There the only rib steak burgers they do I think, as usual reach for the packets in the box behind. Should hold for 7 days or more without freezing. Don't forget the broche buns.
Local butchers are good, lidl aren't even close, only burgers the Mrs will eat now.

Aldi Letterkenny was the opposite plenty of fillets but nothing else. Grabbed the fillets for me and the wife and the last pack of rib eyes for the kids.

The Marks & Spencer’s burger sauce is just like McDonald’s sauce.

The smoky tomato sauce from the same M&S range is also really nice.

they should be back. I was asking the same in the food forum before and was told they are seasonal, so should come back in the next few months for BBQ weather. The hot dog ones are also gone and are brilliant.

Tesco have potato buns which are commonly used in the US in proper burger places. Bunsen use a potato brioche type bun, they can be called Amish dinner rolls.

The tesco ones were called the "firepit" range, but did not seem to sell well, they are quite expensive. After BBQ season was over they changed the name to finest potato rolls (or something like that). Can't see them online though.

Heya chaps, I bumped on these so called "Beef Bonds" where with €100-150 you seem to be getting plenty of meat but something doesn't feel right. Especially the
slow cook cuts, and the steak burgers I have a feeling they might be garbage meat. What's the culprit?

So according to their website you get the following:
- 5lbs selection of Roast Joints
- 3lbs selection of Steak Cuts
- 3lbs selection of Braise/Slow Cook Cuts
- 2lbs of a selection of Steak Mince & Steak Burgers
- Selection of Offal, some marrow bones and some great stock bones

Beef Bonds

Seems complex and IMHO is overpriced.

14 weeks seems like a long time if you fancy a steak for dinner.

While I wouldn't class them as garbage cuts they usually are derived from the cuts that are the least expensive because they are the toughest meat.

The selection of offal/bones is the garbage that most butchers would give you for free because otherwise it costs them money to dump.

He's got a lovely worded advertisement but read it again and you'll see his cattle could be fed on the cheapest gm based grain for all we know.

Even if they were reared in the cattle equivalent of Utopia it seems very expensive for what you get.

Aldi have another rib steak burger, I think its a new product. They're wrapped in maple cured bacon and topped with either cashel blue or cheddar cheese. Big chunky 8oz burgers, 4.49 for two of them. The other rib steak burgers for 2.79 are a lot smaller, 4oz each.

Seems like a bit of a gimmick to me as they're not clear on what joints and steak cuts you get. You could end up with 5lbs of housekeepers cut and 3lbs of minute steak.
