Fast-casual US restaurant chain Sweetgreen has announced that it is testing its new Caramelised Garlic Steak at 22 participating locations in Boston, Massachusetts.

The limited-edition menu item is part of a broader offering that includes the Steakhouse Chopped Bowl and Kale Caesar Steak Salad, all featuring the new protein.

Caramelised Garlic Steak combines wild rice, roasted sweet potatoes, spicy broccoli, arugula [rocket] and balsamic vinaigrette.

The Steakhouse Chopped Warm Bowl is another addition, blending quinoa, crispy onions, blue cheese and Sweetgreen’s signature Green Goddess ranch dressing.

For those who prefer a classic with a twist, the Kale Caesar Steak Salad features the chain’s Caesar dressing, kale, romaine, parmesan crisps and a hint of lemon.

Sweetgreen’s new dish is made with grass-fed sirloin steak, which is complemented by a blend of slow-roasted caramelised garlic and onions.

Sweetgreen head chef Chad Brauze said: “Sweetgreen is known for combining simple, well-sourced ingredients with in-house culinary skill to bring our guests the best tasting food.

“The key ingredient in our test menu is the premium, super-tender steak that we toss with perfectly caramelised, house-roasted garlic and onions. Our new Caramelised Garlic Steak will take any of our plates, bowls and salads to the next level.”

Sweetgreen recently announced a switch to extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil as the exclusive cooking oils for all its proteins, grains and vegetables, further emphasising its dedication to ingredient quality.

Sweetgreen co-founder and chief concept officer Nicolas Jammet said: “Our commitment to craveability is all about testing new and exciting menu items with our fans.

“Caramelised Garlic Steak delivers everything our guests love about Sweetgreen —high-quality ingredients with delicious and satisfying flavours.”

This month, Sweetgreen appointed Rossann Williams as its new chief operating officer.

Williams will be part of Sweetgreen’s executive leadership team and will oversee the company’s operations, real estate, development and supply chain.
