The Quickest Way to Tenderize Steak – How to Tenderize Steak with a Meat Mallet

How to Tenderize Steak


The Quickest Way to Tenderize Steak - How to Tenderize Steak with a Meat Mallet
Author: 
Recipe type: Steak
 
Tenderizing steak with a meat mallet is probably the easiest way to tenderize steak. It certainly beats using enzymes and chemicals which at best produce inconsistent results. Almost every kitchen has a meat mallet, most of which have never been used. The reason for this is that no-one has ever showed you how to use it.
Ingredients
  • Steak
Instructions
  1. How hard do you hit? How long do you hit? Do you season the meat before or after tenderizing? Will the steak still look good if you beat the daylights out of it? These are all questions that this video will answer today.
  2. For this demonstration I am using sirloin steaks. The sirloin is an average cut that is certainly not revered for being tender, in the way that tenderloin is.
  3. We are going to season the meat before the tenderizing process. For the purpose of keeping things simple, I am only going to use salt and cracked black pepper. Whatever you decide to use, if it contains salt, then you have to add one extra ingredient, and that is sugar. Salt toughens meat, especially if the meat in question is not going to stand for anything longer than a few minutes before cooking it. The sugar counteracts the toughening effect of salt, with added bonuses… it also gives a wonderful crispy edge crust to meat when it is cooked and results in a rich deep flavor.
  4. Once you have seasoned both sides of the steaks, fold them in bread film of clingwrap and start with the tenderizing. This is where a bit of finesse comes in. You want to hit the meat medium to hard, certainly not hard enough to make holes in it, but hard enough to start flattening the meat out. This process breaks down the connective tissue in the flesh of the meat, resulting in a more tender steak.
  5. You also want to bash the fat cap as well as this is attached to the meat with the same connective tissue. Continue with the tenderizing until everything is uniform and the resulting steak is around half the thickness of the original.
  6. Now you are probably saying to yourself… “This is never going to look like the steak I started with when it’s cooked” --- all I can say is “hang around until the end of the video when you will see just how good it looks”.
  7. To cook the steaks, I have added 2 tablespoons of butter and a dash of oil to my pan. The pan is heated to 210c. You will see a time-lapse of the steak cooking where it will become clear how the tenderized steaks return to their original shape and size when cooked, but without the nasty tough connective tissue.
  8. Here we go…. These are only going to grill for 2 minutes per side…
  9. The steaks are a few seconds from coming out of the pan….. here is an overlay of the steaks that went into the pan, compared to the same steaks 4 minutes later. They have returned to almost exactly the same size and shape as they were before they were tenderized.
  10. Allow the steaks to rest for 2 minutes before serving.

  • 2 Large onions

  • 1Tbs Dried chilli flakes
  • 30 Eggs
Instructions
  1. In today’s episode we’re going to make spicy pickled eggs.
  2. These Easy Pickled Eggs are a delicious and healthy snack that
  3. everyone will enjoy! They make an amazing snack, make egg
  4. salads a breeze, and look awesome on a charcuterie board.
  5. In addition to this, it is a safe and practical way to preserve your
  6. eggs if you have more than you can use immediately… let’s get
  7. started.
  8. Take 30 eggs and use a needle to prick the flat end of each egg.
  9. This will allow the air-pocket to escape when the contents of
  10. the egg expand under heat. This helps prevent the shells from
  11. cracking, and gives a better formed egg once boiled. It will not
  12. totally negate the deformation of the base of the egg, but it
  13. certainly does help.
  14. Place all of the eggs in a large pot and cover them with cold
  15. water. Heat the pot over high heat until boiling, then start your
  16. timer. You want the eggs to boil for 10 minutes. Use a slotted
  17. spoon to give them gentle stir once every few minutes. This will
  18. ensure even cooking.
  19. After 10 minutes, transfer the eggs to a large bowl filled with ice
  20. cold water. Allow the eggs to stand for 30 minutes to cool
  21. completely.
  22. While the eggs cool, let’s start with the pickling brine. Slice 2
  23. large onions thinly and add them to a medium size pot, along
  24. with 2 teaspoons of Himalayan rock salt, a tablespoon of dried
  25. chilli flakes, a tablespoon of black peppercorns, 3 bay leaves, 5
  26. all-spice or pimento berries, 2 thirds of a cup of caster sugar,
  27. ml water, and 1500ml white vinegar.
  28. Heat this all until boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer the
  29. mixture for 5 minutes, then remove it from the heat.
  30. By stage the eggs have cooled and it’s time to peel them. Tap
  31. the shells around the circumference of the egg on your work
  32. surface to crack them. Peel away a little of the shell, grab the
  33. membrane and pull on this. The membrane will literally pull the
  34. shell away from the egg.
  35. Pack a layer of eggs into a large pickling jar and top this with
  36. some of the onion and spices. Pack another of eggs on top of
  37. this and continue in this fashion until all the eggs are packed.
  38. Pour the pickling brine over the eggs until it is covering the eggs
  39. completely. Put the lid on the container and allow it all to cool
  40. completely.
  41. Once cooled, transfer the eggs to your refrigerator for at least 7
  42. days before enjoying your delicious pickled eggs. This gives the
  43. brine and spices a chance to really permeate the eggs making
  44. for a memorable meal.
  45. The eggs will last for months under refrigeration.
  46. That’s it for today folks, please like, subscribe and share, and
  47. we’ll see you again real soon.

Recipe type: Chicken / Deep-Fried
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
 
Today we're going to sous vide a batch of chicken pieces. The cooked chicken will then be coated and briefly deep-fried to crispy perfection.
Ingredients
For the Chicken
  • 12 Chicken pieces
  • 30ml Caster sugar
  • 90ml Cayenne pepper
  • 15ml Garlic powder
  • 30ml Chicken stock powder
  • 30ml Vegetable stock powder
For the Coating
  • 400g All-purpose flour
  • 100g Rice flour
  • 15ml Aromat / aromex / flavormate
  • 15ml White pepper
  • 60g Cayenne pepper (NOT 60ml)
Instructions
  1. To season the chicken, you will need 30ml caster sugar, 90ml cayenne pepper, 15ml garlic powder, 30ml good quality chicken stock powder and 30ml good quality vegetable stock powder.
  2. Combine these all thoroughly.
  3. Pat the chicken pieces dry with kitchen towel and place them in a large pan.
  4. Sprinkle half of the seasoning over the pieces, flip them over and coat the reverse side with the remaining powder.
  5. Allow this to stand for 30 minutes before continuing.
  6. Fold the tops of 2 medium size vacuum bags open and place half of the chicken into each bag, making sure to keep it all in a single layer.
  7. Fold the tops of the bags back and proceed to vacuum pack the chicken, making sure to double seal the bags.
  8. Half fill your pot with water and heat it to 75c. You can use a digital pot like this one, or a dedicated sous vide pot, or even a regular pot on an induction range.
  9. Once the water has reached 75c, place the packed chicken in the water. Use a plate or a pot lid to keep the bags submerged, as they will want to float as they heat up.
  10. Set your timer for 3 hours and find something else to do to pass the time.
  11. Remove the bags from the bath and cut them open.
  12. This chicken is now perfectly cooked through, well seasoned, juicy and supremely tender.
  13. The juices from the bags can be used to make really good gravies, sauces or used as a soup base.
  14. For the coating, combine 400g all-purpose flour, 100g rice flour, 15g Aromat / Aromex or equivalent, 15ml white pepper and 60g of cayenne pepper.
  15. Mix this all until well combined.
  16. Use kitchen paper to pat the chicken pieces dry.
  17. Whisk 6 eggs in a large measuring jug.
  18. To coat the chicken, dunk a piece of chicken in the egg to wet it all over.
  19. Drop it into the flour mixture and give it a good solid coating.
  20. Transfer this to a plate and continue with the remaining pieces.
  21. Heat a large pan of oil to 180c or 350f. Carefully drop the chicken into the oil piece by piece. Depending on the size of your pan you may have to fry multiple batches.
  22. Fry yhe chicken for 4 minutes, turning halfway through.
  23. Remove the chicken from the oil, drain on kitchen paper and continue with the next batch.
  24. Here you can see just how juicy and tender the chicken is, with a super-crispy coating. This coating recipe will fry noticeably darker than most coatings as a result of the cayenne pepper. This is quite normal. The result is a deep, rich, full flavor that will have your guests coming back for more.

Recipe type: Burgers & Barbecue
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24 x 100g
 
After a short holiday following episode 600, I'm back. Tangzhou milk buns have a supremely soft, light and feathery texture all their own, however they are actually too soft to be used as burger buns. I have adjusted the original tangzhou recipe, keeping the technique, to make a firmer bun with the same light and airy texture, that makes for the perfect burger bun. In addition, these buns have a much better shelf-life, and freeze exceptionally well too.
Ingredients
  • Group 1:!
  • 1.35kg All-purpose flour
  • 15ml Salt
  • 10g Active dry yeast
  • 30ml Sugar
  • Group 2:!
  • 375ml Water
  • 75g All-purpose flour
  • Group 3:!
  • 450ml Full cream milk
  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 90ml Sunflower oil
Instructions
  1. To start, place 1.35kg of all-purpose flour in your stand mixer bowl along with 15ml of salt, 10g of active dry yeast and 30ml of sugar.
  2. Give these a quick stir to combine.
  3. Add 75g of all-purpose flour to a medium size pot and pour in 375ml of water.
  4. Use a whisk to mix until smooth.
  5. Measure out 450ml of full cream milk, 90ml of sunflower oil and beat 3 eggs. Put these aside for later.
  6. Place the pot over medium low heat and gently heat the flour water mixture. Whisk the mixture continuously.
  7. As the mixture heats up it will start to thicken. Continue whisking to keep the mixture smooth.
  8. The mixture will soon thicken to a porridge consistency, and will become slightly translucent.
  9. Remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the milk.
  10. Pour in the eggs and whisk these in.
  11. And finally, whisk in the oil.
  12. Pour this mixture into the mixing bowl on your stand mixer.
  13. Start the mixer kneading on medium slow speed, and allow this to continue kneading for 15 minutes until the dough is nice and smooth.
  14. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover with clingwrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 90 minutes until at least doubled in size.
  15. Turn the dough out onto you work surface. Do not dust the surface or dough with flour. It will not be necessary, and will actually harm the texture of the buns.
  16. Knead the dough briefly to knock any large air bubbles out.
  17. Using your scale, divide the dough into 100g portions for regular burger buns, 120g portions for large buns, and 150g potions for giant buns. I am making regular sized buns which are perfect for 100g or quarter pound patties.
  18. To form the buns, stretch the dough from the top of the portion of dough to the bottom, working around the edge of the dough.
  19. Circle the dough in your index finger and thumb and crimp the bottom of the bun together.
  20. Place the bun on the work surface, cup your hand over the bun and finish rounding it with a circular motion.
  21. Press the bun flat and transfer it to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  22. Continue with the remaining buns, leaving about a half inch of space between each one.
  23. Cover the buns loosely with clingfilm and allow the buns to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes until they are touching as they are here.
  24. minutes into this rise, start preheating your oven to 200c or 400f.
  25. Brush the buns with beaten egg and sprinkle the tops liberally with hulled sesame seeds.
  26. Bake the buns in the center of your oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden on top.
  27. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks.
  28. If we cut one of these beauties open, we see the amazing light airy, feathery texture, with excellent oven spring and an improved firmness, making these buns the perfect burger buns.

  9. Whisk 2 eggs in another bowl.
  10. Pour 475ml of soda water into the eggs and mix this briefly.
  11. Add a cup of sifted all-purpose flour and a cup of sifted rice flour to the egg soda mixture. Whisk this until smooth.
  12. Add a generous gring of salt and cracked black pepper and mix these in.
  13. Use a skewer to lift an onion ring from the marinade and dredge it in the flour.
  14. Drop this into the batter, and continue until you have coated about a dozen rings.
  15. Make sure to submerge the rings in the batter while doing this.
  16. Use the skewer to hook the rings out of the batter and drop them in the oil. Allow the rings to fry for 5 minutes, turning halfway through.
  17. The rings will be superbly crispy and lightly golden.
  18. Use a slotted spoon to lift them from the oil before continuing with the next batch of rings.
  19. When frying, make sure you oil is up to temperature, and that you don't overcrowd the pan. This will drop the temperature and will result in overly oily onion rings.
  20. Serve your creation piping hot as a snack, or accompaniment to your main course and enjoy.

The flavors of coffee and beef work very well together whether incorporated in dry rubs or bastings. Today we're going to take this marriage to a new level by making a batch of amazing coffee burger buns.
Ingredients
  • 950g Strong white bread flour
  • 60g Butter grated
  • 15ml Sugar
  • 10ml Salt
  • 10g Instant dry yeast
  • 30ml Full cream milk powder
  • 600ml Espresso, cooled to 35c
  • 1 Egg whisked with 25ml water
Instructions
  1. To start, measure out 10g instant yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar, grate 60g of butter and run 600ml of espresso through your coffee machine. Allow the espresso to cool to 35c before proceeding.
  2. Pour the espresson into a bowl and add the sugar and yeast. Give this a brief stir, cover the bowl and set this aside for 10 to 15 minutes to activate.
  3. Measure 950g of strong white bread flour into your mixer bowl.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons full cream milk powder and 2 teaspoons salt. Stir this to combine.
  5. Add 60g of grated butter.
  6. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater paddle attached.
  7. Mix the flour for about 60 seconds to cut the butter into flour.
  8. Add the yeast coffee mixture to the bowl and mix this until all of the liquid has been absorbed into the flour.
  9. Open the mixer and swap out the beater paddle for a dough hook.
  10. Close the machine and allow the dough to knead for 8 to 10 minutes on medium slow speed.
  11. You will have a beautifully smooth, soft dough that is not at all sticky.
  12. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes until doubled in bulk.
  13. Turn the dough out onto a lightly flour work surface and knead briefly to knock it down.
  14. Roll the dough into a log and divide it into 8 equal pieces for large buns, 10 for medium and 12 for regular size.
  15. Working with one piece at a time stretch the dough from the edge down to the bottom all the way around the roll.
  16. Finish it off by cupping your fingers over the roll and rounding it using a circular movement.
  17. Place the rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  18. Cover the rolls with a clean dish towel and allow these to tise again for 30 minutes.
  19. After 30 kinutes the rolls will have doubled in size.
  20. Whisk and egg with 25ml of water and brush the tops of the buns.
  21. Use a razor sharp blade to slash the tops of the buns.
  22. Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 20 minutes until golden and well risen.
  23. Remove from the oven and transfer the buns to cooling racks.

Bulk Producing Potato Croquettes at Home
Author: 
Recipe type: Potatoes
Cuisine: French
Serves: 2kg
 
Potato croquettes are an all-time favorite with their creamy inside and super-crispy shell. Made in small quantities, they are actually quite a hassle to make, especially considering that they are an accompaniment. Today we're going to make these in bulk, allowing you to freeze the croquettes and use them as required without all the hassle.
Ingredients
Main Ingredients
  • 2kg Roughly mashed potato
  • 60ml Full cream milk
  • 2 Tbs Salt
  • 1 Tsp White pepper
  • 4 Tbs Dried onion flakes
  • 4 Egg yolks, beaten
  • 6 Tbs All-purpose flour
For the Coating:
  • Eggs, beaten
  • All- purpose flour
  • Finely crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs
Special Equipment
  • Sausage stuffer
  • 300mm Ruler or strip of rigid plastic
Instructions
  1. To start, place 2kg of roughly mashed potato in you mixer bowl.
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons salt, 1 teaspoon white pepper, 4 tablespoons dried onion flakes and 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour.
  3. Combine 4 egg yolks with 60ml of full cream milk and pour this in.
  4. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached and mix the mash until totally combined. This will take about 5 minutes. You can also mix it by hand if you don't have a mixer.
  5. Attach the funnel of your choice to your sausage stuffer. I am using a 35mm funnel, but you can go with any diameter of your choice.
  6. Fill the hopper with the potato mixture making sure to press it down after each addition to avoid air pockets in the mix.
  7. Close the hopper and advance the plunger.
  8. For the next step, you will need a school ruler, or a length of reasonably rigid plastic.
  9. The potato mixture will be extruded along the plastic to make long cylinders of potato mix.
  10. Advance the mixture along the funnel until it reaches the end of the funnel.
  11. Hold the plastic under the funnel while advancing the potato, progressively moving the plastic at the same rate as the potato exits the funnel.
  12. As it nears the end of the ruler, slice the potato off clean.
  13. Roll the log of potato from the ruler into a large pan.
  14. Continue until all of the potato has been extruded. At this diameter, you will get about 2 meters of extruded potato.
  15. Cover the pans and transfer them to your freezer overnight.
  16. The following day you will need a bowl of all-purpose flour, whisked eggs, and a bowl of finely crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs. These quantities are all dependent on how much potato you processed.
  17. Take a little of the flour and sprinkle it over a couple of large platters. This is where the coated croquettes will sit waiting to be fried, and the flour will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  18. Remove the potato logs from the freezer and use a strong knife to chop these into equal lengths.
  19. Working with one portion at a time, dredge the croquette in the flour.
  20. Roll the potato in the egg to wet all of the flour.
  21. And then into the crumb to get a good solid coating all over.
  22. Transfer this this to one of the platters and continue with the remaining croquettes.
  23. To fry the croquettes, half fill a wok with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f.
  24. Carefully add the croquettes to the oil and fry them for 3 to 4 minutes. Give them a gentle stir every minute to ensure even browning. You can also par-fry for 60 seconds to set the coating, remove from the oil, cool and refreeze for super-quick croquettes in the future.
  25. Use a slotted spoon to remove the crispy croquettes from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  26. Serve the croquettes piping hot as an accompaniment to your main course.
