Easy Quick N’ Eat Angus Beef Recipe
If you haven’t noticed, I’m big on beef!
I want to share the easy way I cook and serve these Quick N’ Eat Angus Beef Patties from S&R. This is my cheater’s way to a delicious, quick, easy yet sort of gourmet meal! We buy these Quick N’ Eat Angus Beef Patties whenever we find them on sale. They are very easy to prepare whenever we need a quick ulam, snack or baon. Yup, because there are crazy days when you just need to open the refrigerator and want to find something to cook, FAST!
Each box has a pack of 12 fully-cooked, frozen patties in a ziploc bag. The bag is easy to reseal after I take the number of patties that I need. The beef patties don’t stick to each other, amazingly, even without any paper in between. And the best part is, there’s no need to defrost them!
Depending on how many people are going to be joining dinner, bringing baon, or wanting a snack, I just get as many frozen patties as I need. The patties are big, and for a meal for 5 people, I can just cook 4 patties. We have these with other viands (ulam), so we don’t get one patty per person (it’s too much). We serve it family-style, where we just take maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of a patty for each person, and get more if we want more.
The first thing I do is prepare the onion confit:
Slice a lot of onions! As many onions as you want! I’d go with 6-8 medium-sized onions. The onions shrink as you cook them so you really won’t end up with a lot.
In a pan, melt some butter (I used garlic butter because that’s what we have a lot of), add the onions, lower the heat to about medium, and just let it cook. That’s it. It takes about 10-20 minutes and you have to keep stirring it every few minutes to keep it from burning and to let the onions cook evenly, but that’s it. Easy!
When the onions have started to brown (take care not to burn the onions!), just season with a little salt and pepper. I cheat and add a little sugar, too. Give it a quick stir so all the flavors are evenly distributed, turn off the heat, and it’s done!
Cooking the Quick N’ Eat Angus Beef Patties
You need a pan with a lid. I don’t like the results when heating this in the microwave, and I’m too lazy to take out and clean all the grilling paraphernalia, so skillet cooking it is!
Heat the pan (medium to low heat), put the frozen patties on the skillet. I can fit 2 patties in my skillet. Pour 1/4 cup of water. Cover the pan, preferably with a glass lid so you can see how the cooking is going! This seems to make it cook faster and more evenly, and gives a juicier burger.
After 3 minutes, turn the patties to heat the other side.
After each patty is heated through, I plate it and put a slice of cheese over it, then top them all with the onion confit! We prefer to eat this with rice, but you can opt to serve this with hamburger buns!
I find these beef patties convenient, easy to cook and very versatile. Instead of onion confit, next time, I might try it with a teriyaki sauce. Or maybe actually make a hamburger with cilantro mayo or honey mustard mayo!
