10 Pounds of Angus Burgers

I won Christo's caption contest a few weeks ago from Marx Foods.

Justin was kind enough to let me wait until after Thanksgiving for their delivery. I needed to clear some freezer space.

A fully insulated, well-packed box landed on my doorstep. Inside were 20 beautifully crafted burgers. 18 of them went into the freezer, 2 of them were defrosted for dinner that night.

I cooked them medium rare in a pre-heated dry skillet over medium high heat with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper.

The last minute or two I put on a slice of cheddar to melt.

"Amazing" doesn't do these burgers justice.

Johnny verified with me three separate times that he was just eating meat sprinkled with salt and pepper. He could not get over how much flavor was packed in these, he was convinced I had marinated them or something.

Thanks again Christo and Justin!
