Charcoal steak burgers

If you're in the mood for a delicious burger, today, I am preparing charcoal steaks, to create a tender, juicy steak burger.

Generally, charcoal steaks are meant to be cooked on a charcoal grill, and I feel that they're usually best grilled to medium-rare. Because when they're cooked longer than that, they'll become leathery and tough.

Today, I'm unable to grill my charcoal steaks outside because it's too cold and raining. So, I will be preparing them in my oven. However, I will include my grilled steak recipe too. The ingredients are basically the same, except I used liquid smoking flavoring.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of charcoal steaks (mine was a package of 8)
  • ½ teaspoon of seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • A couple of pinches of pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika

For the baked recipe, sprinkle liquid smoke flavoring on the steaks before baking them.

Instructions to grill:

Prepare your charcoal grill by cleaning the grill and placing charcoal inside it. Use a little charcoal starter fluid on your coals. Allow the fluid to soak into the charcoal (for a few minutes) before lighting the grill.

Light the grill with a long matchstick. Allow the charcoal to get hot and turn gray. (Allow some time for all the fluid to burn off the charcoal completely before placing your food on the grill.)

In a spice dish, add a ½ teaspoon of seasoning salt, 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, a couple of pinches of pepper flakes, ¼ teaspoon of onion powder, ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika; combine well.

Now, sprinkle your seasoning over both sides of the charcoal steak and place the steaks on the hot grill.

Cook the bottom of your charcoal steak for two to four minutes.

Then flip the steaks and grill the other sides for about four minutes, or until nicely done to your preference.

Next, prepare your burger by overlapping two steaks into a hamburger bun. Add your favorite condiments and cheese. Serve and enjoy!

Add a ½ teaspoon of seasoning salt, 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, a couple of pinches of pepper flakes, ¼ teaspoon of onion powder, ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika into a spice dish; combine well.

Sprinkle your seasoning on both sides of the steaks. (I just sprinkle the seasoning mix on my steaks in the pan, then flip them over to season the other side.) Then add liquid smoke flavoring over each steak. (This will mimic the grilled flavor.)

Transfer your pan to a 350 degrees F oven. Bake the charcoal steaks for about eight minutes, or to your preference.

Next, prepare a steak burger by placing two steaks on a hamburger bun. Add your favorite condiments and cheese. Serve and enjoy!

Note:

You can also pan sear your charcoal steaks rather quickly in a skillet. Add a little cooking oil to your skillet, allow the pan to get hot, and cook your steaks to your preference. (Medium-rare would take about eight minutes.)

So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
