RECIPE: BEEF TARTARE WITH RASPBERRIES, CRÈME OF SMOKED CHEESE AND RYE BREAD CRISPS

smørrebrød lunch restaurant kronborg copenhagen beef tartre recipe

Our summer beef tartare gets its creaminess from the smoked cheese, its punch from the fresh horseradish, the tartness from the raspberries and its crunch from the rye bread crisps. All the elements a great-tasting “smørrebrød”-dish should have…

Our Head Chef, Jimmi Bengtsson, has taken inspiration from possibly the season’s tastiest berry, the raspberry, for this summery tartare. The tartare is on the specials board and goes down a storm with our regulars…

RECIPE: BEEF TARTARE WITH RASPBERRIES, CRÈME OF SMOKED CHEESE AND RYE BREAD CRISPS

Four servings

Tartare
600 grams of tender beef
1 piece of fresh horseradish, (6-8 centimetres) shredded finely
1 small red onion, chopped finely
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper

Créme of smoked cheese
2 dl smoked cheese
1 dl sour cream 38 %
Salt & pepper

Raspberry syrup
1 dl raspberry vinegar
½ dl sugar

Rye bread crisps
4 thin (4-5 mms) slices of dark rye bread (the bread does not need to be fresh)
“spray lard”
Salt & Pepper

Garnis
15-20 raspberries
Fresh herbs

4 slices of dark rye bread, buttered

Preparation of the beef tartare
Process the meat in a meat grinder, until all the fat and irregularities are gone. If you do not have a meat grinder this can be done with a super sharp knife.
Stir the minced meat with all the ingredients and season the mince with salt & pepper.

Créme of smoked cheese
Stir the smoked cheese with the sour cream and season the mix with salt & pepper.

Raspberry syrup
Pour the raspberry vinegar and the sugar into a pan. Bring the mix to the boil and leave it boil till it turns into a viscous syrup (10-15 minutes)
Leave the syrup to cool off.
If the syrup is too thick you can thin it with water, if it is too thin you can boil it for another couple of minutes.

Rye bread crisps
Spray a roasting pan with lard. Place the slices of rye bread on the roasting pan and spray them with lard on top. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the slices of rye bread.
Bake the slices of rye bread till they turn crisp (10-15 minutes at 150 degrees Celsius).

Preparation
Make balls of the meat and punch the balls till they have the size and thickness you want. Cut the surface of the tartare with a knife to create a criss-cross-pattern and place the tartare on a plate on top of the buttered bread.
Place a scoop of the crème (about the size of a hen’s egg) on top of the meat. Pour the raspberry syrup in zigzag-pattern over the crème. Garnish with raspberries, rye bread crisps and fresh herbs.

TIP 1
The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration writes on its website: “The risk of getting infected by salmonella from store-bought Danish eggs is very small. You will hardly find any salmonella in Danish eggs.” (updated on 2 August 2017).
If you want to be 100 % sure that you avoid the risk of contamination, you need to use pasteurized eggs. However, they don’t taste as well…
Furthermore it is necessary to maintain a very high kitchen hygiene and use super fresh meat, when serving beef tartare.

TIP 2
If you want your beef tartare to pack more of a punch, add more fresh horseradish.

DRINKS
We recommend a flavourful King’s County Brown from Nørrebro Bryghus and a classic Kronborg Akvavit with the beef tartare.
