Trader Joe’s Uncooked Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers Review

Trader Joe's Uncooked Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers

We love Trader Joe’s burgers here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. However, we recently had a startling realization. See, we’ve reviewed their Turkey Burgers, their Chile Lime Chicken Burgers, and their Quinoa Cowboy Veggie Burgers (all of which are great), but we haven’t yet tried their basic beef burgers.

So we hopped into the car, headed to the nearest Trader Joe’s, and picked up a batch of the Trader Joe’s Uncooked Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers. These are the most basic of basic beef burgers, with only a single ingredient listed on the package: ground grass fed angus beef. These burgers are the real deal, and we’re thrilled to be reviewing them today.

Now, these are uncooked, so you’ll want to be extra careful to make sure you cook them all the way through (and to an appropriate temperature). That said, the package includes both stovetop and grill instructions, and neither of them will throw curveballs at anybody who’s ever cooked a raw burger before. (If you want to read those cooking instructions right off the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

As we mentioned earlier, these burger patties are pure ground beef without any additives. That means that while these are delightfully juicy, the taste is pretty simple. That’s not a bad thing, of course — a simple burger can be dressed up like true king of the produce aisle, after all. But these are not so much like the Turkey Burgers, which have a lovely natural flavor. No, these beef burgers are begging to be piled on with ketchup, mustard, and tomato.

We tried a burger with just lettuce and a hefty gob of swiss cheese, but it did feel like it was missing something. That something was ketchup. If you’re going to eat one of these, you really do need some ketchup to make the flavor profile feel complete.

Keep in mind that every burger contains 290 calories (200 from fat), as well as 80 mg of cholesterol and 23 grams of fat. This is no health food (though we should also point out that the sodium is an itty-bitty 75 mg, which is barely 1/10 of what the average frozen meal contains).

The Trader Joe’s Uncooked Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers are designed to be part of a grand sandwich combo that includes ketchup, cheese, and a bun (at the very least). That said, these make for a good burger meat if you pile on the extras. Just be careful, because the calories (and especially the cholesterol) will really add up fast. Real beef burgers are no health food!
