Preparing Kansas City Strips
Coat your grill with non-stick kitchen spray before you begin to keep your steaks from sticking to the grill. Preheat your grill before placing your steaks on.
You should only turn your steaks once on the grill. Turning more often will cause the steaks to dry out.
Internal temperature for rare is 120° - 130°, medium rare is 130° - 140° and for medium is 140° - 150. You can also judge the doneness of steak by pressing the meat with your finger. Very rare meat offers little resistance, medium rare is slightly springy, and medium is firm but still springy, whereas well-done is quite firm.
Partially thaw burgers in refrigerator. Use scissors or kitchen shears to cut around the outer edge of the patties, breaking the seal. Peel off top of plastic and remove patties.
On the Grill
- Sear burgers 1 minute on each side over direct heat to seal in juices. Move to indirect heat. Grill for 6 minutes per side, checking to ensure patties are not burning. Do not press burgers with spatula. Cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, regardless of meat color.
- Preheat 5 minutes. Place burgers on grilling machine and close lid. Cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
- Set oven regulator for Broil. Preheat for 10 minutes. During broiling, the oven door on electric ranges should remain ajar; the oven door on gas ranges remains closed (consult your owner’s manual for specific broiling guidelines). Place burgers on broiler pan rack and cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, regardless of color.
