Meet the King of the Grill: Sobeys Burgers (and a Giveaway!)

Saturday, July 30, 2011


The second long weekend of the summer is upon us and the sun has made its way past the clouds. This means it's ideal weather for a good ol' fashioned barbeque. And nothing says 'barbeque' like a mouth-watering hamburger grilled to perfection. Meet the king of the grill: Sobeys Sensations by Compliments burgers.
When I went shopping for some of Sobeys' Private Label burgers, I was surprised by their broad selection. They had the tried and true classic beef burger as well as new and unique flavours such as: 100% Beef, Prime Rib, Angus, Sirloin, Mesquite BBQ Sirloin, Cheddar & Bacon, Three Cheese, Peppercorn & Garlic and their new Korean-Style, a juicy beef burger with soya sauce, sesame oil, apples and garlic. And for those who are looking for something a little lighter, you'll be happy to know that Compliments Balance has Lean Sirloin Beef, Extra Lean Chicken and Wild Pacific Salmon Burgers.
For this review, I chose the Prime Rib Beef, Lean Sirloin Beef and the Angus Beef Sliders. The one day I chose to barbeque them, Mother Nature decided to rain. So, instead of pan frying, I took out my stove-top grill and got cooking. The best part is that you don't have to wait for them to thaw out before cooking. They're good to go straight out of the freezer. Which means it's perfect for people like me who don't plan meals well in advance or sometimes forget to take meat out of the freezer the night before.

To hold all that flavour together, I bought some sesame-seeded Sensations by Compliments Deluxe Hamburger Buns. I also bought a bag of their mini buns for the Angus Beef Sliders. I boiled some corn on the cob and string beans, added sliced tomato and sunflower sprouts and chased it all down with a glass of Compliments White Grape Juice. The burgers were juicy and tender and the sliders are a perfect size for little hands. My husband had the lean burger which wasn't as juicy as my prime rib beef but he still liked enough to eat it all.
