“There is a constant evolution in my kitchens, constant growth.  It’s creative, crazy, exciting.  We love what we do.”  - Chef Michael Mina 

Chef Michael Mina has incorporated this philosophy by crafting high-quality pub fare in a casual, warm setting in Michael Mina PUB 1842.  The cuisine is both rich and approachable - innovation combined with classic favorites.  Chef Michael Mina’s culinary creativity is shown in dishes such as the Peanut Butter Crunch Burger, Lobster Grilled Cheese and an authentic BBQ menu. Craft beers and cocktails are also thrown into the mix, with unique touches like an in-house carbonator and edible gold leafs as garnish.  These creations are not to be missed during your next trip to the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

You haven’t tried BBQ until you try Michael Mina’s Pub 1842 in house slow cooked BBQ. Every dish is crafted carefully, bringing out the best flavors in BBQ. Mouth-watering ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket are accompanied by bourbon baked beans, kale slaw, and our signature Kansas City BBQ sauce.

Here is a little on how Pub 1842 Chefs prepare these dishes. The ribs are smoked for 4 hours nightly, the brisket is smoked in with apricot wood for nearly 10 hours before being served. The pork shoulders are rubbed with signature seasoning containing garlic, onion, paprika, black pepper, light brown sugar, and then marinated overnight then slowly smoked over apricot wood for 9 hours until it falls apart. It all sounds so good that making a decision on what to order is hard - that’s why Pub 1842 has the BBQ platter so you can enjoy each dish in one sitting.

'MERICAN BEER CHEESE & POACHED EGG Recipe
From Michael Mina PUB 1842

INGREDIENTS  
4 Eggs
14 oz. Heavy Cream
8 oz. American cheese
8 oz. Velveeta cheese
3 oz. Calico Amber Beer
4 tsp. Bacon Bits
Pinch of Chive slices
Directions
1.. Place whole eggs in a 145 degree water bath for 45 minutes. It is important that the water does not reach a temperature above 145 or the egg will become hard boiled.  The egg needs to be liquid so you can stir it into the cheese sauce to add a wonderful richness to the cheese. Remove and run hot water over the egg to stop the cooking process but still keep the eggs warm.
2. In a sauce pot over medium heat, heat the heavy cream to a boil, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat, and add in the Velveeta, American Cheeses and beer. Mix with an immersion blender until fully incorporated and smooth.  
3. To serve. Place 1 cup of the cheese in a bowl and crack the poached egg on top.  Garnish with 1 tsp. bacon bits and a pinch of chives. 

4. Serve with pretzel rods, vegetables or tortilla chips. 
*Cue drooling…
