We’re meat centric ... try one of our roasts or BBQ selections
There’s something elemental about well-roasted meat: dark, crusty and seared on the outside … tender and bursting with succulent flavor and natural juices on the inside. Roasting is simple cooking, but not ordinary. When you use top-quality ingredients enhanced with herbs, seasonings and just the right touch, the results can be incredible!
At Au Jus we offer 5-hour Italian-herbed Porchetta. Deep-flavored pasture-raised lamb. Certified Angus beef roast. Roast turkey breast. Traditionally oven-roasted chicken – crispy-skinned, golden and juicy, and more. All are available as sandwiches on artisan breads, or platters served with a choice of sides.
We make jus for our roasts from pan drippings, enriched with roasted vegetables and herbs, building full flavor with a long, slow simmer in the oven.
AUTHENTIC OKLAHOMA BBQ
Choice beef brisket, dry-rubbed with a unique blend of seasonings handed down through generations, then gently hickory-smoked low and slow. The result? Moist, tender, succulent beef brisket crusted with flavorful “bark” and served with our homemade, tangy BBQ sauce.
All our BBQ choices – meaty, tender St. Louis-style pork ribs, juicy Tulsa BBQ pulled pork, BBQ beef brisket and spicy Oklahoma beef “hot-links” sausage are made from family recipes that call for careful preparation and patient cooking.
We use hickory wood in our smoker and always cook “low & slow”. Some preparations take 12 hours or more. The end result is a deep, meaty flavor enhanced with our original BBQ sauce. Try our authentic Oklahoma BBQ on a sandwich with house-made coleslaw and pickled onions, or as a platter with our baked beans and other sides.
Our U.E.S. location – we gladly seat 35 for lunch or dinner … 5 at a time!
