Slice cold beef into half-inch chunks, then sleek strips, before coarsely chopping this with a razor-sharp knife. Put on a dish and set aside to refrigerate while you finish the remaining meal.
  2. Stir the meat, carefully mix and fold in some other ingredients such as seasoning with kosher salt and pepper to taste, and stir again. Refrigerate the ingredients until prepared to assemble and consume.
  3. In a circular shape mold or beaker, compress the tartare. Divide the mixture into two equal halves. Fill two dishes with the mixture.
  4. In the middle, with a spoon, create a tiny well kind of structure. In each piece, carefully add in the uncooked egg yolk.
  5. Garnish with a tablespoon of dijon mustard, pickled vegetables, thin slices of garlic toast, and olives.

  • You would like the beef to be chopped into tiny pieces that are simple to swallow. So you may use a sharp knife or a meat grinder to accomplish that.
  • To reduce the tartness of the sliced shallots, immerse them in cold water for a few minutes.
  • You may chill the combined combination for a long to 3 or 4 hours if you want to create beef tartare ahead of time. However, if the flesh is left too long, it will become grey.
  • Vegetables or fresh sprouts are a fresh and crisp substitute for egg yolks if you would not want to use them.
  • The remaining steak tartare cannot be stored. Therefore, it should be consumed immediately.
  • Because the steak is tight, there would not be a lot, but try to remove excess tendons or big chunks of fat.
  • A quarter of the tartare combination should be pressed into a round shape mold or beaker. Continue with the second quarter, turning it over and next to a platter. Make a tiny hole in the center with the spoon of every tartare and place an egg yolk on top.
