Stuffed Meat... the Burger King Stuffed Steakhouse Burger

I realize I haven't written in a while, and all two of you who read my blog have probably forgotten about me by now, having ridden off into the sunset in a blaze of disappointment. Either that, or you won't get past that very long sentence to get to my review.

However, I will forge ahead and review anyway. Let's talk about stuffed meat, shall we? The item in question is Burger King's brand new Stuffed Steakhouse Burger. I like to make things sound as vulgar as possible, so from this point forward, we (the Royal We) shall refer to this sandwich as Stuffed Meat.

Normally when I want a fast food burger, I head to McDonald's, because there is a McDonald's every five feet and because I love the fries (who doesn't?). However, McDonald's' (McDonald's's?) burgers taste like paste. So sometimes I need an audience with The King.

I bought Stuffed Meat for lunch today on a whim. My husband and I saw a commercial for it recently and agreed that it looked a) delicious, b) sort of disgusting, and c) like something we'd like to eat.

Stuffed Meat is a steakhouse burger patty stuffed (yes, stuffed) with cheddar cheese and jalapenos, topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and some orange-ish sauce called poblano sauce, on a cornmeal-dusted bun. It is the approximate diameter of a frisbee and is very messy. Think "papier mache" meets "Whopper".

The burger was very juicy, and a little spicy. The spice was not intolerable. I am a mutant spice-sensitive weirdo, so my definition of "spicy" is different from those who like spicy food. My husband, for example, could probably eat a jar of ghost chilis and exclaim afterward, "Who wants nachos???" But I, alas, get a runny nose when I eat Hormel chili. That said, the sandwich had a little bit of heat, but not so much that it took away from the taste.

All in all, a very delicious burger. I would recommend it. Burger King continues to outshine McDonald's in the sandwich department. It's a shame, really... what a waste of delicious fries.
