If you didn't catch the Steuben's Truck
at Tuesday's Civic Center Eats
, here's what you have to look forward to next week: Steubie Snacks.
These little bites---braised pork shoulder, deep-fried, then dredged in powdered sugar---are like candy. Seriously. As Josh Wolkon, owner of Vesta Dipping Grill
, and the truck, says, "We wanted something signature to serve off the truck that met the 'street food' criteria"---hand-held, simple, etc.
Even so, chef Brandon Biederman came up with nibbles almost by accident. While experimenting with a new braise, he cooked pork four or five ways but something was missing: "So being me, I threw them in the fryer, asked a sous [chef] to grab some powdered sugar, and 'pig crack' was made."
Get yourself a basket on Tuesday. You can munch on them while standing in line for other vendors, such as the Biscuit Bus
, the Denver Cupcake Truck
, Gastro Cart
, and Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs
