Trying to make smash burgers and fries .. Kinda!

i like smash burgers. I think they are a great chain.. And when one finally makes it over here? 

(Well of course they will be at least another third of the price on top !)..

First let’s start with the meat.. Very nice scotch chick steak..

 

Trimmed down even further  .. 
And hand cranked through the mincer..

 

Dusted with onion powder, Bristol blend pepper, a touch of ground coriander, and a splash of Worcestershire ..

 
Now the ‘trick’ here is to keep them loosely packed.. And get them cold first.

 

Ok.. Let’s park them a while..

Fries.. I love the garlic, rosemary and olive oil smash fries.. Like seriously love them.. 

So have gone for a Mr Fitz version.. Flat leaf parsley, garden Rosemary, salt and pepper, French garlic , very good quality olive oil and a smudge of butter..

 The fries are going to be tossed in that.. 

Yeah!!

So the spuds..

 

Great red potatoes crinkle cut.. 

And soaked in water salt and sugar..

 
Half hour later drain them and pat them dry..

 

A double fry..first in the uncle bens wok with straight up Mrs middletons oil..

   Then in to the frying pan mixed up with that mix..


The burgers , ? The iron pan heated up. A small piece of butter smeared on.. The round patty placed on.. Then the ‘smash’.. Well I don’t have the smash tool .. Think i will get a pal to make me one.. So place a piece of parchment on top of the party and squish it down.. This means that you get an amazing crust.. And the meat stays juice all the way through.. Let it cook up the sides.. So you can see it cooking.. Then flip..

And it ain’t long at all!

Just enough time to cut a couple of store bought  brioche buns..

Dressed accordingly..

 

Double for me!

 
Stunning burgers. I think.. Ahem.. Much better than the original smash! Yay!!!

And for pudding?

A raspberry magnum..

 

That should be spelt mag-YUM!

  3. crinkle cutter reminds me of curly chips at home.. Never mind the Worcester Sauce, you should be having the Hendersons Relish. Far better… I will send some down there with your Mum in December. xxx
