Our Tasting Panel used to be rather toffee-nosed about burgers—but not after tasting Ifor’s Welsh Wagyu beef steak burgers. They are a surefire way to win celebrity status among family and friends at your next barbecue. Their extraordinary succulence, melt-in-the-mouth texture and a rich, buttery, meaty and mouth-filling flavour that is not in the least fatty, ranks them as the best you will ever eat. They are also healthy. And at the Club price you can enjoy them at an excellent discount.
The steak comes from Ifor Humphreys, owner and breeder of the first pure Wagyu herd in Wales. These Wagyu cattle are those which are prized in Japan as ‘national treasures’—and Ifor looks after them in similar style, feeding them four pints of beer a day from the local Monty’s Brewery, accompanied by an occasional massage. He keeps them largely grass-fed apart from their daily tipple, and the result is the ‘creme de la creme of beef’—wonderful in flavour and far too good for a mere burger: we tried them without the bread bun, just with salad and fries: they were delicious, better than many steaks.
These Welsh Wagyu beef steak burgers are created by Rick Stein Super Heroes Jeanette and Rachel at Alternative Meats using 100% Welsh Wagyu steak and a sprinkling of Anglesey sea salt. We have arranged for two Club Wagyu beef steak burger hampers—the Ifor, which is 20 Welsh Wagyu burgers, each weighing 6oz (170g); and the Monty, a collection of two 10oz burgers and six 6oz. They arrive frozen, they cook in literally minutes and are gluten free.
The Monty (2 x 10oz burgers and 6 x 6oz).
