Review: Steak and Egg Breakfast Burrito from McDonald’s
Sweet mystery of life, at last I’ve found youuuuuu! McDonald’s has a new breakfast burrito. Apparently it’s still a limited regional offering and has already left my area, but not before this fat kid got his greedy hands on a couple. I give you: McDonald’s Steak and Egg Burrito. Breakfast is usually my favorite meal at McDonald’s, save the Angus Mushroom and Swiss, and the Steak and Egg Burrito reaffirmed my choices in life. At least regarding what to have for breakfast. Not much to be said about the rest of it. I was unable to locate a description on their website, however I feel the pictures and this review will sufficiently explain what you may (and should) be getting yourself into. A bit larger than their standard sausage and egg burrito, the steak and egg is more substantial thus more satisfying. Steak, eggs, cheese and a unique salsa roja round out this gem, all wrapped in a white flour tortilla.Your region may or may not have a different combination of ingredients, adding or subtracting them to determine maximum popularity. The portions and pricing may differ per region as well as it seems this item is still in the national test phase and has yet to become a standard addition to the menu. I wish I had known that at the time. I would have stocked up, loading my freezer with these bad boys and making full use of my microwave at regular intervals.The steak was tender and juicy. Full of that authentic Mexican restaurant flavor; the steak nearly fell apart in my mouth and almost had the consistency of shredded beef. The eggs were fluffy and well done, no extra moisture and just enough salt to make them tasty. The cheese was their standard American McDonald’s uses on all of their sandwiches and wraps. Almost an enchilada sauce but with a bit more flavor the salsa roja wasn’t overwhelming, nor was it exactly spicy. It did however, give this little beaut a delightful kick of south of the border flavor and complimented the steak perfectly.In summation, I loved it. This is easily my favorite thing at McDonald’s, past, present or future. Get one now. Drop whatever else you may be doing and GET. ONE. NOW.
Pros: Everything about this delight is a pro. I cannot fully express my satisfaction with this item.
Cons: I have to wait with bated breath hoping this burrito becomes a permanent addition to the McD's breakfast menu.
