State Fare: At Vaca y Vino, Chefs BBQ a Whole Steer. Put Sunday, April 21, On Your Calendar
If there was a better steer roast in Texas than Vaca y Vino, held on the outskirts of Austin last year, I’d like to know about it.
Vaca y Vino calls itself an “Argentine-inspired celebration of beef, wine, music, the outdoors, and our South American Roots,” but that’s not doing it justice. What Vaca y Vino really is is a whole lot of fun in the country.
A group of chefs roasts an entire 1,200 lbs steer, Argentine-stye, on an open fire grill. Meanwhile, you sip sassy Argentine wines and locally crafted beers, listen to live music in the Texas Hill Country, and get more than your fill of grilled meats.
The proceeds are donated to the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA), a national organization that supports independent family farmers and protects a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers. FARFA promotes common sense policies for local, diversified agricultural systems.
Snag your tickets here, and do it quickly. Last year’s event sold out fast.
