Chef T's Magic Powder - for Incredible Burger Patties, Steaks, Chicken, Pork, Stews & Soups!!!
Recipe type: Seasoning / Rubs / Spices
Today we're going to make a batch of my magic powder. This amazing stuff is primarily for making the most incredible burger patties, however it can be used just as successfully to flavor roasts, stews, soups and really just about anything. After making the powder, I will demonstrate how to use it to make the burger patties, and a superbly tender roast spatcock chicken. The theory behind how and why this powder works so well will covered in another episode in the near future. Although you can naturally dry the ingredients for the powder in trays, it does help to have a food dryer with multiple racks.
  • 80g Fresh coriander leaves (with stems)
  • ½ Red Pepper
  • ½ Yellow Pepper
  • 30ml Tabasco sauce
  • 8 Portabello mushrooms (or procini)
  • 30ml Onion Flakes
  • 15ml Lemon pepper
  • 15ml +15ml Cornstarch
  • 15ml Salt
For the Burger Patties
  • 7.5ml Magic powder per 100g ground beef
  • 10ml Water per 100g ground beef
For the Chicken
  • Magic powder
  • Roasting vegetables of your choice
  • 1.8kg Chicken
  1. To start, place 80g of fresh coriander, including the stems into drying racks.
  2. Cut a half yellow pepper and a half red pepper into strips.
  3. Place these in a mixing bowl, pour in 30ml or 2 tablespoons of Tabasco sauce and toss the peppers until everything is coated.
  4. Cut 8 portabello mushrooms into slices. You can also use porcini mushrooms which work just as well.
  5. Place the sliced mushrooms and peppers into drying trays and stack these on your dryer for 36 to 48 hours until everything is well desiccated.
  6. To make the powder from all the dried ingredients, you will to measure 30ml or 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes, 15ml or a tablespoon of lemon pepper, 15ml of salt and 15ml of cornstarch.
  7. Place all of the ingredients from the dryer on a chopping board and chop them roughly to make them more manageable for your spice grinder.
  8. Fill your spice grinder to the top with some of this mixture and machine it until reasonably fine.
  9. During the machining the mixture will break down considerably leaving space to add more of the mixture.
  10. Add more of the mixture along with some of the cornstarch.
  11. Machine it again, and carry on adding more of the dried ingredients along with a little cornstarch, until all of the ingredients from the dryer have been ground.
  12. Place this in a bowl, and add the salt, onion flakes, lemon pepper and remaining cornstarch. Mix this together well.
  13. Put the mixture back into the grinder in batches and machine each batch until fine.
  14. Place the fine mixture in a jug and add a further 15ml of cornstarch and mix this in. The cornstarch is used as an anti-caking agent.
  15. Transfer the magic powder to an air-tight sprinkle bottle with large holes and you're ready to go.
  16. To make your magic burger patties you will need 7.5ml or 1.5 teaspoons of magic powder for every 100g of ground beef as well as 10ml or 2 teaspoons of water for each 100g of beef.
  17. Place this all in your stand mixer with the dough hook attached and allow this to mix for 7 minutes on medium low speed, until well emulsified.
  18. Press the burger patties and grill as normal.
  19. Make up your burgers and enjoy. Here we see a double cheese burger using my magic patties and the McDonald's burger we made 2 episodes back.
  20. For the chicken, cut the bird down through breast bone and flatten it out. Place it in a large roasting pan.
  21. Sprinkle the magic powder liberally over the chicken and fill up any space in the pan with the roasting vegetables of your choice.
  22. Pour in 400ml of chicken stock and cover the pan with foil.
  23. Bake the chicken in a pre-heated oven at 200c or 400f for 45 minutes.
  24. Remove the pan from the oven, remove the foil from the pan and return it to the oven uncovered for a further 35 minutes.
  25. Increase the heat to 250c or 480f for a further 10 to 15 minutes until the chicken is crispy and golden. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

How to Make Square Burger Patties - Perfect Burger Patty Production with No Specialized Equipment!!!
Recipe type: Burgers
Making square burger patties takes a whole load of hassle out of making patties for large crowds of people. No specialized equipment is required and the whole process is foolproof.
  • 75ml Onion flakes
  • 15ml Salt
  • 7.5ml White pepper
  • 1.4kg Good quality ground beef
  • 10% Weight of meat in liquid - Worcestershire sauce / Light soy sauce / Beef stock / Water
  1. Place the dried onion flakes, salt and white pepper into your spice grinder.
  2. Zap these until you have a fine powder.
  3. Place the ground beef in the bowl of your stand mixer and add the seasoning.
  4. You also need to add 10% of the weight of the meat in liquid. I am using Worcestershire sauce, however you can use light soy sauce, stock, or even plain water.
  5. Attach the dough hook, close the mixer and switch it on. Start slow and gradually increase the speed to medium. The meat must mix for 8 minutes. It will try to climb the sides of the bowl while mixing. Use something to help it back down to the bottom of the bowl.
  6. During the mixing process, the salt reacts with the protein in the meat causing it emulsify. This is what keeps the patties together when they are formed.
  7. Line a 10 inch by 14 inch baking sheet with cling-wrap.
  8. Tip the meat mixture into the pan and flatten it out.
  9. Pull another length of cling-wrap over the top of the pan.
  10. Use your rolling pin to roll and compress the ground beef into the tray until it is level with the edges. Any excess meat will simply squeeze out from the edges and can be cleared in the next step.
  11. Place the pan in your freezer for 30 minutes to firm up.
  12. Turn the slab of beef out onto a large chopping board.
  13. Trim away any excess meat.
  14. Keeping the cling-wrap in place, cut the slab into 12 equal squares for 100g patties or 6 pieces for giant 200g patties, as I am doing here.
  15. At this point, these can be wrapped and frozen, or grilled.
  16. Using a heavy pan or skillet over medium high heat, add 20g of butter.
  17. When the butter is sizzling, add the patties and grill them for 5 to 6 minutes per side until nicely charred and caramelized both sides.
  18. And there it is... the easiest way to make perfectly uniform, tasty patties with an amazing texture that will not fall apart, even on the barbecue.

  3. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the meat and mix this in thoroughly.
  4. Transfer the pan to your freezer for 45 minutes to firm up. This is absolutely necessary as it aids your grinder to get a good clean grind with no fat smearing, resulting in a much better texture of sausage.

  10. Crank the stuffer until the meat reaches the end of the funnel, then twist off the casing.
  11. Apply gentle pressure to the casing at the end of the funnel and start cranking the handle.
  12. When the end of the casing is almost reached, stop cranking, remove the casing from the funnel and twist off the end.
  13. Continue with this process until all of the filling has been used.
  14. To make up individual sausages, crimp the sausage between your thumb and forefinger.
  15. Twist the sausage a few times, then snip it off in the center of the twisted section. Continue until all of the sausages are formed.
  16. Wrap the sausages and transfer them to your refrigerator overnight for the flavors to fully develop before cooking and serving.
  17. To cook the sausage, fry them gently in butter over medium heat until golden on all sides.
  18. Serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.

Mexican Hellfire Burgers - Headstands in the Shower - Seriously Hot Burgers!!!
Recipe type: Burgers
Cuisine: Mexican
Today's episode holds something really special for those who love hot and spicy food. These burgers will grow hair on a woman's chest and almost certainly have you doing headstands in the shower. The recipe for the Mexican spice blend is included in the printable recipe for the burgers.
  • 450g Ground beef
  • 450g Ground pork
  • 60ml Mexican spice blend (see below)
  • 6 Giant burger buns
  • 3 Large pickled jalapenos
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced tomato
  • Fresh cilantro / coriander
How to make Mexican Spice Blend
  • 15ml Cumin seeds
  • 15ml Dried coriander leaves
  • 15ml Paprika
  • 5ml Dried oregano
  • 5ml Cayenne pepper (mild) / 15ml (medium) / 25ml (hot)
  • 5ml Garlic granules
  • 10ml Salt
  • (Machine these all until fine in your spice grinder)
  1. Place the beef mince and pork mince in a mixing bowl and add the Mexican spice mix.
  2. Massage the spice into the meat thoroughly.
  3. Use your patty press to form the patties. I am making 160g patties, but you can make them any size you prefer. If you don't have a patty press, weigh the meat into portions and form them by hand.
  4. I have giant burger buns, and to match the bun size I am going to press the patties further between cling-wrap. Once at this size, you really want to make a deep indentation in the center of each patty. This prevents the patty from deforming when it is cooked.
  5. If you're following the same weight patty as I am using, press them out to a thickness of 10mm or just short of a half inch.
  6. Put the patties aside while you slice the pickled jalapeños and tomatoes.
  7. You will also need a generous handful of fresh coriander.
  8. Slice and butter the buns.
  9. On the bottom half of each bun, spread a thick layer of sour cream.
  10. Top this with a generous scattering of sliced pickled jalapeño.
  11. Follow this with a good portion of fresh coriander.
  12. Heat your pan over medium high heat and add a little butter.
  13. Grill the patties for 2.5 minutes per side until nicely browned.
  14. Transfer the patties to the buns.
  15. Top the patties with the sliced tomato.
  16. Top the tomato with a generous dose of chilli Doritos and you're ready to serve.

Cuisine: Jamaican
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-8
Jamaican jerk chicken can be as mild or as hot as you like. You can adjust the heat by simply adding more or less cayenne and chilli flakes. The measurements in this recipe will give you a result on the milder side, but with tons of flavor. I am going to make jerk chicken kebabs and a couple of jerk chicken burgers using the TNK Stingray multitools feature in the previous episode.
  • 9-12 Chicken thighs, deboned
For the Jerk Spice
  • 15ml Onion flakes
  • 10ml Dried Thyme
  • 5ml Dried parsley
  • 7.5ml Whole allspice
  • 2.5ml Ground cinnamon
  • 5ml Whole black peppercorns
  • 2.5ml Cayenne pepper
  • 5ml Paprika
  • 2.5ml Chilli flakes
  • 1.25ml Ground cumin
  • 5ml Dried garlic granules
  • 10ml Salt
  • 1.25ml Ground nutmeg
  • 10ml Sugar
  • 10ml Dried chives
  1. To make the spice blend, combine the onion flakes, thyme, parsley, allspice, cinnamon, black peppercorns, cayenne pepper, paprika, chilli flakes, ground cumin, garlic granules, salt, nutmeg, sugar and dried chives.
  2. Put this all into your spice grinder and zap it until fine. Transfer the jerk spice to a sprinkle bottle.
  3. Place your deboned chicken thighs in a large non-reactive pan, skin side down.
  4. Sprinkle a generous dose of the spice over the chicken. Generous can not be overstated... you want to use a third of the spice on this side.
  5. Turn the chicken thighs over and dose the skin side with another third of the spice.
  6. Cover the pan with cling wrap and place this in your refrigerator overnight.
  7. The following day, cut the chicken into cubes. I have held 2 thighs back to cook as jerk chicken burger patties.
  8. Thread the chicken cubes onto skewers and you're ready to rock.
  9. To demonstrate the larger of the 2 Stingray multitools, I am going to barbecue most of the chicken, saving some for the pan to demonstrate the smaller model.
  10. Heat a barbecue skillet over medium high heat and brush this with oil and add the kebabs and jerk chicken burger.
  11. Turn the kebabs every 3 minutes, remembering that they have 4 sides, giving you a total time of 12 minutes.
  12. Watch how well the multitools toothed edge lifts end turns the kebabs with absolutely no problem.
  13. Grill the jerk burger for 4 minutes per side. Here's a shot of the lifter mechanism at work turning the burger.
  14. Using the prong to lift the burger from the skillet is effortless, and you can see the true genius behind the launch mechanism that gently squeezes the chicken of of the prongs onto the plate.
  15. Remove the kebabs from the barbecue and serve immediately.
  16. Now across to the non stick pan. Heat the pan over medium high heat and add a little butter.
  17. Add the kebabs and jerk burger to the pan. Grill them for 12 minutes, or 3 minutes per side. Grill the jerk burger for 8 minutes, turning halfway through.
  18. Here we can see just how simply the multitool turns the kebabs. The toothed edge really does make a difference.
  19. And again, here is the lifter turning the burger.
  20. Remove the chicken from the pan and serve with the accompaniments of your choice.
  21. And there we have it.... beautifully spiced and flavor Jamaican jerk chicken kebabs and burger patties.

Today we’re looking at some remarkable cooking multitools from TNK. This is not a paid revue. I found the TNK website and contacted them. They were kind enough to send me a whole bunch of products, and we cover these over the next few days. You can buy these directly from TNK, and you can visit their website here –
The first 2 products on test are these 2 very interesting looking multi tools. The larger of the 2 is for use on your barbecue and with the exception of the silicon grips the entire unit is good quality, well finished stainless steel.
On the left hand side of the lifter assembly you will find a set of teeth which are ideal for picking up and turning sausages and kebabs.
At the end of the upper lifter assembly is a set of prongs. These allow you to skewer and lift foods that may be awkward to to lift or turn with the lifter assembly.
The next step is pure genius. When the lifter assembly is closed the food on the prongs is gently squeezed of of the prongs.
A very nice afterthought is the built in bottle opener in the handle of the unit. What is barbecue without a good cold one.
The unit stores in the closed position which is locked by pulling the loop at end of the handle.
The second in this range is made specifically for use with nonstick pans. The design is identical, however the unit is slightly smaller and has a durable nylon lifter assembly.
All of the other features are the same as its big brother, however it does not feature the bottle opener.
Stay tuned for our next episode where we’re going to put both of these to test making an amazing meal of Jamaican jerk chicken kebabs, and burgers.

How to Make Beef Bacon - Kosher Beef Bacon, Corned Beef & Pastrami
Recipe type: Curing & Smoking Meats
Beef bacon, corned beef and pastrami are all very similar in the way that they are produced and as a result this episode will cover all 3. The differences between the different meats comes in the way they are finished off and this will be explained as we go.
  • 2.4kg Beef brisket
For the Curing
  • 2lt + 2lt Water
  • 200g Kosher salt
  • 140g Prague powder #2
  • 15ml Garlic powder
  • 4 Bay leaves
  • 15g Whole black pepper corns
  • 10ml Whole juniper berries
  • 90g Brown sugar
  1. To start, we need to measure out the curing ingredients which include kosher salt, black peppercorns, whole juniper berries, bay leaves, garlic powder, and brown sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl measure the Prague powder #2.
  3. Pour 2 liters of water into a pot and all of the spices except for the Prague powder.
  4. Bring this to boil and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the pot from the stove and quick chill the brine by floating the pot in a sink of cold water.
  6. Once the brine has cooled significantly, add another 2 liters of water to the brine along with the Prague powder. Stir the brine until the Prague powder has dissolved.
  7. While the brine continues cooling, you can unpack your meat. This is a nice big slab of brisket, or beef belly around 2.4kg in weight.
  8. By this stage the brine has cooled completely. Pour it into a large food safe container and add the brisket.
  9. Due to the high content of salts in the brine, the meat will float. You need to weigh it down beneath the surface of the brine using a bowl or plate.
  10. Put the lid on the container and transfer this to your refrigerator for 7 full days to cure.
  11. After the curing time remove the meat from the brine and wash it thoroughly under cold running water. You will notice how firm the meat is, along with amazing rosy pink tinge that is the hallmark of well-cured meat.
  12. Now, if you want corned beef this is where you will simply simmer the meat in water until the internal temperature reaches 67c or 152f.
  13. For beef bacon and pastrami we're going continue with the process.
  14. Dry the meat using a clean dish towel then place it on a rack in your refrigerator for 24 hours to air dry.
  15. This drying process will make the meat more receptive to the smoking process.
  16. Fire up your smoker. I am using the Smoke Daddy Vortex in this demonstration. I have the extreme left hand burner running to provide heat.
  17. Place the meat on the right hand side away from the direct heat, close the barbecue and allow this to smoke for around 3 hours until the internal temperature of the meat is 67c or 152f.
  18. This will give you beef bacon, at at this stage all you need to do is wrap it and refrigerate it. Although the bacon has technically been pasteurized, it does still require slicing and frying.
  19. All you need to make pastrami is to steam or simmer the meat until the internal temperature reaches 67c or 152f. This steaming is normally only carried out a few days after the smoking process, which allows the smoke to really penetrate the meat.
  20. And there it is, beautiful smoked beef bacon.... one step further than corned beef, and one step short of pastrami.
