The recent injury to chef Allie Redshaw has done no harm to the imagination of one of the brightest young minds in the Charlottesville food scene. And so, for the next sandwich in Keevil & Keevil’s series of guest chef collaborations, Harrison Keevil has eagerly called upon Redshaw and her husband Ian. The result is outstanding.
The “sandwich” is a fresh spring roll stuffed with braised oxtail, curried rice noodles, cucumber, cilantro, scallion, peanuts, pickled carrot, and a “special sauce” of Duke’s mayo, fish sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, and sriracha. In typical Keevil & Keevil fashion, most of the ingredients come from just steps from the shop. The oxtail from JM Stock Provisions is braised in ginger from Planet Earth Diversified. The spices for the curried noodles are from The Spice Diva. The herbs and vegetables are from City Market. And, the peanuts are from Hubbs.
“Ian and I make wraps like these all the time for dinner,” says Redshaw. “It’s a great way to lighten up a heavier protein like oxtail in the summer months.”
Agreed. Delicious. I had one for breakfast this morning.
Available through July.
