It is important to learn how to grill frozen burgers because this may be an excellent way to save time and money when it comes to preparing healthy meals. Yes, you certainly can place frozen burgers on the outdoor grill without facing food-borne illness. However, just as with cooked meat, it will take more time to properly prepare the frozen burgers if they are frozen. The following are some tips for grilling frozen burgers.
If you have purchased a gas grill, you should not attempt to thaw them on your own. A gas grill has a sealed cooking compartment where the food cooks while it is in the tank. In order to use the cooked meat inside the gas grill, you need to remove the cooked meat from the compartment and then defrost it before cooking it on the gas grill. Once you defrost the frozen meat, you should place it in the same cooking compartment that you placed the cooked meat in. You may also want to thaw it in the refrigerator if you have one. However, using the refrigerator may cause some contamination issues.
One good idea is to thaw the frozen meat in cold water. This method works very well because the fish meat will retain more liquid than cooked meat. However, if you do not have access to cold water, simply place the cooked fish pieces in a large bowl filled with cold water. Do not use ice cubes because they will only cause the water to warm, which will make the pieces retain even less liquid.
The next step is to preheat the oven or the grill. Place all the fish pieces in the freezer until you are ready to begin the second step. Line a baking sheet with paper towels to prevent them from dripping onto the grilling surface. Once you have placed the prepared fish into the preheated oven, set the temperature to the lowest setting.
Once the meat has reached the proper temperature, remove it from the oven and place it on your heated bbq grill. Using a spatula, flip the frozen burger patties over so that they are right side up. You will need to perform this step several times to ensure even cooking.
In order to properly cook the buns in your grill, you need to create an environment that will simulate the moisture found in a normal barbecue. The first thing that you will want to do is place a few tablespoons of butter into a nonstick frying pan. Once the butter begins to melt, place your hamburgers onto the hot buns. If your hamburgers are done, they will be golden brown and delicious!
