The company, that is known for having all the meats, now has a burger that is the first of its kind.
American fast food sandwich restaurant Arby’s has launched its first-ever burger made with premium American Wagyu beef.
The fast food chain officially unveiled its new “Wagyu Steakhouse Burger” on Monday and is a premium menu item that features a 6.4 ounce single patty made of 52% American Wagyu and 48% ground beef.
The meat is topped with American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and a special burger sauce. Customers can also choose to add bacon and ranch for a more indulgent flavor profile.
“Boring burgers are a fast-food staple, so Arby’s felt compelled to raise the bar with a Wagyu steakhouse burger. Instead of focusing on making billions of mediocre burgers, we’re taking a stance on high-quality meat that deserves to be cooked properly,” explained Patrick Schwing, Arby’s CMO.
“As the meat experts, we’ve spent over two years of dedicated research and development to deliver a premium burger that redefines what’s possible from a drive thru. Overdone burgers are over and done,” the executive continued.
The premiun burger is made using a “sous vide” style, which uses a vacuum-sealed pouch to slowly cook the meat in a temperature-controlled water bath, Arby’s said the patty emerges with a crispy outer edge and slightly pink center.
The burger is available to purchase at participating locations nationwide beginning May 23 and will be available through July 31. Pricing starts at $5.99.
Arby’s also recently rolled out its Diablo Dare sandwich which came in two iterations — crispy chicken or 13-hour smoked brisket.
Arby’s claimed it was the spiciest option on the market, as it included five levels of spice: ghost pepper jack cheese, fiery hot seasoning, fire-roasted jalapeños, and Diablo BBQ sauce served on a toasted red chipotle bun.
