Taco Bell Quad Steak Burrito

quadsteak.jpgUnbeknownst to me, Taco Bell had rolled out a new version of their steak not too long ago. This change was meant to eliminate certain issues such as the rubbery texture and overall low quality of their previous steak. I thought to myself, "What better way to try out this new steak than in their new Quad Steak Burrito?" It is purported to have four times the amount of steak as compared to the Steak Burrito Supreme, after all. To add onto that, just one burrito cost me almost as much as an entire Beefy Crunch Box. Needless to say, my expectations were somewhat high. As soon as I received my order, I realized that the burrito truly was big in size. This was undoubtedly one of the largest burritos I had ever seen from Taco Bell. Once I took my first bite, the first thing that struck me was how strong the fire-roasted salsa was. I've tried the fire-roasted salsa before; the best way I can describe it is that it tastes a lot like BBQ sauce. The only problem I had with the salsa is that it masked the flavor of just about everything else in the burrito. As for the steak, I could definitely tell that a few changes were made to it. For one, it actually tasted and felt like I was eating a real steak. I even managed to make out some gristly bits. As for the amount of steak in the burrito, I wouldn't necessarily say that it consisted of four portions, but it was still more than enough to satisfy. Overall, I thought this was a great way to sample Taco Bell's new steak recipe. If I were to order this next time though, I'd probably ask for them to hold the salsa so that I can appreciate the other flavors a bit more. Although it may be a bit on the expensive side, I'd say it's worth trying at least once.

my rule of going to taco bell: dont buy anything that costs more than $1.25.

So yeah, no thanks.
