Brush some extra butter on the sides of the pancake and break an egg into the opening of the pancake each time.

Tataki with red beetroot

Posted on Updated on

The festive season is coming soon, so that here it is a super recipe

By frying the meat briefly, it remains nice and soft and tender. The dish is served with a beetroot cream making for a delicious, festive appetizer.

Ingredients: 200 g steak, 1 pre-cooked beetroot, 2 tbsp beetroot shoots, 2 tbsp yoghurt

1 tbsp za’atar, 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper

Za’atar is a culinary herb or family of herbs. It is also the name of a spice mixture that includes the herb along with toasted sesame seeds, dried sumac, often salt, as well as other spices. As a family of related Middle Eastern herbs, it contains plants from the oregano, basil thyme, and savory plants. The name za’atar alone most properly applies to Origanum syriacum, considered in biblical scholarship to be the hyssop of the Hebrew Bible. Used in Levantine cuisine, both the herb and spice mixture are popular throughout the Mediterranean region of the Middle East.

Recipe

Remove the meat from the refrigerator.

Mix the beetroot with the yogurt and the za’atar, season to taste with salt and pepper.

Season the meat with salt and pepper and fryin a bit of olive oil briefly in the pan on both sides.

Afterwards, let the meat rest briefly under aluminum foil.

Cut the meat into fine strips. Spoon some beetroot cream on the plates and place the strips of beef on top. Finish with some dashes of beetroot.
