  • 70g 5mm diced beef fillet
  • 10g chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp kimchi emulsion
  • 1/2 tsp kimchi liquid

For the soy-cured egg yolks

  • Make the soy-cured eggs 12 hours before you plan to serve the dish by placing the 2 egg yolks in a container covered with the soy. The eggs will harden.
  • Mix together the ingredients for the kimchi emulsion and add to a bowl with the tartare ingredients. Mix well, adjusting the seasoning to taste.
  • To serve, place two metal rings on two plates and add the tartare mixture, pressing down gently.
  • Carefully remove the rings and top each portion with micro herbs and edible flowers.
  • Remove the egg yolks from the fridge, drain and pat dry, and finely grate over the top of the tartare.
  • Serve immediately.
