How to Make Steak Tartare


  1. Place all grinding tools in the fridge for 1 hour. Place the beef in the freezer for 30 to 40 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust if necessary; set aside.
  3. With a knife or a meat grinder fitted with a large-sized grinding plate, finely chop the beef. Add egg yolk, shallots, cornichons, parsley and 2/3 of dressing (don’t make the tartare too wet); stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 to 60 minutes.
  4. Later on, using a burger press or a cookie cutter, mold the steak. Serve it with Dijon mustard, cornichons & crostini; garnish with parsley. Makes 2 servings
