As of Oct. 26, Arby's, of "We Have the Meats" fame, has decided to add another variety of meat to its line-up: venison.
According to the chain's press release, a Venison Sandwich will be available in "popular hunting markerts" beginning in early November 2016.
The sandwich will feature a thick-cut venison steak (obviously; if you know Arby's, you know it isn't about to skimp on the meat) and crispy onion, topped with something called a "juniper berry sauce" (which is a Cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries) on a toasted specialty roll.
The venison itself will come marinated in garlic, salt and pepper, and will be cooked for three, full hours in order to maximize tenderness.
"Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us to connect with them and offer a sandwich that they can't get at any other restaurant chain," Rob Lynch, the Chief Marketing Officer and Brand President of Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc., said in the chain's press release.
"We're a brand that's not afraid to take risks and while the Venison sandwich is probably the biggest stretch for us yet, it's incredibly delicious and we can't wait to get it in the hands of our guests. You won't leave a hunt empty-handed after stopping by Arby's."
For now, the Venison Sandwich is slated to be offered at 17 Arby's restaurants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.
