News: McDonald's - New Steak Breakfast Sandwiches

McDonald's is slowly rolling out steak as the third meat option for their breakfast sandwiches (the other two being bacon and sausage). The steak comes chopped and seasoned in a formed patty and is an available option on any breakfast sandwich.

According to Bloomberg News, the chain began offering the steak last month and continues to roll it out. The plan is to offer steak in roughly 9,600 of the chain’s 14,100-plus US restaurants.

Breakfast steak is something McDonald's has been playing around with for a while. They used to offer it on a bagel at some locations and have more recently been testing it in a few markets. It looks like the tests panned out since it's now available nationally.

  1. Mickey D's really needs to add a couple of low sodium options to their menu. Not everyone that goes there is 20 years old and in perfect health.

  2. Oh dat looks good. Might have 3 things I like to eat at Mickey D's. This thing and fries and Sausage Egg McMuffins.

  3. I would venture to say that most people who go there aren't in perfect health.

  4. We've had these in eastern PA for as long as I can remember, 10 years at least. It's a bit of a stretch calling it steak but I've always enjoyed it. Salty, greasy and delicious.

  5. Chopped up beef shaped into a patty is a burger not steak.

  6. If you have health issues, you should not be going to fast food restaurants. If you have health issues and you do find yourself in a fast food restaurant, you're probably not likely to choose the low-sodium option anyway.

    Studies show, however, that even for those with cardiovascular problems, salt intake does not adversely affect one's health unless you're consuming more than 7,000mg of sodium a day. Or, on the flip side, if you're not consuming enough sodium, which can cause hyponatremia and can be fatal.

  7. Wish they'd have that "steak" for their regular menu on a burger bun. I think it's pretty good.
