Sandwiches in Review: Burger King Stuffed Steakhouse

February 20, 2011

Burger King’s latest addition to their Steakhouse XT line has been met with a lot of criticism.  It’s a hamburger patty with pieces of cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers mixed in.  A lot of people have decried this concept as being disgusting, but I’m hesitant to go that far.  I’ve heard of a number of burgers with things like chopped onions or pickles mixed in, and while this is a bit more extreme, it’s the same idea.  I didn’t want to be like the rest of the internet and review the Stuffed Steakhouse without trying it first, so I hit my local Burger King drive-thru and picked one up.

Now if it was full of cocktail shrimp or mini marshmallows or something, THAT would be gross.

And it’s not actually half bad!  First off, it doesn’t look nearly as unappetizing as the promotional pictures.  It actually just looks like a blackened patty with some seasoning bits in it.  It also is surprisingly subtle for a gimmick burger.  When you think about it, it makes sense.  It doesn’t have a whole slice of cheese or a ton of jalapeno spread slathered on it, so what’s in the burger is pretty much what you get.  There’s enough jalapeno to taste the flavor of the pepper, but it doesn’t have the intense heat of some “spicy” sandwiches, specifically the ones Burger King puts out.  The burger also comes with tomato, lettuce, and a poblano sauce which I didn’t even really notice.  All in all, it’s a perfectly decent burger that doesn’t overindulge in heat.

As a limited time premium offer, the Stuffed Steakhouse burger is pretty expensive.  Still, I’d recommend giving it a try.  It’s an interesting sandwich concept that doesn’t take it too far.  Buy this one so you can skip the inevitable “Bacon Crispy Onion BBQ Stuffed Steakhouse.”
