Just Say No To Grilling Frozen Burgers.

Mr. Steak answers the question: “Can you grill frozen burgers?”

Thou Shall NOT grill frozen burgers

Thinking about grilling frozen burgers? Many people have asked Mr. Steak this question—can you grill frozen burgers, or how long should you grill frozen burgers—and we understand the temptation. You’re thinking that it’s fast and easy. But Mr. Steak does not recommend grilling frozen burgers on a grill. Why?

If you’ve read Mr. Steak’s 10 Commandments of Steak, you’ll know that grilling frozen burgers breaks commandment #3— Let The Steak Acclimate, which means to let the frozen meat get to room temperature before grilling for an evenly cooked steak.

These burgers were NOT frozen on the grill

This same rule holds true when grilling burgers. If you want to achieve a char on the outside and a juicy red center on the inside, you should thaw your frozen burgers in the refrigerator 24 hours before, and then set them out on the counter 1-2 hours before grilling, until your burgers get to room temperature. However, If you want to eat your burgers today and haven’t begun to thaw them in the refrigerator first, thaw them out on the counter 2-3 hours before grilling—or more, depending on the burger’s thickness—until they are thawed all the way through. Sometimes burgers will be frozen together in packs of 4 or more. In this case, it will take longer to thaw them to room temperature.

Frozen burgers cooked on a grill will burn on the outside and still be cold on the inside. This is especially true for thicker burgers, and if you’re using Mr. Steak’s high-performance grilling machines, which use infrared technology and reach 1000 degrees. Instead, try Mr. Steak’s chuck burgers or brisket burgers, delivered frozen to your door, and then thaw them, grill them the right way, and enjoy an incredible meal!

So if you’re ever caught asking yourself, “how long should you cook frozen burgers on a grill?” remember what Mr. Steak told you: Do not grill frozen burgers on the grill. Thaw, then season, then grill your burgers right. And don’t forget to use Mr. Steak’s Seasonings.

Now you may still ask, “Okay, I get that grilling frozen burgers on the grill is not recommended, but CAN you grill frozen burgers?” Yes, you can. It’s possible. But Mr. Steak will be very disappointed in you…

Meat Grades: Prime vs Choice

The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.

Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.

Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
