Mexican Steak Tartare
The idea was to see what a Mexican-inspired version of steak tartare would taste like. So we swapped out the capers and cornichons for guacamole, pico de gallo (tomato & onion salsa) and of course a little of our Chipotle Paste. To say we were happy with the result is an understatement. Great little weekend lunch idea to eat with some nice toasted sourdough.
If you have any leftover beef you could give our Chipotle Beef Nachos a go.
How to make it
- Finely chop the steak as small as you can get it (it should resemble minced steak).
- Mix in the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste, a small dash of olive oil, a little coriander and season with salt & pepper. Don’t be afraid to taste at this stage to get the right flavours. Use a ramekin to shape the beef and turn out on to a plate.
- Mash the avocado and add 1tsp lime juice, 1tsp chopped coriander, salt & pepper (you don’t have to be exact, just keep tasting until you are happy with it).
- Make the pico de gallo by combining the finely chopped shallot, tomato, coriander, ½ tsp lime juice and a little olive oil, salt & pepper (again, adjust to your own tastes).
- Toast some nice crusty sourdough or ciabatta bread.
- Finally, make a small indent with the back of a teaspoon in the top of the beef, and carefully put the egg yolk on top.
- Serve the different elements individually.
