August Kitchen's J-Burger Seasonings - Review (and a Giveaway)

About August Kitchen (from the website)

Why not fresh ingredients?

We were seasoning our burgers with dry, processed powders and decided to give the real stuff a try. We were amazed at the difference it made in our burgers. They tasted delicious and so moist. We then tried our mix with other ground meat dishes like chili and meatloaf and realized our seasoning made any ground meat dish taste better but it required so much chopping and prepping.
After constant requests for J-Burgers, having to make extra mix for friends and family to take home, and requests for the recipe, our friends and family encouraged us to take the recipe and bottle it.
We’ve taken our homemade recipe and shared it with everyone looking for that gourmet meal without all the work.
Turn your ordinary burgers, meatloaf, chili, etc into gourmet and your friends and family will thank you.

I was lucky to be able to review 2 flavors of burger sauces:

Original Onion - Made with real chopped onion … not onion powder … herbs and spices.
 Chipolte & Onion: Sweet onion and the rich, smokey flavor of Chipotle … Made w/ real onion and chipotle … no powders, no substitutions.

My Review:

What exactly is a burger sauce? Well before this review I was not quite sure? It is a delicious unique sauce!
I’m always looking for new and improved ways of making dinner more fun and flavorful. I was interested in trying J-Burger ( seasoning, because it’s not your ordinary seasoning. When I think of seasoning I think of dry seasoning, J-Burger isn’t dry, not at all. It’s a liquid seasoning that you add to ground beef to make it really shine.  Just a few spoonful’s is all you need to make your beef go from blah to brilliant!

Beef has a flavor but it’s not all that memorable, you need spice to make things interesting. Last Sunday we decided to make chili we added the chipotle & onion flavor seasoning to the ground beef after it browned a few more ingredients and that was it. Simple recipe, very simple, and the taste of the chili was off the charts, you can really taste the difference. It was a smoky sweet flavor and it made our bland ground beef into a flavorful treat. I like to make meatloaf and I’m dying to add the J-Burger seasoning to my meatloaf, it really does make ground beef more than just beef.

here is the recipe I made:

J-BURGER Chipotle Chili

Preparation Time: 2 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Serves: 4
1-1/2 lbs ground beef, chicken or turkey
5 tablespoons of J-BURGER Chipotle & Onion

Stir to combine. Add tomato sauce and beans and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with chips, shredded cheese, guacamole, or sour cream.

I would first use it for burgers, but I am always in the kitchen so I would make up new menu items and add some spice to others.
