The Steak Tartare is another Belgian classic. This dish is made from raw ground beef, shallots, capers, gherkins and sometimes includes egg yolk or mayo. Either way, you will want to enjoy this dish served cold and freshly prepared. In Belgium, people enjoy it on patios on hot days with french fried and an ice cold beer… another thing Belgians are known for!


  1. Transfer the ground beef to a large mixing bowl. Also add the chopped gherkins, the salted capers the freshly chopped parsley.
  2. Stir well. Then add the Worcester sauce, lemon juice, mayo, olive oil, the chopped shallots, and 2 drops of tabasco. You can also add the egg yolk or keep it aside for garnish later. Season the beef mince with a pinch of pepper and salt.
  3. Stir the beef mince well again. Then taste the beef and add extra pepper, salt, Worcester sauce, lemon juice, or tabasco to taste if necessary.
  4. Divide the seasoned beef tartare over 2 plates. Then put them in the fridge for about 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Garnish with a little sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and a tiny pinch of salt. Serve the beef tartare cold.
