BEEF TARTARE / MINCED BEEF / CHOPPED STEAK WITH AN ASIAN TWIST
Finally, the sun is back. Love to eat this dish when it’s sunny outside. You can find this dish on almost every menu in Belgium. A true classic but I added a little Asian flavor to it. If you haven’t got an idea what to make for dinner tonight, here it is ! Happy new week lovies, Cece.
Serves up to 2 people.
- 350gr of minced beef
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sweet soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of ketjap manis
- 1 tablespoon of spicy oil (see recipe)
- 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
- ½ lime
- 8 baby asparagus
- Roasted almonds
- 2 stems of spring onion
- Garlic powder
- Olive oil
1. We start by making the dressing. Take a small mixing bowl and add the soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, ketjap manis, spicy oil, sesame oil and the juice from the lime. Stir it all together.
2. Wash the spring onion and cut it into small rings.
3. Place a pan on a high fire and add a little bit of olive oil.
4. Bake the asparagus until they are crispy. Season with pepper and garlic powder.
5. When they are crispy, place the pan aside and turn down the fire.
6. Take a mixing bowl and add the beef and the spring onion. Season with pepper.
7. Add the dressing to your flavor.
8. Mix everything together with a fork (or with your hands).
9. Serving tip: I used a ring mold. Placed it in the middle of my plate and added the beef mixture to it, pressed it with a fork.
10. Finish off with placing the baked asparagus on top and the crushed almonds.
11. Tip: I like to add some cilantro leaves and a dash of spicy oil.
