Four Burgers. One Pound. $5.99!
Trader Joe's Grass Fed Angus Burgers come from cattle raised without the use of artificial growth hormones, on the vast, lush pasturelands of New Zealand. The cattle are 100% grass fed, grazing on wide-open pastures — their diet of natural greens contributes to richly-flavored, well-marbled beef. Raising cattle this way is more expensive than conventional methods, so grass fed meat tends to be more costly than conventionally raised beef. At Trader Joe's, though, our Grass Fed Angus Burgers represent an astonishingly good value, at $5.99 for a one pound package of four burger patties.
These particular Grass Fed Angus Burgers are labeled 80/20 — this refers to the ratio of lean to fat, meaning that it's 80% lean. And what exactly does that mean? It means these are incredibly flavorful burgers, whether you cook them on a grill, a skillet or under the broiler. Please feel free to cook Trader Joe’s Grass Fed Angus Burgers whichever way is most convenient for you — as long as you enjoy it, we approve. We're quite certain you'll approve of our price of $5.99 for a one pound package. You'll find these Burgers in our freezers.
Please keep in mind that because it tends to be lower in saturated fat, grass fed beef burgers cook more quickly than conventionally-raised beef, so we recommend decreasing your cooking time by about 20%. We've also been quite pleased with the results when we’ve brushed a little olive oil on these burgers before placing them on the hot grill.
