Over the past year, Applebee’s has been re-working its menu and cooking up new items.
As per Applebee’s’ PRN Newswire press release here’s a bit of what you can expect:
“We’ve taken classic bar-and-grill favorites and elevated them with premium ingredients and on-trend flavors guests love,” said Senior Vice President of Culinary and Marketing Darin Dugan. “And we offer them in a variety of portion sizes and combinations that provide guests with an unprecedented ability to customize and personalize their experience.”
The nine new appetizers include traditional, American bar-and-grill favorites like nachos, meatballs and fried shrimp, taken to new heights by the use of premium ingredients and unique and innovative builds that underscore flavor and craveability.
For example, new Salsa Verde Brisket Nachos features tender, slow-roasted brisket, shredded and tossed with salsa verde and served with gooey white queso cheese sauce on the bottom and stretchy shredded cheddar on the top. Fresh jalapenos, lettuce and pico de gallo add texture and contrast, and in-house, hand-cut tortilla chips complete the dish.
New Kobe-Style Meatballs uses top-of-the-line premium ground beef for a juicier, more flavorful meatball that is slow-cooked in Pomodoro sauce and served with a French-style baguette.
New Sriracha Shrimp are fried with Applebee’s proprietary coating, which provides a light, flaky crunch. Then they’re tossed in a Sriracha Chile Lime sauce and served on a nest of wonton noodles.
New Double-Crunch Bone-In Wings are larger, meatier wings, flash-fried twice for extra crunch, then tossed with a choice of six sauces: Honey BBQ, Spicy Sweet, Asian Chile, Classic Buffalo, Hot Buffalo and Thai Peanut.
New Bar Snacks include Double Crunch Bone-in Wings, Pot Stickers and Churro S’mores; New Shareables include a larger portion of Pot Stickers, Sriracha Shrimp and Sweet Potato Fries with three dipping sauces; and new Pub Plates includes Sweet Chile Brisket Sliders, Kobe-Style Meatballs, Salsa Verde Shredded Brisket Nachos, a larger portion of Double Crunch Bone-In Wings and a Chicken Quesadilla.
