Original Steak Tartare

Original Steak Tartare


"The legend goes that Tartare tribes when fighting in the past didn't even have time to stop and cook their food. They are said to have kept the meat underneath their saddles and mince it in this way. Today this dish is a gourmet classic. This dish is eaten like a pate, spread on a piece of warm toast with fresh tomato and onion rings on top. It is very important though to make sure that both the meat and the egg are very fresh because they are eaten raw."

1. Rather than grinding, I prefer to start with a whole fresh filet and separate the meat from the fascia by scraping it with the edge of a sharp knife. There is no comparison with respect to t...

If you love steak Tartare and cannot not find it in restaurants any more, this is the answer. Eggs and beef do have to be fresh. I buy the freshed beef and have the butcher grind it.

This is a once in a blue moon treat for my hubby and I. I'm not a meat eater, but this is the exception. I will only buy the meat from our German butcher and have him grind it. There were a coup...

My husband made X rated noises while eating this, so I'll have to assume it was awesome, as I'm way too much of a ninny to try it. I'm making it again for him on father's day so long as I can ge...

Just outstanding! I will write-out and post the recipie on my kitchen wall, till I "own" the formula. I scaled back to a single, carnivore's meal. Except; no hot pepper, and I drank the brandy....
