I had a couple of gift cards for Trader Joe's, so I took advantage and just bought a bunch of things I normally wouldn't get on my run-of-the-mill grocery run. This included creme brulee, giant chocolate Parisian macarons, ice cream, lemonade and...Kobe burgers.
I've only tried a Kobe burger once in my life, and it was one of the best things I'd ever tasted (I'm such a hamburger fiend!). I've been cooking more lately, so I offered to make Kobe burgers for my parents, complete with Trader Joe's garlic fries (in the frozen section).
They were cooked medium well (I should get a meat thermometer. My method to finding out if something is cooked involves a lot of poking and peeking) and let my parents choose the cheese they wanted. I had cheddar, bacon, lettuce, and a little bit of mayo (pretty traditional). I also used the honey wheat hamburger buns from Trader Joe's. The Kobe patties themselves are very good--juicy and rather large, actually. They may seem a little pricey (two frozen patties for about $6), but it's less expensive than having one at a restaurant.
And check out the garlic fries! For frozen french fries, they were exceptionally crispy and flavorful.
Yum. So worth it.
