Ingredients

  • 200g extremely fresh Scotch Beef fillet or sirloin, finely minced by knife.
  • 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped.
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped.
  • Tablespoon of capers, finely chopped.
  • Tablespoon of cornichons, finely chopped.
  • Tablespoon whole grain (Pommery) mustard
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • Splash brandy
  • Shake of Tabasco sauce
  • Shake of Worcester sauce
  • Splash of virgin olive oil
  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and white pepper.
  • 2 egg yolks (not burst)

Method

Remove and discard any outside surface from the Scotch Beef before mincing.
Finely mince with a sharp knife and remove any sinew or fatty pieces.
In a bowl combine beef, shallots, anchovy, capers and cornichon then mix thoroughly, best by hand, with all the other ingredients adjusting seasoning to taste.
To serve:
Divide in half, to make two, press gently into a ring mould on a plate or piece of slate.
Make a slight indentation in the centre of each of the tartar patties into which pop an egg yolk.
I like to sprinkle mine with dried chilli flakes or powder.
Serve with Melba toast and skinny fries.
