Classic Steak Tartare Recipe 

Classic Steak Tartare Recipe

Steak Tartare is a raw meat dish that's delicately seasoned and traditionally served as an appetizer. Here's a classic recipe for preparing a delicious and elegant Steak Tartare. 




- 12 oz (340g) high-quality beef tenderloin or sirloin, finely minced 

- 2 tablespoons capers, drained and finely chopped 

- 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped 

- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped 

- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 

- 2 egg yolks, from pasteurized eggs 

- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 

- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (adjust to taste) 

- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 

- Toast points, baguette slices, or crackers, for serving 

- Additional parsley leaves, for garnish 




1. Prepare the Meat: 

   - Make sure the beef is very cold. Trim any excess fat and sinew, then finely mince the beef using a sharp knife. You can also ask your butcher to do this for you. 

   - Place the minced beef in a chilled mixing bowl. 


2. Season and Flavor: 

   - Add the chopped capers, red onion, and fresh parsley to the minced beef. 


3. Add the Sauces: 

   - Gently mix in the Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce, ensuring they're evenly distributed. 


4. Incorporate Egg Yolks: 

   - Create two small wells in the beef mixture and carefully place an egg yolk in each well. Be cautious not to break the yolks. 


5. Season and Mix: 

   - Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use a gentle folding motion to combine the ingredients. Avoid overmixing, as the texture should remain somewhat loose. 


6. Taste and Adjust: 

   - Taste a small portion of the mixture and adjust the seasoning if needed. Add more salt, pepper, or Tabasco according to your preference. 


7. Chill and Rest: 

   - Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and the mixture to firm up slightly. 


8. Serve: 

   - When ready to serve, use a ring mold or simply shape the Steak Tartare on individual plates. Carefully remove the plastic wrap if using. 

   - Garnish with additional parsley leaves for a fresh touch. 


9. Accompany with Toast Points: 

   - Serve the Steak Tartare with toast points, thinly sliced baguette, or your favorite crackers. The crunch and mild flavor of these accompaniments complement the rich meaty flavor of the tartare. 


Note: Because this recipe involves raw meat, it's crucial to use high-quality, fresh, and properly handled ingredients. Additionally, consider using pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk of foodborne illness. 


Steak Tartare is a dish that's all about the quality and freshness of the ingredients, so be sure to source the best you can find. Enjoy this elegant and flavorful appetizer!
