Gourmet Beef Tartare

When walking along the meat section in the supermarket I found myself hypnotized by a little pack of high quality beef. As I stayed and stared at that little meaty ball, a taste of tartare flew into my thoughts and I just couldn't stand it. Crispy bread slice with a layer of raw spicy beef. That would definitely do my evening.



A positive side of tartare is minimum time and maximum satisfaction. That might resolve your lack of time, as you will see.

Ingredients:
4 pieces whole wheat bread slices
100 g beef
1 raw yolk
1/4 medium onion
20  g mustard
2  g ground black pepper
2  g salt
1 tsp lemon juice
cornichons

Mince 1/4 of middle-sized onion. The pieces should be small, yet tangible. That is pretty much it of the to-does on the step of preparations.

The next step is to mix already minced beef with onion. Add mustard, pepper and salt and mix well. Squeeze needed quantity of lemon juice for extra freshness.


Serve in a little bowl. Put egg yolk in the middle. Last step - toast bread slices and add some cornishons. Here we are, sitting together - with family or friends, big company or romantic dinner for two... Tartare is an appetizer that will do your evening. Trust me!


Tip!
An interesting way to serve it for guests is to put aside all the ingredients, already minces, grounded...whatever. A big serving plate would be perfect for that purpose. Just mix all of the parts in to one perfect tartare in front of your guests. Enjoy!

Bon Appétit :)
