Arby's Tests New Wagyu Blend Burger

Arby's looks into adding a burger to the menu with the limited-time test of the new Wagyu Blend Burger at select locations in several markets, including Orlando/Daytona, FL; Flint, MI; and Lafayette, IN according to this Reddit thread.

Arby's Wagyu Blend Burger features a hamburger patty made with a blend of 52 percent American wagyu beef and 48 percent sirloin (it should be noted that wagyu, which literally means "Japanese cow," refers to a Japanese breed of cattle, while sirloin is a cut of beef) that looks to be served with cheese, tomato, red onion, crinkle-cut pickles, shredded lettuce, and some sort of special/secret-type sauce on a toasted bun.

Wagyu beef is typically prized for its high degree of marbling compared to other beef although if you're grinding it up for hamburger patties, you could argue that all that fat gets distributed all around the same as any other beef. On the other hand, it's possible a coarser ground patty made with wagyu would have a more even distribution of fat due the marbling.

The Wagyu Blend Burger is priced at $5.99 each ($8.49 for a combo meal).

The test is slated to run for 4 weeks, while supplies last.

It seems unlikely that Arby's is installing grills to cook the burgers, which leaves them to either be cooked/heated in the oven or microwave.
