Unless you’ve had your phone, laptop, and TV switched off this entire time, chances are you’ve heard about McDonald’s newest addition to its menu–the Mushroom Pepper Steak. Maybe you’ve even tried it already and decided that it’s your new favorite thing to order at McDonald’s!
But if you haven’t tasted this creamy, beefy creation yet, here are five reasons why you should definitely order it up! Get ready because you might just find yourself heading to a nearby branch.
1. The sauce
For Filipinos, the only way the ulam-plus-kanin combo can get any better is if there’s sarsa involved. If you’re one of the many who like their rice meals smothered in sauce, then the new Mushroom Pepper Steak should make you one happy camper.
What makes the Mushroom Pepper Steak extra special is its rich pepper cream sauce that covers the patty like a warm blanket.
It has a comforting mushroom flavor to it that’s punctuated by the freshness of chives and the kick of pepper. To top it all off, you get slices of button mushrooms in there for some added texture and flavor!
Want more proof? Here’s what some looloo reviewers had to say about the sauce:
“I love that delicious creamy peppery gravy they have on it.” – Dennis O.
“Tasted pretty good. I liked it. The pepper flavor was quite pronounced so the dish really lived up to its name.” – Amyxal V.
“I like the creaminess and peppery taste.” – Jonathan R.
