Montana Stockgrowers Association announces Second Annual Cattle Crawl
August 1, 2008
The Montana Stockgrowers Association (MSGA) announced Aug. 1 its second annual Cattle Crawl to be held Sept. 7. The Cattle Crawl is a progressive beef dinner tour of the Windmill, Bistro Enzo, Rex and Granary restaurants in Billings, MT.
The tours will begin at 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. at the Windmill, where diners will be served a steak Oscar appetizer, featuring beef tenderloin and crab on a bed of julienne potatoes with a Bearnaise sauce, red peppers and mushrooms. The group will board a bus and head to Bistro Enzo, where the chef will serve beef borscht made of beef chuck, cabbage, beets, potatoes and onions. At the next stop, the Rex will present a Delmonico steak (a new cut developed by the Cattlemen’s Beef Board) with a Bordelaise sauce and smashed poblano sweet potatoes on a bed of micro greens. After that, the group will travel to the Granary, where they will enjoy a seared petite tender medallion with wild mushroom demi glaze and cheddar cheese mashed potatoes with grilled asparagus. The Cattle Crawl will then return to the Windmill for a dessert of apple puff pastry with fresh grilled apple slices, vanilla ice cream topped off with caramel and spun sugar, and coffee. Wine or beer will be available at each stop and participants will receive a commemorative wine glass for attending.
The Cattle Crawl is made possible by Montana beef producers and Check Off dollars. Tickets are $75 per person or $140 per couple. For more information or to join the herd, please contact Rose at MSGA at (406) 442-3420.
