your drink a very different sort of kick coming up on the ultimate guide to cooking with chilies more great cooking tips take the southern out of the fridge literally 20 minutes before you wanna cook them so gets up to room temperature how to shop for the best ingredients the smaller the chili the hotter and an incredible spicy beef salad to make your mouth water just finish with a little tablespoon of that sauce this is my ultimate cookery course hundred recipes to stake your life on I'll be showing you an amazing spicy beef salad take a little teaspoon on your dressing and just go over the leaf but first the secret of cooking fantastic food is to start with great ingredients the more you know personally about where your ingredients are from and how they produce the better so they'll be scared asked lots of questions and learn and when it comes to chilies there's no one better to ask and chilli grower Johanna plump who's been farming chilies from mild to mind-blown for over eleven years I eat chilies all the time every single day she grows over 60 types on her farm and really knows her poblanos from I have Anil's people think that chilies are all about heat actually it's about flavor as well some are sweet and some are aromatic and they can be used in so many different dishes when you go shopping and you're looking for a chili what should you be looking for what you want to do is look at the chili and it needs to be nice and firm and glossy generally the bigger the chili the Marder is going to be the smaller the chili the hotter and if it's small and wrinkly like this one it's going to blow your socks off another way to tell if the chili is hot or not is to split it open and smell it if it's a super hot chili it clear your sinuses the heat of a chili comes from an oil called capsaicin and that is concentrated mainly at the top of the chili where the seeds are now when you're cooking with a chili and you want the flavor of the chili but not too much of the heat start with just using the bottom of it as you get closer to the seeds that Chili's going to get hotter so if you remove the seeds that also does remove some of the heat there's thousands of varieties out there because they cross pollinate very very easily and that's why the world's hottest chili is always changing Joanna's right with over 200 types available or with different flavors aromas and of course levels of heat is important to buy what you like here are my top Chili's whatever your desired kick at the mild end poblano these are great for stuffing have a delicate flavor and often use in Mexican dishes starting to get hot the jalapeno when they're green they're like spicy bell pepper the redder they are the sweeter they are bird's eye when they really start to pack a punch long thin and pungent they're great in Thai dishes and are often green or red and at the top end they have a nil these Lantern shape demons have a delicious fruity taste under the firecracker of the chili world another way to use chilies is to smoke them and to make Chipotle what it is it's just a mesquite smoked red jalapeno it smells fantastic you can almost get that like smoky bacon sort of flavor out of it so you would use this in anything that you would slow cook so you're eating a chili and it's really too hot for you the best way to get rid of that heat is to drink some milk or a dairy product like yogurt whatever you do don't go for water or for beer don't be frightened of trying new types of chilies in your cooking experimenting with these amazing fiery piece it's a great excuse for getting hot-headed in the kitchen they give you a natural high much like when you've been exercising so your endorphins are released and you just feel good chilies make you happy and they're also an aphrodisiac Southeast Asian chefs they're bringing their balance in the hot spices of Chile with sweet sour and salty flavors if you want a new twist on a favorite dish spice it up with chili my next recipe is super simple to make but has wonderful depth and complexity of flavors spicy beef salad chilies if you use them confidently they can really add a new dimension to the style of cooking but the real trick is finding that balance of flavors that really seize you because that's the most important so this is the most amazing sirloin you can see it's got that wonderful marble for me the secret behind this is cooking it quickly season the steaks generously salt and pepper push that seasoning in to the sirloin take the set on out the fridge literally 20 minutes before you wanna cook them so it gets up to room temperature they cook more evenly but more importantly you can actually season right inside the steak this little bit of fat down here season that as well because that is what we want to roast and get that really nice and rendered olive oil in a tablespoon roll that round as it starts to smoke in with the steaks into the pan and lay away again into the pan and lay away if you don't hear that noise the minute those steaks with the pan don't put them in so the secret now is getting that color on the steak turning it once and once only and cooking it for two and a half minutes each side what I want to do is to get that bit of fat rendered so it adds a lot more flavor just hold the steak down like that and that starts to melt the fat which makes it so much more tender there should be no white fat left anywhere turn them over really important to have that steak up to room temperature before you start cooking it so the inside is nice and warm so he spends less time in the pan and more time cooling down really important now to fingers touch it goes in says rare I'm happy to be rare because by the time I let them rest then we go back to me continue cooking out onto a plate and let them rest one two let's get my juices over don't waste that really important next the spicy dressing take the seeds out of a chili to reduce the heat by rubbing it in your hands and tapping until the seeds fall out cut it in half and just chop it in garlic and chili works brilliantly a quick way of peeling it get your knife and just slam it down pops out very quickly in little touch a salt rub start going around in circles first you'll see it puring nice get that off now we've got the heating there from the chili and that richness from the garlic 2 teaspoons of palm sugar this is where it starts to have that nice sweet sour effects fish sauce fresh lime this is a simple fresh chili dressing and it was something I fell in love with in Vietnam and Cambodia because it was just so easy give that a little mix you dissolve the sugar quick taste mmm Wow right vegetables a great fuss free way to get super thin ribbons of carrot is to use a veg peeler when they're that thin they take the vinaigrette so much better and radishes just slice them down at an angle lovely give another dimension of the salad Rees a banana chillon they are incredibly mellow he's sweet across just chop up the shalat and mix that through what some sweetness in there now little vine tomatoes slice them in half smart as in Sherlock radish carrots and tomatoes next peel and slice cucumber chopped spring onions and shred baby gem lettuce and finally get some fresh mint young men so you don't need to take all those stalks off we do hold a bunch upside down and then take it for a little trim and just chop that once through you got that nice minted salad color tablespoons of dressing don't flood the cellar with a dressing you can always add but we can't take it away now really mix that dressing in there make sure all that chilli and garlic and palm sugar wraps around the salad beautiful on to the plate the steaks rested it's now nice and medium-rare a little bit of fat we don't want to find that in the salad just slice that off that served its purpose it's kept that staying nice and moist slice going with the grain it's almost like slicing through butter and look inside beautiful pink you slice the beef too thinly then it goes stone-cold and more importantly all the goodness runs out of it nice thick slices yeah the beef and start placing around your salad take a little teaspoon on your dressing the rest of your salad sit out on top we'll finish it off with some toasted peanuts peanuts in now those nuts are really toasted nuts aren't get out of the pan and just crush once they've cooled down just run them through with a knife they can hear our crunch they are another texture another taste the salad and then from there

  1. He's driving me crazy with the use of olive oil in this series. Every time no matter what he's making it's olive oil. Even though he's said himself on a different show that olive oil shouldn't even be heated. There has to be some olive oil distributor heavy in on the production side of this series..

  2. If you pause at 6:33, you will notice how he's holding the board. He's left handed so the fingers are much more out of line compared to his right, which he's subconsciously trained to keep in a straight nail pattern.
