We love steak tartare and order it whenever we find it on the menu.
We tried to make it at home once, slicing the beef into a brunoise. It was not successful (our knife skills not a particular talent).
We ‘collect’ photos of creative steak tartare
This one from chef New York Chef David Shim, of Michelin-starred Cote, Korean steakhouse.
His tongue-in-cheek name for the dish: Steak & Eggs, pays homage to both the hen’s egg and the caviar eggs.
The recipe is part of a dish swap that saw eight restaurants in New York City and Los Angeles swap their favorite creations, bringing a taste of their signature dishes to the opposite coast.
The series also supports Relief Opportunities for all Restaurants (ROAR), an organization providing direct assistance to restaurant workers, the charity partner of San Pellegrino’s (S. Pellegrino) “Destination Dining Series: An East Coast, West Coast Signature Dish Swap.”
RECIPE: STEAK & EGGS, AN INNOVATIVE STEAK TARTARE
If your budget doesn’t allow for sturgeon caviar, use any of the affordable caviars, from salmon to trout to __.
You will have to brunoise the beef. You need good knife skills for this.
If you need to brush up, here’s a video on how to brunoise. Remember to sharpen your knives!

Preparation For The Steak Tartare
1. PREPARE two small mixing bowls of similar size: one to mix the steak and one bowl to hold ice water. Have one mixing bowl filled with half ice and half water to make a proper ice bath. Put the empty mixing bowl on the ice bath.
2. BRUNOISE the tenderloin (here’s a video on how to brunoise) and put it in the mixing bowl and coat it with extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Place a 1.75-inch diameter ring mould/cutter into the serving bowl and fill it with the seasoned tenderloin. While filling the mould, gently press the meat down to make a firm and even base. Just like a hockey puck.
3. Sprinkle finely-cut chives on top of the meat. Now take the mould out.
4. Quenelle the caviar and place it on top of the tartare.
For the toast
1. Preheat the oven to 375F on the convection baking setting.
2. Get a fresh loaf of milk bread or brioche and slice it into 1/2inch slices. Cut the sliced bread into smaller sticks, 3/4-inch width x 3-inch length.
3. Prepare a sheet tray with parchment paper and place the bread sticks on it. You can temper the butter for a smoother spread (it should be like mayonnaise consistency). Spread ½ tbsp spoon of butter on each side of the bread and toast it in a 375F oven until it becomes golden brown. You will need 2 pieces each of toast to complement the dish.
