Campbell's Chunky Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables - Now in Microwaveable Bowls

Updated on March 12, 2011

Meaty Campbell's soup is now ridiculously easy to make

For decades, Campbell's soups have come in those iconic tin cans. They were so pretty that Andy Warhol just had to draw them, making millions of dollars in the process. Even today, people are making money selling Campbell's soup can art. Unfortunately, many bachelors who don't know the first thing about cooking had trouble with the soup can. Do you just put it on the stove and turn the heat up? Is it safe to put in the microwave? Millions of kitchen appliances and hundreds of apartment buildings have been destroyed by young men trying to figure out how to make their Campbell's soups hot.  

Campbell's has recently come up with a solution to this age old problem. The microwaveable bowl is ready to put in the microwave, hit a few buttons, wait a couple minutes, and then eat! Campbell's now sells microwaveable bowl versions of nearly all of their soup products. Single men have been saved!

My favorite Campbell's soup is the Chunky Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables. It's got all the meat I crave, along with enough vegetables to make it healthy. I generally buy these by the 8 pack and take them to work, and I have one when I want to stay in for lunch and don't feel like having Nong Shim noodles. Sometimes I'll switch things up and get the Chunky Firehouse Chili, but usually I stick to my sirloin burger. 

I also keep a years supply of these Campbell's microwaveable bowls at home, and with the microwave I put in my garage I now I have the ultimate home gym/snack area. I'll get back from my 3-mile job, nuke some Campbell's, and start my kettlebell workout while I wait for it to heat up and cool down. I'll scarf down the bowl and then get to work on my dumbbell bench presses or whatever body part I'm targeting that day. 

The Chunky Sirloin Burger has a full serving of vegetables, lots of protein, and it's actually a good source of fiber. It's low in fat and saturated fat, and is low in cholesterol. I should warn you that it does have a fair share of salt, so if you're watching your sodium intake be aware of that.  

You should probably only heat these up in microwaves that have a rotating plate. I say this because if these bowls are heated unevenly they have been known to explode, which will leave a big mess in your microwave.
