We recently purchased a box of the Chop House frozen burgers by Holten and decided to review them. As it turns out there are 4 variations of this line of burgers this review is specifically about the Angus Beef Brisket Steak Burger. The other versions are Angus Chuck, Angus Sirloin and a Certified Angus Beef. These are available at most mass retailers and grocery stores everywhere.
As far as frozen hamburgers are concerned the Chop House burger line is at the higher end of what you will find in your grocery store. At just about $10 for 2lbs or 6 – 1/3 pound USDA Choice patties.
The packaging is attractive with all your basic nutritional and cooking instructions. What sets it apart for me is that USDA Choice logo. This is not something you typically see on frozen burgers of any kind.
As soon as you see these burgers out of the box you can tell that they are not your typical burger. The 1/3 pound patties look like they have some heft and you can see larger chunks of meat in them. I like it already!
These patties are individually frozen with wax paper separating each. They separated easily with no prying needed. We grilled them as we do any frozen burger (you can find that here).
The grilling process only had two things to note:
- On the first flip they were picture perfect and didn’t look like any frozen burger we had ever cooked before.
- Towards the end of the grilling process there were the typical flare-ups that you get with frozen burgers, just slightly less.
The Bottom Line of the Chop House Frozen Burgers Review:
These are by far the best mass produced frozen burgers we have ever tried. When you bite into them they have a meaty chew that you normally do not find in a fine grind burger. The angus brisket flavor really pops as well. We are fans of brisket burgers and these burgers almost taste like the fresh ground brisket from the grocery store.
If you like to have some frozen burgers around for unexpected company or just want something different I do not hesitate in recommending the Holten Chop House Angus Brisket burger.
Note: Since this article was written have had the Certified Angus Beef burger for the Holten Chop house line. It was not nearly as flavorful as the brisket burger. We would give that one 3 out of 5 stars.
How to grill Frozen Burgers
A frozen burger doesn’t have to be a bad burger. If you grill them properly.
From the package:
If you’re a burger lover, you no longer have to compromise quality for convenience when buying a frozen burger. Not with CHOP HOUSE Steak Burgers. Our burgers boast proprietary, butcher-style grinds so they’re bursting with flavor. Frozen fresh with a unique handmade look, CHOP HOUSE is sure to become the burger lover’s go-to-option. Enjoy!
It is important to note that we are in now way compensated for this review. We purchase the products from the grocery store and write an honest review from our experiences.
