HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., 2017-May-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ:BJRI) announced today (May 15, 2017) the debut of its new Brewhouse Slow-Roasted Menu featuring items such as prime rib, turkey, pork ribs, pork shoulder and a double bone-in pork chop. Using ovens increasingly seen in five-star kitchens, BJ’s is setting a new standard of excellence for the casual dining segment in how it is slow roasting these new menu offerings.
These new menu items are slow-roasted for as long as eight hours and hand carved to order. They give even the finest steakhouses a run for their money in both tenderness and flavor but at lower prices in line with BJ’s legendary value. To maintain the highest quality, BJ’s is preparing its slow-roasted menu items in limited quantities each day.
“If you’ve dined at a high-end restaurant in the last five years or so, you’ve most likely enjoyed slow-roasted or sous-vide cooking,” said Greg Trojan, President and CEO of BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. “The process of cooking meat in a precise temperature-controlled and humidity-controlled environment has been evolving fine dining across America, and we are excited to bring this level of quality to BJ’s guests.”
The state-of-the-art ovens maintain exact temperatures to ensure every piece of beef, poultry and pork is browned on the outside and tender and juicy throughout. The innovative technology ensures consistent results and allows each BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse® to control the temperature, taste and texture of every bite.
“After a long series of taste tests and tweaks, we have perfected our Brewhouse Slow-Roasted entrees and sandwiches, delivering amazing taste at an affordable price,” said Trojan. “We spend hours slow-roasting every cut of meat so that our guests can spend every second enjoying it.”

PRIME RIB: 15 oz. of prime rib slow-roasted for over four hours, au jus, creamy horseradish, choice of two housemade sides, choice of soup or salad, and choice of Pizookie®.
