Hand cut beef tartare with caviar

Traditional steak tartare is a dish made from raw beef, which has been chopped by hand using a knife or cleaver. Condiments, such as onions, capers, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, are often presented on the side.

Today, we serve the tartare with a twist and add Greek yoghurt or labneh which is better to balance the flavour of the beef with the Imperial caviar. As always you can substitute the caviar with lumpfish eggs if you don’t want to stretch your budget.
