    Mix the lemon juice with Dijon mustard and egg yolk using a little whisk. Then stir in the vegetable oil gradually while whisking. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Tartare preparation
    In a large bowl, mix the beef, gherkins, capers, shallots, chives and a drop of horseradish mayo to bind the whole thing. Mix well. Now you will season your tartare and it's all about personal taste. Add some salt and pepper, pour a little more mayo to adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  • Quail eggs preparation
    Cook the quail eggs on low heat in a non-stick pan on one side only.
  • To serve
    Draw a line of horseradish mayo on your plate. Use a ring mold to serve your tartare and place a quail egg on top . Accompany your tartare with baguette croutons and eventually a mixed green salad dressed with horseradish mayo.
Boston cut is ideal for a tartare: inexpensive, very tasty and very tender when served raw or very ligthly cooked. Tell your butcher that you intend to prepare a tartare and he will suggest you a very fresh piece.
