Stew Leonard’s to Welcome Kent Rollins & Red River Ranch Chuck Wagon for Labor Day Grilling Celebration
Official Chuck Wagon Cook of Oklahoma Rolls into Stew’s
Stew Leonard’s and acclaimed chuck wagon cook, humorist and “cowboy poet” Kent Rollins invite customers to take a trip to the Old West this Labor Day weekend and experience the best food on the trail! Kent will be grilling samples of boneless sirloin steak in his 1876 Studebaker chuck wagon, all while slingin’ bull with Stew’s customers and talking about his home on the range.
As seen on Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay and CBS Sunday Morning, Kent Rollins has been hailed by Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped as “…one of my favorite people ever to appear on Chopped. His cowboy-gentleman manners, his jokes—but, most of all, his delicious chuckwagon cooking—needs to find its way into your heart, and onto your table.”
Kent knows steak and sirloin is one of his favorites. With just the right amount of marbling to create a juicy, flavorful steak, boneless sirloin is a great cut of meat to cook on the grill and feed a holiday weekend crowd. Kent will use a special blend of dry seasonings and lime juice and grill the steak over mesquite charcoal for a smoky, nutty flavor that’s the very essence of Cowboy Cuisine. Come and get it!
Kent’s recently debuted first cookbook, A Taste of Cowboy (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), will also be on sale for the special price of $19.99 during the cooking demo. The cookbook features 256 pages, over 90 recipes, full-color food and scenery photography, cowboy wit and wisdom, wagon remedies and more.
Raised in Hollis, Oklahoma, near the banks of the Red River, Kent grew up around the cattle business helping his dad and later managed a cow/calf operation. Along with working cattle, cooking has always been a passion for Kent, which was learned from his mother at an early age. From the skills he learned in the kitchen and years of Dutch oven cooking for hunters deep in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico, Kent and his wife Shannon took to the trail with their business, Red River Ranch Chuck Wagon Catering. His popular recipe and story contributions can also be enjoyed each month in Western Horseman Magazine.
