When it comes to “deli bars” in Boca Raton, the Club at Boca Pointe is known for offering the best. Five stars is the common phrase used!
But now, Executive Chef Terry Daniels has ratcheted it up one more notch by turning to the ever-popular Chef Terry to make the delicate Corned Beef and Brisket that provides a hearty sandwich, and not just a St. Patrick’s Day meal. It is delicious! The Club at Boca Pointe is in the forefront of being the only country club in South Florida that has upped the quality and taste of the delicacies coming off the “deli bar.”
Why the switch? Isn’t any brisket meat good enough to produce corned beef and braised brisket?
“Ah, that’s what the average person may think but not to a connoisseur, not to someone with a discerning palate, and not to our members or guests, many of them who come from the Northeast where corned beef and brisket is like a staple,” says Chef Terry. “We’ve always used purveyors who supply us with the top quality meats and cuts. This is what makes our club standout and gets the five-star thumbs up.”
“But Kobe beef! That is another story. On the average, we go through 400 pounds of corned beef and brisket weekly,” says Chef Terry. “Of course, during our St. Patrick’s Day celebration, the consumption of corned beef more than doubles as members celebrate with traditional foods and enjoy a variety of events.”
To yearn for a corned beef on rye is tantamount to people saying, “It’s like going to heaven.” Can you relate?
But, what is so special about Kobe beef? Kobe beef is a special grade of beef from (Wagyu) cattle raised in Kobe, Japan. These cattle are massaged with sake and are fed a daily diet that includes large amounts of beef. This produces meat that is extraordinarily tender, finely marbled, and full-flavored. It is also extremely expensive. Because of the high cost and increasing demand, there are now some Kobe-style beef cattle being raised in the U.S. using the same formula.
How does the Chef turn Kobe beef into the delicacy that Boca Pointe members are used to eating? He’s not giving out that secret…at least not just yet!
