Beef Tartare Burgers


400g best quality beef mince
1 egg yolk, beaten
3 anchovy fillets, chopped
1 shallot, finely minced
2 cornichons, finely chopped
2 tspns salted capers, rinsed
1 tspn Dijon mustard
Dash of Tabasco
1 tblspn chopped parsley
Sea salt & pepper
1 tblspn olive oil
2 fresh English muffins

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 30 minutes


In a bowl, combine the mince, yolk, anchovy, shallot, cornichons, capers, mustard, Tabasco, parsley, salt and pepper, mixing and mulching it well with your hands.

Shape the meat into two large, thick, round patties.

Heat the oil in a frypan and sear on one side for 4 minutes until dark and crusty, then turn and cook the other side very briefly, keeping it as rare as you dare.

Split the muffins and lightly grill. Place each burger on a muffin base and lean the muffin top against it.

Serve with Dijon mustard or tomato ketchup.
