Starbucks Now Offers BBQ Beef Brisket

Starbucks adds the new BBQ Beef Brisket on Sourdough sandwich this summer.

The brisket is described as being "slow-cooked for seven hours and mixed with smoky BBQ sauce." "Slow-cooked," to me, suggests that it is braised rather than smoked. Also, barbecue seems a bit of an odd choice for a coffeehouse.

The brisket is accompanied by Northern California-sourced ingredients including roasted onion braised in Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock Beer, Sonoma Jack cheese, and toasted San Francisco-style sourdough bread.

Additional, the company has updated the Chicken Santa Fe Sandwich with an Ancient Grain Flatbread rather than the previous plain Flatbread. A Starbucks rep describes the new flatbread as having a "rich, Southwestern flavor and crunchy texture."

Price on Starbucks warm sandwiches vary but range from $5.25 to $6.45.
