Summer is coming to an end, and it's time to bid farewell to lazy days and beach trips. But don't worry, because we've got the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer and welcome the new school year: a WILD back-to-school send-off! And what better way to do it than with mouthwatering Wilders Wagyu beef?
What to Cook
Let's face it, burgers and steaks are the ultimate crowd-pleasers. They're juicy, flavorful, and oh-so-satisfying. Plus, they're incredibly versatile, so you can cater to everyone's taste buds. Whether you like your burger piled high with toppings or prefer a perfectly cooked steak, this dinner party is sure to please everyone in your family.
Grilling Tips and Tricks
Now, let's get down to business: grilling those burgers and steaks to perfection. Here are some tips and tricks to ensure your meats are cooked just the way you like them:
1. Start with quality meat: Choose Wilders fresh, high-quality ground beef for your burgers or some of our beautifully marbled steaks for that melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. We're having a BOGO FREE sale on any sized NY Strips right now!
2. Season generously: Don't be shy with the seasonings! Sprinkle your burgers and steaks with a mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and any other spices you love.
3. Get the grill (or pan) hot: Preheat your grill to high heat to achieve those beautiful grill marks and a delicious charred flavor. If you've chosen one of our prime steaks (Ribeye, Tenderloin, or NY Strip) we recommend using a cast iron skillet so you don't lose natural, buttery fats and juices.
4. Timing is everything: Cook your burgers for about 4-5 minutes per side for a juicy, medium-rare patty. For steaks, the cooking time will depend on the thickness and desired doneness.
5. Let it rest: After grilling, let your burgers and steaks rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more flavorful bite.
Accompaniments and Sides
No burger or steak dinner is complete without some tasty accompaniments and sides. Here are a few ideas to take your meal to the next level:
1. Build-your-own burger bar: Set up a table with an array of toppings and condiments, such as crispy lettuce, juicy tomatoes, tangy pickles, melty cheese, and a variety of sauces. Let your guests customize their burgers to their heart's content.
2. Grilled veggies: Add some color and freshness to your meal by grilling a medley of vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, and corn on the cob.
3. Classic sides: Serve up some classic sides like crispy french fries, creamy coleslaw, or a refreshing green salad.
Finally, let's end the evening on a sweet note. Whip up a simple yet delicious dessert that will leave everyone with a smile on their face. How about some grilled peaches topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce? It's the perfect combination of smoky, sweet, and creamy.
So there you have it, the ultimate back-to-school, summer send-off dinner with Wilders! Gather your friends and family, fire up the grill, and enjoy a memorable evening filled with laughter, good food, and the perfect farewell to summer. Cheers to a fantastic school year ahead!
