Serving Size

2 x Tasty Steak Crackling Burger Patties

Main Ingredients:

250g Chateaubriand Steak (or similar)

55g Beef Crackling*

Salt To Taste

Recipe Instructions


Chop the steak and beef crackling into smaller pieces with a knife or kitchen scissors. Add the pieces to a mini blender along with some salt.


Blend briefly until all the ingredients are well combined, but avoid over blending.


Add the mixture to a glass bowl.


Place a pastry circle (or burger patty circle) on top of a piece of greaseproof paper.


Add half of the patty mixture into the burger patty circle. Use a spoon/burger patty press to press the patty down into a nice burger patty shape. Carefully remove the circle from around the patty.


Repeat, to make the second burger patty.


If you're not cooking your burger patties straightaway, place the patties in an airtight container in the fridge. Otherwise, go ahead and cook the patties in a shallow dish (to retain the cooking juices) in a 160c oven for 25 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.


Drizzle your steak crackling burger patties with any cooking juices to retain a good PKD ratio.




Be sure to use a nice, tender piece of steak.


Ideally, purchase your meat, fat and offal from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free and use white sea salt or rock salt that contains no anticaking agents or other additives.

If you don't have any beef crackling available, then simply use pork back fat, lard, tallow, bone marrow or other animal fat to ensure a good PKD ratio of meat to fat.


*The burger patties cook up really well in the oven. A small amount of fat will be rendered during the cooking process (approx. 10g per burger patty), so be sure to pour the juices over your burger at the end to retain a good PKD ratio. If you have an issue with consuming liquid fat, then simply reserve this for another recipe and add some extra fat to the tops of your burger patties to retain a good PKD ratio.
