Juicy, flame-grilled beef patties, loaded with cheddar, bacon and your favorite toppings, all piled on a brioche bun. It’s easy to see why this favorite tops our list of 4th of July recipes. Serve with a frosty beverage, a good old-fashioned potato salad and all the feel-good memories you can handle.
Add a little green to your red, white and blue celebration with tender flat iron steaks topped with fresh, flavorful chimichurri. Marinade your steaks overnight with dried wild mushrooms, garlic, red wine, salt and pepper, then grill to perfection and top with Chef Graham’s delicious homemade chimichurri recipe. Serve with roasted fingerling potatoes and colorful grilled vegetable kabobs for an impressive presentation!
Add a little surf to your summertime turf with Grilled Shrimp Kebobs with Ginger Lime Vinaigrette. Drizzle plump jumbo shrimp with a fresh vinaigrette of soy sauce, garden fresh garlic and ginger, sesame oil, white wine vinegar, lime juice, peanut oil and black sesame seeds, then grill on skewers for party perfection. Serve alongside your favorite steak; we recommend a butter-tender filet mignon or well-marbled ribeye steak.
Perfect pork burgers consist of ground pork, buttermilk, seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, ground oregano and minced onion. Form thick patties, then sear on the grill and cook over direct heat. Top with Crazy Good KC Style BBQ Sauce and your favorite slaw, or try our customer favorite Creamy Coleslaw recipe. Serve with exclusive Kansas City Steak Fries and enjoy the patriotic explosion of fresh flavor!
If you’re partial to a little more “fire” in your flavors, look no further! Delicious Kansas City Strip Steaks are marinated overnight with Worcestershire sauce, your favorite hot sauce, horseradish, ketchup, black pepper and salt, then grilled over medium to perfection. Serve with a cool, crisp garden-fresh salad, loaded with veggies. Just one bite will show you why this fiery little option made our list of easy 4th of July recipes – and we bet it will make yours, too!
Corn-fed Midwest beef and Sweet Vidalia® Onions are the only two ingredients here, and with good reason. Choose between 4.5 or 8 ounce patties, and let us do the legwork while you man the grill. Cook from frozen or thawed by searing on the grill, then cooking over indirect heat until the desired temperature is reached. Serve on a hearty bun with fresh toppings and your choice of side dish. Top off your meal with Lemon Cream Cake or a Key Lime Pie and enjoy. Share with someone who loves a good steak and tell us your favorite 4th of July tradition in the comments below!
