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.
