Burger Cook-off surprise secret ingredient – Think Elvis

As part of our Canadian beef Family Dinner launch event at the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence April 6, media celebrity Andrew Schultz came out with his 2 girls Casey and Sydney to take on the Burger Cook-off Challenge. Although they didn’t win, their burger was my personal favourite. Their burger had one of those flavour combos that you can’t quite identify — a ‘je ne sais quoi’ quality. The beef flavour was still the star. Thanks for sharing Andrew!


The girls got some ‘screen time’ with The Roundup app. They loved the Cuts by Colour.

  • the recipe is not Andrew’s- it was a winning recipe from a cook-off held on Breakfast Television years ago. The woman who won was kind enough to share it with them – and they shared it with their viewers – it is credited to Paul Eckersley


  • peanut butter + Chinese Five Spice seasoning. The PB is the link to Elvis! You really don’t taste the peanut butter but it adds a certain richness. The Five Spice makes the flavour interesting but not overpowering.
  • Andrew chose a blend of chuck and brisket for a super flavourful ground beef

I call it the PB & B Burger (that’s Peanut Butter and Beef Burger). Give it a try and let us know what you think!

1 lb of Ground Beef

2 tbsp of Peanut Butter

3 tbsp of Soy Sauce

1 tsp of Sriracha or Sambal Chili Sauce

1 garlic clove (minced)

1 zest of lime

3 tsp of balsamic vinegar

1 tsp of Chinese Five Spice seasoning

(Add: 1 egg, 1/4 cup bread crumbs – and a pinch of salt & pepper)
