Classic Homemade Beef Tartare
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: French
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 300 gr. of beef fillet or rumsteak
  • 2 fresh eggs yolk
  • 1 shallot
  • ½ onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 French pickles (little and spicy)
  • 4 teaspoon of capers
  • fine-cutted parsley
  • olive oil
  • tabasco
  • lemon juice
  • pepper
  • salt
  1. I usually either finely dice my beef fillet or ask my bucher to prepare the meat for me if I run out of time.
  2. You need then to finely dice all ingredients in different small dishes. When I am done with the preparation, I bring everything onto the table and each guests can prepare his tartare himself at their convenience.
  3. For 150 gr. of meat, I most of the time add 2 teaspoons of shallots, pickles, parsley and capers, ½ garlic clove, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and few drops of tabasco.
  4. I mix everything together and I add a lot of pepper, salt flower and 1 egg yolk. I serve with French fries and toasts with butter!
