This is a very good recipe! Hope you enjoy it as much as we have. Courtesy of Emeril Lagasse and Television Food Network 2003 05/12/2009 Update:I was given some Kobe Beef (sirloin) & I decided to make some of it as Steak Tartare. Instead of grinding the meat we chopped the meat as fine as we could and then chopped it again. Added cognac and along with that I used some crushed red pepper flakes. Very tasty!

- The American Egg Board states: "There have been warnings against consuming raw or lightly cooked eggs on the grounds that the egg may be contaminated with Salmonella, a bacteria responsible for a type of foodborne illness. Healthy people need to remember that there is a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled, fresh, grade AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the shell -- ".
