Steak Tartare with Black Truffle Oil and Black Truffle Salt Flakes

Serving: 4 people

INGREDIENTS:

PREPARATION:

STEP 1

Place the beef in the freezer for about 1 hour until the exterior begins to firm up and form crystals but it’s still easily pierced with a knife. This will make it easier to finely hand-chop.

STEP 2

In a small bowl, prep the mixture with shallot, dill pickles, and parsley, and set aside. In another small bowl whisk together the egg yolk, vinegar, mustard, oil, and Worcestershire.

STEP 3

Remove the beef from the freezer, slice it thinly against the grain, then slice into fine strips, and then finally dice into small cubes, about ¼-inch across. Transfer the beef to a large mixing bowl and gently combine it with the mixture as well as the dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed with salt and pepper.

STEP 4

Divide into 4 equal portions, press each portion into a round cookie cutter on a plate. Remove the ring and serve immediately, preferably with toast points/toasted baguette slices, fries and/or salad.
