Burgers. Whether sizzling on the BBQ on a hot summer’s day or lathered with ketchup and chips during a cosy night in; we all love them. The dictionary definition of a burger is a flat meat sandwich; this evokes an unappetising and dismal image. However, here at KQF our burgers are anything but unappetising, with recipes inspired by Thai, Indian, and South African cuisines.

Our burgers will take your taste buds on a flavoursome journey around the world. Made using KQF’S authentic recipes, we use the finest ingredients, and an exceptional blend of herbs, spices and seasonings. As well as being much bigger, we offer a higher meat content than ordinary high street burgers. Our succulent Chicken, Lamb and Beef burgers serve to create a tasty, flavourful and exclusive experience for all.

Our burgers are halal certified by the HMC and are made under a quality assurance system that has achieved a grade A rating under the British Retail Consortium standard for food. This reflects the pride we share on the quality, integrity, and taste of our foods, which in turn makes our burgers so delicious, and successful amongst all customers. If you are looking for a scrumptious burger experience, which will leave your taste buds tantalized, satisfied and craving for more, then look no further than our KQF burgers to deliver a delicious culinary experience.

A perfect summer BBQ of your own!

July 20, 2016 at 9:12 am

BBQs are what summer is all about, right? At KQF, we have selected the best BBQ menu you can have to make your daygo without a hitch – A perfect summer BBQ of your own!

KQF Halal SausagesSausages

Sausages are a specialty at the KQF, with flavours that blend moderate heat from the chilli as well as hints of onion, garlic and peppers. Pick up a variety at our KQF online store, grab some buns and toppings, and make your own hot dogs.

Why It’s Good for Groups of All Sizes: Our customers loves to throw sausages on the grill because they’re low-maintenance, easy to share, and a total crowd-pleaser. Have a few going on the grill as the afternoon or evening progresses and everyone will be well-fed and happy.
How to Cook: Avoid burst links by grilling sausages over medium-low, indirect heat. Turn occasionally until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes, then move to the hotter side of the grill to crisp. Let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Pro Tip: Always get a few more than you think you need as everyone will eat it.

KQF Halal BurgersBurgers

What screams BBQ more than burgers? Find a butcher you trust, order freshly ground meat, and you will never, ever go wrong with a burger. We like ours with 55% meat in our Classic range to 90% meat in our Gourmet range, which yields a juicy burger that won’t cause flare-ups on the grill when excess grease hits the coals.

A variety of burgers with mild to hot level in spice, all your guests are going to walk away super satisfied. And the best part is you don’t need to do anything to it, grill it to medium-rare, put a slice of cheese on it, and it is ready to serve.

Why It’s Good for Groups of All Sizes: The ultimate crowd-pleaser cooks quickly, doesn’t need to be grilled at different temperatures.  Your guests are going to walk away super satisfied. Plus, you just need to add salt and pepper on it, grill it to medium-rare and put a slice of cheese on it.
How to Cook: Grill burgers over high heat until lightly charred on bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip and grill about 4 minutes longer for medium. Let stand for 3 minutes before serving.
Pro Tip: Before you throw your patties on the grill, make a small indentation in the centre of each burger with your thumb. This keeps the burger from puffing up as it cooks.

KQF Halal KebabsKebabs

Nothing says summer like grilling delicious kebabs. There’s no mistaking the mouth-watering aroma of fresh ingredients sizzling over a fiery grill. Best of all, whether you choose chicken,  lamb or beef, kebabs are a cinch to prepare and cook. They’re great for barbeque parties and our British-made Classic Kebabs make a delicious starter. They combine high quality meats with authentic spice blends to deliver intense flavours. Check our wide range of our frozen and halal kebabs online.

Why It’s Good for Groups of All Sizes: All our halal kebabs can make a delicious starter, a fabulous finger-food and a wonderful accompaniment to summer BBQ.  Most kebabs make a delicious dish on their own, but for a full meal, consider serving with a side that pairs well with the ingredients on the kebab.
How to Cook: For a delicious outer “sear” on your kebabs, it’s important to have a nice hot grill before you place your kebabs on it. For gas grills, this is easy – simply set the grill’s burner(s) to a medium level, close the grill, and allow it to heat up. For charcoal grills, this is a little trickier – you’ll want to light the charcoal and allow it to blaze freely until the flames die down and the briquettes ash over and emanate an orange glow.
Pro Tip: If the meat is very pink on the inside, bleeds reddish juices, or has an inside that resists cutting, it needs to cook longer. Look for the classic signs of doneness – clear juices, lack of a pink interior, ease of cutting.

Useful Tip: Remember to let the meat rest first before serving

When meat comes off the grill it needs to rest for at least 5 minutes and it’s very smart to “tent” it in foil, rather than wrapping it. If you let a burger rest the juices will reabsorb into the meat and make it juicier, more tender and more flavoursome.

Few essential tips for BBQ:

The Day Before the Barbecue

  • Do some last-minute shopping. Get a sufficient supply of ice, condiments, drinks, meats and other perishable foods.
  • Prep the meat. Get our marinated meat to save time on marination and store them in the fridge.
  •  Make last-minute dishes. Prepare and store all the perishable foods you’ll be serving at the party.

The Day of the Barbecue

  • Finish decorating. Make the final adjustments to your décor and seating arrangements. Organize cups, plates, utensils, salads, side dishes, condiments, etc., on a buffet-style table. Make sure any food items are covered to protect them from heat and bugs!
  • Set up the drinks station. Fill your cooler with ice and stock it with plenty of drinks so they’re nice and cold by the time your guests arrive. Remember to frequently replenish the ice supply throughout the day.
  •  Prepare fresh appetizers. Cut and prep fresh fruits and veggies and keep them in the fridge until guests arrive.
  • Fire up the grill. Set up your grill and start cooking! Keep an eye on the meats and ensure they’re being grilled at the proper grilling temperatures.
  •  Enjoy! Spend the day having fun with your family and friends!

Leicester Roadshow – Gourmet Range

April 28, 2015 at 11:24 am

In the food business, getting direct customer feedback is extremely important, particularly when you’re launching products such as our new Exotic range of gourmet half-pounder beef burgers. That’s why we were very pleased to work with one of our long-standing clients to organise a customer roadshow in Leicester.

Held on Saturday 25th April between 12 noon and 4pm the event took place at the premises of Mr Burger, a well-respected retailer and wholesaler of quality frozen foods.  We took the five variants of the Exotic burgers and staff gave out free samples for shoppers to try.

Leicester-Roadshow-Gourmet-burgers

The five flavours in the Exotic range include:

  • Mexican
  • Moroccan
  • Portuguese Piri Piri
  • South African
  • Thai

One of the most interesting findings was that there appear to be regional differences in terms of customer preference. From taster sessions in Lancashire, at the KQF Superstore and elsewhere, the most popular flavours have tended to be the Thai-style and the Moroccan beef burgers. In Leicester, however, more customers opted for the spicier flavours of the South African and Mexican varieties.

It’s good to see that all the new flavour blends have been met with a positive reaction but it’s still too early to see whether a firm national favourite is emerging. More free taster sessions will probably take place over the summer, so if you’d like to take part, please check our Twitter and Facebook pages for details of forthcoming events.
