Celery Root Tartare at Koloman, New York City
At Koloman, Chef Markus Glocker is doing some pretty cool stuff with a veggie-focused tartare. He bakes whole celery roots in salt and grinds them down until they’re just like the texture of regular beef tartare.
It is then tossed in a wicked combo of brandy, capers, and tomato reduction, turning it into this bright orange work of art.
Beef Tartare at Boia De, Miami
At Boia De, chefs Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer have whipped up a cool spin on vitello tonnato. They hand-chop hanger steak and mix it up with a creamy sauce made from tuna, vinegar, and egg yolks.
The result is beef tartare that’s packed with bold, rich flavors. They then top it off with toasted breadcrumbs and fried capers for that extra crunch. The rice chip-like crisps made from thin slices of tendon, and they’re just the cherry on top of this sensory feast!
Venison Tartare at Lord’s, New York City
Chef Ed Szymanski whips up an amazing tartare using sweet, lean venison. He adds a forest-like twist with some rosemary oil to even out the sweetness.
It’s paired with roasted salsify puree and fried crisps for a hint of earthy vanilla taste. Staying true to his British background, he throws in some pickled mustard seeds to give it a zing.
Beef Tartare at Olamaie, Austin
Amanda Turner, the chef at Olamaie, uses roasted beets that she’s pickled in a bread and butter brine and mixes them with some diced Texas wagyu.
She serves it on a sauce made from beef tallow egg yolk, and tops it off with beet tapioca chips and edible flowers for some extra flair. She also adds a sprinkle of beef fat powder to give it that extra punch of flavor.
Beef Tartare at Birdie’s, Austin
Birdie’s, crowned as the best restaurant of 2023, dishes out a Texas-style twist to the usual French bistro chow. The genius behind the menu, Chef Tracy Malechek, pairs a juicy flatiron steak with crunchy toasted pecans, hearty wheat berries, and smoky shiitake mushrooms.
She also adds a dollop of rosemary aioli that’s got a kick of pine. There’s also the huge carta di musica, a super crispy cracker from Sardinia that’s perfect for scooping up every tasty bit of this fancy beef tartare.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Check out this simple oat cake recipe that’s loaded with nutrients to make your breakfast even more delicious and satisfying. It’s super easy to make and makes a great-tasting breakfast without any fuss, plus it doesn’t require too many ingredients.
Oatmeal has long been a healthy breakfast staple. They are full of health benefits as they have beta-glucan, a dietary fiber that lowers “bad” cholesterol. Oats also contain soluble fiber, which helps reduce blood sugar levels by slowing digestion and lowering the amount of sugar absorbed into the blood. The soluble fiber in oats helps with gastrointestinal issues, which may contribute to other health benefits such as improved digestive health and weight loss. Oatmeal also keeps your stomach full for a longer period of time when compared to ready-to-eat meals like cereals.
● ½ cup rolled or quick oats
● A pinch of salt
● ½ teaspoon baking powder
● 1 banana, ripe
● Cooking Spray
● 1 large egg
● 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or less if you’re cutting down on sugar or using other sweet add-ins)
Directions for baking
Take a blender, add all the ingredients in it, and blend it nicely until smooth and ready to pour.
It’s time to prepare the utensil. Take a large bowl and coat it with cooking spray. Once done, pour the blended batter into the bowl and spread it evenly. Make sure the size of the bowl is at least twice the amount of batter.
Keep the bowl in the microwave and let it cook for a good 90 to 120 seconds.
Once it’s baked nicely, take the container out and let it cool before drizzling it with the fruits of your choice.
Tricks to make the cake more delicious
