1. Beef Tartare – Steak Tartare, the Ingridien. What do I use for Beef Tartare?

The most important ingredient, of course, is a good beef. Organic meat would be ideal. I recommend low-fat meat such as beef fillet or beef topside. I always go to the butcher of my trust, ask for well hung, tender meat and let my meat turn fresh through the mincer. The minced meat MUST be eaten the same day. Some people may have injected Botox into their skin, but they certainly don’t like botulinum toxin in their food. That wouldn’t be digestible, would it? Besides the meat I pay attention to a fine mustard and recommend here Dijon mustard. Fresh egg yolk, onions, capers, gherkins and tomato paste are other important ingredients. Fresh herbs, finely chopped, are also nice.

2. Beef Tartare – Steak Tartare, the Preparation

Now it is important to process the fresh, finely chopped ingredients quickly so that they are consumed as soon as possible. Leftovers should be disposed of or fried so that a fresh and healthy diet is always guaranteed. I always arrange the beef tartare with the help of a ring. That gives a nice picture on the plate.
