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast. His home made burgers, grilled and served up in the backyard, were a favourite summer treat for local kids.

After months of working on testing and tweaking all the ingredients, Big Lou’s Red & White Burger is ready to launch and has been added to the Big Lou’s menu just in time for the arrival of sunny Spring weather. It’s a tribute to those simple, tasty backyard burgers, made with beef ground in house, and topped simply with Iceberg Lettuce, melted processed cheese, house made sauce and served on a soft sesame bun.

The Red & White Burger costs $7.50 including a bag of Miss Vickie’s chips and will be available daily to enjoy at lunch or as an impromptu picnic in one of the green spaces in Railtown. Big Lou’s Butcher Shop is located at 269 Powell St. and is open 7 days a week.

Irish Breakfast SausageBig Lou’s Butcher Shop is set for St. Patrick’s Day with some housemade Irish specialties ready to be cooked up this weekend.

Fresh off receiving another Georgia Straight Golden Plates Award as one of the Best Butchers in Vancouver, we’ve finished preparing batches of our Irish Breakfast and Guinness & Steak Sausages. We’re also stocked up with have some of Two Rivers Meats’ Natural Corned Beef and local beef that’s perfect for your stews.

Our “SuperBen” Irish Breakfast Sausage was inspired by our Irish Butcher Ben who craved the taste of the legendary Superquinn Sausages, considered an Irish national treasure. When he complained that he couldn’t find anything like a Superquinn in Canada, we took it upon ourselves to recreate that banger, and went through a number of different recipes before we got one that passed the Ben test. They’re great in a St. Paddy’s day brunch.

The Steak & Guinness Sausages make for a Bangers and Mash that any house would be proud to serve. We grind three kinds of steak with caramelized onions, spices, Guinness and a very small amount of breadcrumbs to absorb the beer and bind the mix. Who can resist steak and beer in sausage form?

Finally, our friends at Two Rivers Meats have made some naturally-raised Corned Beef which we’ve brought in for anyone who’s planning to celebrate with Corned Beef & Cabbage or a Corned Beef Hash.

Quantities of all these are limited, so come down soon to make sure your St. Paddy’s is one that your tastebuds will remember. Big Lou’s Butcher Shop is open 7 days a week at 269 Powell St. in Railtown. Call 604-566-9229 or visit www.biglousbutchershop.com for more information.
