I paid about ten bucks for this four pack of pre-made burgers from Meat District. If I’m honest, it was the neon-bright packaging that caused me to pick them up more than anything else; I am a sucker for a handsome package. For the price, I didn’t expect much per the brisket and short rib elements.
Inside the cardboard sleeve, four patties come inside a plastic sealed container. One you’ve opened it there’s no way to reseal them.
Cooking: grill em, fry em, smoke em, you name it – they’re raw burgers folks. The packaging reckons pan fry or grill and take them to 165F and over.
Taste and texture: Decent. As with most pre-made patties I found the texture too tightly packed for my taste, though not as bad as some. There’s definitely some moderate beefy flavor here; again for the price I wasn’t expecting anything too premium.
Overall: You will of course make better burgers from scratch yourself, but as a grab and go, quick, no fuss, no muss, meal solution, these work.

Are Meat District Chuck Brisket and Short Ribs burger patties any good?
A fairly by the numbers pre-made burger patty. There’s nothing exceptional here, but nor is there anything unappealing. A solid pre-made burger.
