Print Recipe
  • 2.5 oz lean, grass-fed beef, free of connective tissue ( sirloin tip, eye of round, etc.)
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 small shallot, finely sliced and pickled in 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (preferably infused with some hot pepper)
  • Several large cranberries ( or frozen)
  • Horseradish root
  • Fresh arugula, (or other spicy greens)
  • Sea salt (or, better still, herb salt)
Directions
  1. Add vinegar to sliced shallot at least ten minutes before preparing the beef. Finely shave the beef, so it is all extremely tender. Mix a small amount of minced garlic, maybe a quarter of a clove, or barely more than sticks to a few fingers. Salt both sides. Thinly slice a few large cranberries. Place cranberry rounds atop the beef. Add a thin, partial layer of the spicy, pickled shallot on top. Shave some new, raw horseradish, preferably with a microplane. Top with fresh arugula, cress, or other spicy greens. Serve immediately.
  2. *Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase risk of foodborne illness.
