Normally, the saying that “everything is bigger in Texas” is an undeniable fact when it comes to food – especially in the beef department. Just last week, the Texas Rangers revealed the enormous Darvicious Burger, in honor of pitcher Yu Darvish.
Not to be outdone, the Washington Nationals have unveiled this 8 pound delight – the Strasburger. The jalapeno topped monster is named after – you guessed it – second year phenom pitcher, Stephen Strasburg.
NBC Washington, D.C. provides the full description of this culinary creation:
Weighing eight pounds total (including toppings), the StrasBurger is a monstrous all beef burger (combination of ground brisket, chuck and short ribs). The burger is served on a large burger bun with our secret sauce, American cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions, pickle chips and served with a cone basket of fresh cut fries and a pitcher of your choice of soft drink. This signature dish is the perfect entrée to share at this affordably-priced family restaurant.
If I had to guess, I’d say this isn’t the first time Stephen has had his name twisted for a pun. And if I ever get sick of my arteries, I’ll be sure to clog them with the Strasburger.
