‘Strasburger’ At Ballgame Not Such a Great Idea

If you make it to a baseball game in our nations’ capital to watch the Washington Nationals, you might want to skip by the Red Porch Concession stand that sells the “Strasburger”. It’s a monstrous sandwich named after the Nationals young pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, and it is called the “Strasburger”.  It might appear tasty, but oh, the calories!

If you can believe it, the “Strasburger” is eight pounds of ground brisket, chuck and short ribs on a bun with secret sauce, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and pickles. N o that was not a typo, it really is eight pounds.

Health professionals are concerned.

A registered dietician surmised that it contains 8,000-10,000 calories, 600-700 grams of fat, 200-300 grams of saturated fat and 2,500-3,000 milligrams of sodium. Eating just one-fourth  of the burger would meet or exceed one person’s caloric needs for an entire day.

Would you eat a Strasburger, or should we say, Strasbomb?
