  1. In a bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. With a knife or crank grinder with a medium-sized grinding plate, grind the beef.
  3. In a bowl, combine the dressing, ground beef, shallots, egg yolk and parsley. Adjust the seasoning.
  4. Serve cold with the Endive and Celery Salad and toasted bread. For a beautiful presentation, use a cookie cutter or a cleaned tin can opened at both ends. Garnish with capers, if desired.


Personally, I like to use top round to prepare my tartare, not only because it’s cheaper than tenderloin, but also because it is firmer and provides a very appetizing texture. I also like to spice up my tartar with sambal oelek or Tabasco sauce.

Good with...

Endive and Celery Salad

    My first time making steak tartare and it was a hit with all of our friends. I was able to make the marinade the night before without the oil, since the steak should not be cut up until 20 mins before serving. I used regular onions since I didn't have shallots so I just used a bit less. Thanks for an amazing and easy recipe.
