One of the reasons I am so fond of this curry is because it reminds me of a beef dish my late father used to make. It was made with blade beef, which was prepared the night before, lightly salted but generously seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and slow cooked, not a single minute rushed. Such care was always taken when he cooked beef, to ensure that the meat was tender and would literally just fall off the bone. But no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to recreate it the way he did! However, I drew on his adoration and love of beef with this recipe instead and my heritage as a meat-loving South African!

Here is a steak tartare recipe from from the chefs team at Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant.

  • 3 ml Dijon mustard
  • 5 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 3 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 g Salt
  • 2 g Black pepper, freshly cracked
  • 1 g Aniseed, toasted
  • 1 free-range egg yolk

Instructions

  1. Place the chopped beef, gherkins, capers and onion into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well.
  3. To serve, spoon tartare onto a plate and place the raw egg yolk on top, season the yolk with salt and some black pepper. Serve with toasted sourdough and some mustard cress.
