Streak? Streak? You want streak? This stuff will probably leave a rascally mucosa-fueled lava streak in your unsuspecting toilet.
Cal Ripken Jr. and Monkton-based Roseda Beef have teamed up to bring “Ripken Gourmet Burgers” to 30 Giant Food stores in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia with plans to double the number of distribution locations soon.
Stores started selling the $9.99 boxes of four six-ounce burgers on Friday.
“We have been serving the Roseda gourmet burgers at our complex in Aberdeen for over a year and they have been a great hit with the families attending camps and tournaments there,” Ripken said in an emailed statement.
...The beef from Roseda’s cattle is processed and dry-aged for 14 days at the Baltimore facility. The dry-aging process adds taste and tenderness, Burchell said.
“Cal’s reputation obviously speaks for itself,” Burchell said. “The last thing I would want to do, having been born and raised in Baltimore my whole life, is try to interface a product with [Ripken] that somehow didn’t meet his standards of excellence.”
