Meat Dreams Are Made of These

It all starts with quality. The Certified Angus Beef® brand was the first, and it’s the only Angus brand owned by the American Angus Association® and its rancher members. To become Certified Angus Beef, cuts are selected from a superior supply of Angus cattle that meet ten exacting quality specifications. That means naturally better flavor and juiciness in every bite. When you choose Certified Angus Beef for your burger patties, you’ll know they are sourced from only “A” grade maturity, grain-finished cattle. You can be sure your burgers will be exceptionally flavorful, incredibly tender and naturally juicy.

A Burger Consumers Love

Consumers crave premium beef and rank the Certified Angus Beef ® brand as the highest quality of any grade or brand of beef, ranking above USDA Prime and Choice. A nationwide study* shows that 95% of consumers recognize the Certified Angus Beef brand logo – more than double the closest ranking brand. Meaning, you can take advantage of this consumer-friendly brand on your menus.
Create a classic burger in your signature style, but always start with Certified Angus Beef. Contact your Shamrock Foods Sales Representative to see how Certified Angus Beef delivers consistent flavor in a convenient and decadent burger.

  • 1 1/2 pounds Certified Angus Beef ground beef
  • 6 slices Cobblestreet Mkt.® American cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Katy’s Kitchen® Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Katy’s Kitchen Ground Black Pepper
  • 4 Brickfire Bakery® Brioche Buns


  1. Cut each cheese slice evenly into 4 squares; arrange in 4 stacks with 6 slices each.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef, Worcestershire, garlic salt and pepper; mix by hand.
  3. Form beef mixture into 8 thin patties on a large sheet pan. With your thumb, press an indented well in the center of 4 patties and put the portioned cheese in the wells. Encase the cheese with the remaining 4 patties, hand forming your burger to a uniform shape with sealed edges. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  4. Grill or pan sear over high heat 3 minutes per side. Transfer to 375°F oven to finish cooking to an internal temperature of 160°F (5 to 8 minutes). Remove from grill and rest at least 3 minutes for cheese to set.
