The tartar steak is originated in France, but its roots are hidden between Europa and Asia. There are plenty of different modifications of this steak, and our version is one of them, but as usual, I think this version is one of the best. One portion requires from ½ to 1 pound of meat.

tips and tricks
The biggest questing is, which beef cut is the best for this steak. The main rule is, the meat should be tented, lean and tasty. Also meat should be well matured (dry aged beef is perfect). Usually, this steak is cooked from the fillet steak, but, from my point of view, the top rump steak is most suitable for this.
It is better to pasteurize an egg.
It is possible to use ordinary onion, but the sweet onion will be much better.
