Ingredients

Serves: 4

Metric Cups
  • 500 grams minced beef
  • 1 packet rocket (small packet)
  • pecorino rigatello cheese (a small block - the best is the one with a lot of salty crystals inside)
  • 1 large lemon
  • black pepper (ground)
  • sea salt (big grains)
  • white truffle oil (this is mostly bought in small bottles because of the expensive cost, so it can also be replaced by a good quality olive oil)
  • 17⅔ ounces ground beef
  • 1 packet arugula (small packet)
  • pecorino rigatello cheese (a small block - the best is the one with a lot of salty crystals inside)
  • 1 large lemon
  • black pepper (ground)
  • sea salt (big grains)
  • white truffle oil (this is mostly bought in small bottles because of the expensive cost, so it can also be replaced by a good quality olive oil)

Method

Steak Tartare the Toscan Style is a community recipe submitted by bert voordeckers and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Fork down the beef in a nice white dish (preferable white and square) some pepper and sea salt nicely with the tip of your fingers spreaded over the redness of the beef.
  • Then pull the rucola salad if it's too long into slightly shorter pieces and throw it on the beef.
  • Take the pecorino cheese or some other salty Italian cheese like Parmigiano and make long very thin slices with a thin peeler spread them out over the plate.
  • Now take one half of the lemon and gently squeeze some juice over the total dish, I would say not too much so the lemon would overrule the finishing touch with the great tartuffo bianco the white truffle oil because its taste is so delicious and addictive! So for the fans of minced beef this is a winner especially on hot summer parties as a fresh cool starter you can prepare it before the guests arrive and put it in the fridge!
  • If possible you can serve with it a nice spumanté ( Italian bubbly wine ) and san pelligréno ( Italian bubbly water) enjoy
