Product Review: Amazing Tastes, Burgers

Amazing Taste seasoning packets have been all over the food blog world for a while now. For those of you who don't know, Amazing Taste packs claim to season and tenderize and mostly come in protein specific blends. Like beef, chicken, pork, etc. I got some samples a while back and recently tried out the one for burgers. I didn't do anything fancy with them, just mixed a heaping half tablespoon of seasoning into a pound of beef. Then I fried them in a steel pan. A little cheese, some spinach, some mayo. They were good. I liked how the seasoning wasn't overwhelming but complimented the meat. The packet proclaims it's a delicate blend of onion and garlic and I'd say that's about right. I didn't notice any particular tenderizing going on, but I cook my burgers well done. I would be a little nervous if a powder, used in such a small amount, made them tender. Final verdict: for 99 cents, you can't go wrong if you want a quickie seasoning for your burgers. The flavor is good and the price is right. I plan on using more of the different types and I will post about it as I do. I have a plan for the poultry one...

We're grilling burgers today - wish I had some of this seasoning!

BTW - I received the herbs!! They came Thursday so I'm trying to decide which one I'll use first. I do have a hankering for some saucy beans/cassoulet-type dish . . .

I'm never sure about seasoning burgers because I love all the add-ons. Worth a try, though.
