By Kansas City Steak Company Tags : entertaining,  recipe 

From the satisfying sizzle of the grill to the mouthwatering burgers and steaks cooked to perfection, there’s nothing like a cookout to bring everyone together.

Cookout Burger

Great cookouts feature great entrees like steaks and burgers. High-quality beef, complementary seasonings and grilling techniques are all necessary components for a winning cookout burger.

Begin with high-quality steakburgers that contain enough fat to give your burgers great flavor. Our juicy Classic Steakburgers are formed from premium corn-fed beef and are a guaranteed hit.

Add seasonings, but remember the goal is to complement the natural flavor of the beef without overpowering it.

Cookout Burger Recipes

There’s more to crafting a great cookout burger than simply the burger patty itself! Your choice of toppings can make or break any burger. Take some time to experiment and try new cookout burger recipes. Choose a recipe (or two) that strikes your fancy, then build out the rest of your cookout menu around those entrees.

Cookout Food

Cookout food is more than just burgers and hot dogs. While those can be a simple go-to option, broaden your cookout repertoire and consider the delicious options available for your dining pleasure. Surf and turf, grilled chicken and steaks are all crowd-approved cookout food options with plenty of variety.

Cookout Food Ideas

When choosing which steaks you’ll serve at your cookout, it is tempting to choose one particular cut for everyone at your table. However, if you want to take your cookout food to the next level, it’s best to opt for some variety. The Essential Duo Junior is a premium steak package which includes everything you need for an impressive steak cookout: Filet Mignon, Top Sirloin, Ribeyes and Kansas City Strips.

Cookout Menus

There’s no rule about cookout menus that says you can’t serve a variety of expertly grilled meats to your guests, so why not mix things up a little? Surf and turf is a crowd pleaser for a reason! Try North Atlantic Lobster Tails or Maryland Style Crab Cakes.

Cookout Menu Ideas

Our All American Cookout Special Value Pack is a great choice for your next cookout, featuring T-Bone Steaks, Classic Steakburgers, Boneless Chicken Breasts and All-beef Jumbo Hot Dogs.
