Since it looks like no one eats normal burgers anymore, Red’s True Barbecue in England is offering a burger that features 17 types of beef! Aptly named The Holy Cow, this mammoth sandwich dwarfs your typical burger and contains a smidgen of tangy condiments.
the Holy Cow contains 2,500 calories, which is the daily calorie intake for the average adult. It also comes with fries that have been thrice cooked in beef drippings, along with a beef Ragu dipping sauce. Just incase that wasn’t enough, the Holy Cow also comes with a Bloody Mary made with a beef tomato consommé and jerky shards. And to top if all off, this beefy creation is served between a house-made pretzel bun.
According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, only a limited number of the burgers will be available on Father’s Day; just in case you wanted to gift your dad a heart attack.
I’m sure you’d love to know what kinds of beef are contained inside the Holy Cow. Between the burger, fries, and Bloody Mary, you get:
