For the longest time, the global fast-food scene has one strict rule for beef patties: they only belong between burger buns.
But in a country like the Philippines, a meal can never be considered a proper one without our favorite grain: rice. Most of the local dishes go well with a serving of white rice and a splash of flavorful sauce or broth.
In 1995, Jollibee the country’s top fast-food chain and proud homegrown Pinoy brand brought together a fast-food favorite and a Pinoy staple to create a new classic offering: the Burger Steak. Made with 100% beef patty seasoned to suit Pinoy tastes, drizzled with a flavorful mushroom gravy (a time-tested flavor pairing used the world over: beef and mushroom), and served with white rice, the Burger Steak was an instant hit for diners looking for their kanin-and-ulam fix.
“The Jollibee Burger Steak was inspired by something that many Pinoys know to be true: a flavor-packed, saucy ulam served with steamed white rice really hits the spot,” said Cathleen Capati, Jollibee Core Category Marketing Director. “But that’s the beauty of that idea. It seemed so simple, but nobody else did that over twenty years ago. For me, Jollibee only proved that we truly know and understand the Pinoy palate.”
Today, the Burger Steak remains to be a consistent Jollibee best-seller, with hundreds and hundreds of meals sold each day in 1,000 Jollibee stores nationwide. The rich classic flavors that this dish delivers is just one reason for its enduring popularity, as the fact that it has remained very affordable for over two decades continues to attract customers, too.
“Aside from the Burger Steak delivering a truly beefy-linamnam, saucy-sarap dining experience every time, it delivers great value, too,” added Ms. Capati. “For only 50 pesos, you get delicious ulam and rice for a truly satisfying meal.”
