The famous Wahlburgers hamburger meat is now available in your local grocery store. They are so proud of the blend of angus beef that they use in their restaurant, that on the top of the menu above the burgers it reads: “Our fresh angus beef is a proprietary blend of brisket, short rib & chuck”.
It’s pretty unusual to see something like this in your fresh meat case. Typically licensed products show up frozen (it appears there are also frozen patties available as well). To me this shows a dedication to quality meat.
Let’s skip the Wahlburg family history and get right to the point of the Wahlburgers ground beef patties review.
Are the Wahlburger Angus Beef Patties worth while?
The cost: at $9.99 per pound these are a lot more expensive than 80 – 20 CAB angus ground chuck which comes in at only 5.99 per pound. Regular ground beef is currently almost half of that. A blend of chuck and brisket accounts for some of this price difference. The rest is probably the Wahlburg premium. Note: the fat to meat ratio is not listed on the package (leaner meat is more expensive).
The package is 1.33 pounds and cost us $13.29. It contains 4 patties that are slightly less than a 1/3 of a pound (cost of 3.33 per burger). This certainly makes them larger than your typical premade hamburger. The patties appear to be a medium grind as a result should provide a more meaty texture.
Wahlburger Angus Beef Patties are not seasoned, nothing but meat in this package. We will season them with our favorite seasoning and grill them up.
On our gas grill they shrunk up enough to make me think that this is a 70-30 blend. The shrink was very noticeable affecting the size a lot more than the thickness.
The Taste Test:
I was pleasantly surprised with the Wahlburger angus ground beef patties. They had a great flavor and enough of a chew to know it was beef you were eating. This is the burger flavor you would expect from a higher end burger joint.
Wahlburgers Ground Beef Patties Review the Bottom Line:
While these were some excellent burgers, the price is a bit off putting to me. This is one of the better hamburger meats you can find. If money is no object go for it or wait for them to be on sale. Would I buy them again? Yes, only if they were on sale.
